Amphibious Airtankers

More generally known as water bombers, these airtankers are capable of scooping water off a lake into the onboard hopper and dropping it on a forest fire. Often, as determined by a particular agency, a suppressant (see FAQ for explanation of suppressants) is injected into the load of water after scooping to enhance the effectiveness of the drop.
