E-045 – US Military Fuel Canisters

Overview US Military Fuel Canisters (MFC) are manufactured by the Canadian company Scepter. You may find there more info about canister as well as some more technical information. Such MFCs are used not only by the US Military but are exported worldwide, sometimes with different inscriptions. While both fuel and water looks almost identical, main feature is different handle. Each MWC has a uniform, integrated single handle that, in the dark, prevents mistaking it for the three handled MFC.


Scepter company releases Military Water Canisters in following colours:
  • Am Green
  • Am Sand
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Desert Sand
Of course all canisters can be repainted in the field so you may see it painted with any camouflage colour, sometimes even contrast like shown in references — black overpainted with sand and carried by green Stryker in Europe. Photo by Łukasz Orczyc-Musiałek.
