Pagination or Media Count:
A fire-suppressant mechanism especially designed for suppressing near-explosive fires or slow growth fires in military vehicles. The mechanism includes a thick-walled bottle or container partially or wholly filled with liquid fire-suppressant, such as Halon 1301. A chemical gas-generating cartridge is located at one end of the container for substantially instantaneously generating a very high gaseous pressure within the container, thereby very rapidly expelling the liquid suppressant from the container onto an emergent fire-ball.
