Lox Bottle Protection Systems
Armour of America’s LOX (liquid oxygen) containment blanket is not only designed to protect against rounds being fired at the aircraft but also against a LOX bottle explosion and subsequent fire. The LOX bottle containment blanket is constructed and designed to provide fragmentation protection, suppress a LOX supported fire and self extinguish the flame up.
