The development of a container to transport and store two auxiliary fuel tanks was initiated because the tanks are being used in pairs, logistics of tank movement are simplified and ease of deployment is increased. The BI-PAC, developed by Plastics Research Corporation, is capable of holding two F-4 six hundred gallon auxiliary fuel tanks in a side by side configuration. Vibration and rough handling tests conducted at the Air Force Packaging Evaluation Agency AFPEA have shown this container to be capable of withstanding simulated environmental hazards. Air Force Packaging Evaluation Agency Project no. 75-P7-29 was undertaken to support ASD4950LGT in performing vibration and rough handling tests on a Fiberglass reinforced plastic container capable of transporting and storing two 600 gallon F-4 auxiliary fuel tanks.
