English term or phrase: pick-up bag
A fire control vehicle is always on standby, be it a truck with water similar to a fire-engine or a small one ton pickup truck called a bakkie which has a water tank at the back called a ‘bakkie-sakkie’ (***pickup bag***).

-> je suppose qu'on peut mettre un terme "familier" ici... mais je ne sais pas comment qualifier ce réservoir d'eau amovible placé à l'arrière du petit... pick-up!

Merci :-)

Explanation:
"Bakkie sakkie is almost ready to go - it has been modified somewhat for this patrol with a stronger (bottom red) pump."

ça n'a rien d'un sac, c'est un réservoir en plastique rigide - c'est une traduction littérale de l'afrikaans "bakkie-sakkie" littéralement "bac-sac"

Notes to answerer
Asker: oui d'ailleurs j'hésitais à mettre une traduction littérale pour coller au terme afrikaans "sympa"/familier... le style du magazine me le permettrait (revue du constructeur des camions en question...)
