  1. Hi All, I've been going through my Saracen, getting it ready for registration and conducted a bit of an audit of the fire extinguishers today: It is currently fitted with 5 of the BCF (Halon) bottles, NSN: 4210-99-881-4724, all of which were manufactured in the early 80s.

I would prefer something that fits in the standard brackets, but I don't mind if they are red civilian type bottles, as long as they get the job done in the event that they have to be used. I am also considering installing a "fire bomb" fixed suppression system. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with these in AFVs? Thanks, Terry
