Stryker… AFES Fire Bottles Make a ChangePosted: 2016/18/04
Crewmen, the fire extinguisher bottles for your Stryker’s automatic fire extinguishing system (AFES) are getting a makeover.
The crew compartment’s composite fire extinguisher bottles, NSN 4210-01-542-0008 for the Stryker and NSN 4210-01-600-8571 for the double V-hull Stryker, are being phased out. They’re being replaced by a steel version, NSN 4210-01-621-9540, that works for both the Stryker and double V-hull Stryker.
The engine compartment’s composite fire extinguisher bottle, NSN 4210-01-541-9993, for both the Stryker and double V-hull Stryker is also being replaced by a steel version, NSN 4210-01-503-1522.
You can still use the composite bottles as long as they’re serviceable.
