The Firetank Pirates (ファイアタンク海賊団, Faia Tanku Kaizokudan) are an infamous and notable rookie pirate crew who originated in the West Blue, and arrived on the Sabaody Archipelago around the time the Straw Hat Pirates arrived there two years ago, along with other rookie crews.
Originating in the West Blue, the crew was able to traverse the dangerous Grand Line and make it all the way to Saboady Archipelago.
Whitebeard war SagaEdit
After witnessing most of the war on a screen at Sabaody, the Firetank Pirates travel to Navyford by ship, to witness Shanks ending the war, along with the beginning of the New Age.
After the Fire Tank Pirates enter the New World, their ship is drawn upward to a large black object. The crew screams in terror as the object lifts them out of the sea.
They appear to be based on a mafia family, and many of them are dressed in suits, with coats strapped to their shoulders, and/or wearing fedora hats. Hence they (or at least the captain), like Crocodile, have a look that is very much like the stereotype of Italian mafia.

All of them appear to be consistently armed with rifles, save for their captain, who has an army of men inside of him that work his body like a fortress, thus giving him military advantages. It is shown that many ride horses into battle and some fire cannons from their captain's body.
It can be presumed that they are quite strong for them to have made it all the way to the Sabaody Archipelago and for their captain to have such a high bounty. They, like the Bonney Pirates, were completely unharmed by Kizaru's raid, though they did not encounter the admiral himself or the Pacifista. Their current fate is unknown since they were pulled toward a mysterious, gigantic black sphere in the New World. They also seem quite battle-experienced, knowing exactly what to do when facing off against the navy.
Their ship seems to have a fortress theme, with several cannons at the bow. It has been coated with the Yarukiman resin, allowing it to submerge underwater by reducing its buoyancy, and withstanding the water pressure of 10,000 meters.
