The Modular Fuel System (MFS) provides the ability to rapidly establish a fuel distribution and storage capability without a bag farm or engineer support. The system can be used at any location without the availability of construction and material handling equipment.
Consisting of fourteen 9,464 liter / 2,500 gallon tank racks and two pump filtration modules, the MFS increases mobility, capacity and speed in fuel distribution, while decreasing deployment and recovery time. The MFS is mobile, whether it is full, partially full or empty. It is compatible with the Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck, Load Handling System (LHS), the Palletized Load System (PLS) truck and trailer, and the United States Marine Corps Logistics Vehicle System Replacement. The MFS tank racks can also be used for line-haul of bulk petroleum throughout the theater. By using two tank racks — one on the truck and one on the trailer — the PLS and LHS can transport up to 18,927 liters / 5,000 gallons of bulk petroleum per trip.
The MFS is a logistics support system for Modular Brigades and provides liquid logistics support for the Army’s Future Combat Systems.
