(d) Each module consists of a 600 GPM pumping unit and filter/separator, two 50,000 gallon
collapsible storage tanks and associated hoses, valves, and fittings.
(e) Each module has a hoist that is used to deploy and redeploy the 50,000-gallon tanks.
(f) The R-14 refuels aircraft using either 2 1/2 inch SPR or 2 inch open port nozzles.
(g) The system can receive an issue fuel through four inch KAM-LOCK couplings. This makes
the system compatible with 5,000 gallon tankers used by the Army and Marine Corps.
(h) The R-14 is designed to refuel one heavy aircraft at 600 GPM or two fighter aircraft at 300
(2) R-25 ATHRS.
(a) The R-25 is similar to the R-14 in all respects except that it only consists of one module and
uses two 10,000-gallon tanks.
(b) The system is designed to refuel small aircraft at rates of up to 300 GPM.
(3) R-26 ATHRS.
(a) The R-26 is a general-purpose refueling system designed to operate from one 10,000-gallon
tank, two 500-gallon drums, or four 55-gallon drums.
(b) The system is designed to refuel small aircraft and helicopters or provide ground fuel support.
The system is rated at 100 GPM.
(4) R-22 Trailer-Mounted Transfer Pump.
(a) The R-22 is a cart mounted centrifugal pump rated at 900 GPM.
(b) If used with an MH-2 series hose cart or skid-mounted filter/separator, the R-22 can be used
instead of the R-14 to issue fuel to aircraft.
(5) Aerial Bulk Fuel Delivery System.
(a) The ABFDS is used by the Air Force to provide bulk fuel delivery capability to forward and
(b) One system consists of two 3,000-gallon bladder tanks, a tank armor system, two 600-GPM
pumps that can be operated separately or together, and hoses and fittings.
