China recently unveiled its latest tool in the fight against high-rise fires: a jet-powered water cannon. This water cannon has a range of almost 400 feet and can shoot out 3 tons of water in one minute.

To call the jet-powered water cannon impressive is an understatement. This thing is unbelievably amazing! All of this awesomeness comes at a price -- $455,000 to be exact. Unfortunately, with a price tag that high it doesn't seem likely that the cash-strapped fire departments of the U.S. will be able to bring this bad boy stateside anytime soon.
