    Default Macaw Fire Extinguisher Bracket for HMMWV

    Well I thought I knew about most HMMWV add-on kits to date, but I missed this one that the USMC came up with. The Macaw unit is a backpack foam system that uses compressed air and a foam solution to shoot a jet of foam at a fire. The system can also be used for decontamination with a different foam agent. I snagged pictures from the various vendors that have these bracket kits for sale. I'm not sure I will be adding one to my HMMWV in the intended location though. There is also a second set of brackets for a Halligan bar used for forcible entry etc.

    I have eyeballed some of these and they are in my eyes huge in comparison to the pics and take up considerable real estate. Nice pelican case. Tons out of gp Albany. La surplus also had some listed.
