What is the size of the aluminum IPDS pipe sections? 640 6 inches ID X 19 feet long
On aluminum pipe joints in the IPDS, what is the maximum deflection allowed? 640 7 2%
How often must expansion loops be installed in the IPDS main line runs? 640 at least every 1,000 feet of pipeline
What was FORCE designed to do? 641 FORCE was designed to be a more economical and efficient fuel transfer and pumping system to replace the FMSE equipment.
How many gallons can the FORCE compliment provide for the basic aerial refueling mission? 641 The basic aerial refueling mission objective of the FORCE complement is to provide 400,000 gallons per day sustained and up to 1 million gallons a day surge capability
