continued support of our operator partners who choose to operate the legacy systems.

  • Designed in close coordination with US Forest Service, US Air Force, and Lockheed Martin
  • 2,700 US gallon capacity
  • Roll on / roll off system can be installed or removed in under an hour with no structural modifications to the aircraft
  • Enables aircraft flexibility and multi-mission capability
  • Retardant delivered from the lowered cargo door in rear of the aircraft
  • Trailer and necessary ground support equipment included for storage and installation
  • OEM Service Bulletins and USAF TCTOs apply


The current model MAFFS II System includes all of the features of the original system plus:

  • Upgraded 3,000 US gallon capacity
  • Onboard air compressors use aircraft power to allow for in-flight tank pressurization and untethered operations with far shorter ground servicing time
  • Retardant now delivered from an S-duct installed in the paratroop door on the side of the aircraft
  • All doors remain closed and the aircraft stays sealed and pressurized which eliminates drag and increases aircraft performance
