The AAFARS is delivered in two TRICON containers, similar to that shown in figure 15 below. Each TRICON container has
a loading plan diagram inside one door. Following the loading plan allows the entire AAFARS, including twelve fuel drums,
to be packed in the TRICON containers for inter-theater deployment and storage.
The containers may be used as individual units or latched together by connecting links (4 provided with each container).

Twelve 500-gallon shortie fuel drums and one drum towing yoke, figure 16, are provided with each AAFARS. The fuel
drums have ports on both ends to accommodate fuel recirculation. The fuel drums are hermetically sealed, non-venting and
puncture resistant. However, should a puncture occur, an emergency repair kit is supplied with the system, designed to
control the leak until the drum can be emptied.
The towing yoke separates into two pieces that fold flat for transportation and storage.
