GKN Aerospace’s self-sealing fuel tanks enhance the platform’s survivability in today’s theatres of operation, providing extended protection for the crew against weapons such as heavy machine guns, vehicle and aircraft armaments. These tanks offer the market’s most rapid self-sealing response to ballistic damage with 7.62mm to 20mm round protection available for all types of fuel containment systems. The company’s ballistically tolerant technology can be integrated at the design phase of a vehicle, retro-fitted or externally fitted at a later stage to ensure fuel supply is maintained during frontline operations.
