British Air Portable Fuel Containers Mk.5 (APFCs)

Gecko Models, 1/35 scale




The Mk 5 APFC is essentially a large rubber bladder, protected with Kevlar, which is used for the bulk transport and storage of up to 2 tonnes of fuel. It can be slung under a helicopter and dropped by parachute.

On its own, it will survive a drop of 7 metres.

Already seen as cargo in one of Gecko’s 6x6 All Terrain Mobility Platform (ATMP) series of models, they are now releasing these separately for diorama purposes.

There are four such containers in the box.

Thanks to Gecko Models for the information and images.
