Ground military > AFSS for Wheel Vehicles

Download full AFSS brochure


Tactical vehicles and heavier armoured vehicles are often used in peace keeping and police operations. In both cases cocktail Molotovs thrown by insurgents can easily attack the vehicle tyres.

Once on the rubber tyre, the smouldering fire could extend from the wheels to the whole vehicle, pressing the crew to evacuate the vehicle and exposing them to sniper or enemy fire.

A manual foam extinguishing system can be installed to suppress the fire and generate a barrier between the tyre and the fire threat.
