One Griet-II self-sealing hypermatter tank for a fighter

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

PRODUCTION INFORMATION
  • Manufacturer: Ringovinda Systems
  • Model: Griet-II self-sealing hypermatter tank
  • Affiliation: Open-Market
  • Modularity: No

  • Production: Mass-produced
  • Material: Rubberized molytex, safety foam
SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Safety foam: allows for swelling in presence of hypermatter
Strengths:
  • Prevents hypermatter leaks from spilling out significant quantities of hypermatter
  • Multiple failsafes allowing crashworthiness
Weaknesses:
  • Heavier than a non-self-sealing hypermatter fuel tank
  • Large leaks take longer to re-seal
  • The innermost two layers take longer to re-seal if fuel is low, due to their reliance on absorbing ambient hypermatter
DESCRIPTION
It was decided, due to supply problems plaguing its predecessor, to rely on a different compound for the outer casing, molytex. Nevertheless, it remains most of the basic design features of its predecessor. The Griet-II self-sealing hypermatter tank is an hypermatter tank that contains several layers of safety, allowing a vehicle equipped with it to avoid fuel leaks from destroying the vehicle. The innermost layer contains a special safety foam, dividing the fuel content in so many different micro-compartments small enough to prevent combustion. The safety foam can swell in the presence of hypermatter until it fills all the space as constrained by the second layer, made of rubber. Should a Griet-II fuel tank take a hit from the outside, the molytex layer will re-seal itself quickly, with the rubber layer underneath it absorbing hypermatter until the hole in the tank is sealed. The speed at which the process occurs will allow hypermatter leaks to only diffuse a limited amount of hypermatter before the breach is sealed, with the resulting assembly being crashworthy. Despite the use of molytex, larger leaks take much longer to re-seal and it might be a little late.
