Our two 50-gallon tanks are 67 inches long, 19 inches in diameter and the complete tank weighs 947 lbs. when filled with 727 lbs. of FS. It ejects smoke for a period of about 25 to 80 seconds. The US Navy also fitted huge smoke screen tanks to their patrol boats and given their great speed, could put up a huge smoke screen in a matter of minutes, depending upon weather conditions and the number of boats laying down the screen.
The museum would like to sincerely thank all those that have provided items for the museum so far. Your generosity is most appreciated, and we look forward to finding the perfect home for your pieces, when the museum opens its doors.
