A Manitex Based Heavy Rescue?

Now here's an impressive vehicle that I'm suprised hasn't made it's way onto the USAR circuit yet. This vehicle seems very versatile, and with some compartmentation (including modular units), this could make a great support vehicle for a USAR team.

I wonder if the Manitex folks could partner with a fire apparatus firm to market this as a USAR unit?
