FUEL TANK SELF-SEALING (FTSS) SYSTEM
SCOPE
This section provides the instructions for applying the FTSS System to M967/M967A1 fuel tankers. The FTSS
System is a coating applied to the exterior surface of the fuel tank vessel that will seal a leak caused by small arms
fire within twenty minutes of impact. Once sealed, the fuel tanker may continue operating under normal
conditions. In the event the FTSS System does not seal a leak within twenty minutes, a repair kit is provided to
patch the affected area. Refer to Chapter 5, FTSS Repair Kit, for instructions on applying the field patch
assemblies.
VEHICLE PREPARATION
The following list details the locations and components that must be removed to allow access to restricted areas of
the fuel tanker before the FTSS System coating is applied. Once the coating has been applied, dried, and
inspected, some of the components may be reinstalled. For component replacement instructions, spare, and
mandatory replacement parts, refer to TM 9-2330-356-14 and TM 9-2330-356- 24P.
