Musthane offers a fuel distribution solution to aircraft (FARE – Forward Area Refueling Equipment) for advanced operations in hostile terrain in the form of a kit. Each field fuel distribution kit allows the dispensing of fuel from a tanker truck or from other means of transport. Then the storage of approximately 8000 liters of aviation fuel can take place in the four flexible tanks. These flexible tanks are very robust, air-droppable, air transportable and can also be towed by a towing fork behind a vehicle.
This equipment can also be part of a FAARP (Forward Area Ammunition and Refueling Point) associated with our helicopter landing mats (Mustmove HELIPAD). In this case, the aim is to provide a mobile pad for refueling and rearming combat helicopters. Please note that Musthane does not supply any ammunition or armament.
The aviation fuel distribution depot includes in particular a high-performance motor pump and filtration unit of 200 lpm (12m3/h) or 400 lpm (24m3/h).
Main features of the FARE:
Total weight of a FARE: approx. 1700kg (with 4 tanks of 1900L (500USG))
Overall dimensions: approx. 4400mm x 2150mm x 1300mm
Filtration: Complies with the civil or military aviation fuel filtration standard in effect or the standard required in your specifications.
Total storage capacity: 7600L (2000USG),
Modularity: the system can be combined with other modules (larger tanks, different pumps, etc.).
