Abstract : In a military vehicle having an upright fuel tank, an improved hollow panel containing pressurized fire-suppressant, the panel being located so that the suppressant sprays through an opening formed in the panel by an enemy projectile after its passage through the fuel tank. The hollow panel is reinforced against premature bursting forces by the provision of internal partitions running parallel to the major axis of the panel; the major walls of the panel are curved or bowed parallel to the minor axis of the panel to further reinforce the panel against premature bursting.
