    BUSHMASTER Water tank

    Good evening

    Does anyone on the forum know how many litres of water an Australian Army Bushmaster holds?

    Thanks.

    It depends on the model.

    2006 is 211 litres.

    2012 is 250 litres. Apparently it sits under the hull as an explosives buffer.

    ~180l is immediately usable, you need to park up on an angle to get the in tank pump to get the rest and you still wind up needing to manually pull out the last bit with a syphon hose as part of the 12 monthly clean up.

    Attached a couple of photos for the record. Final question does the shape indicate the capacity?

    Cheers.
