This has now become routine for militaries all over the world. Inactive ships, tanks, aircraft, weapons and supplies are maintained in a state of readiness by dry air storage.
This technology provides an increased combat readiness whilst significantly reducing maintenance costs.
- The stored equipment does not require regular inspection or maintenance, thereby saving on both time and human resources.
- There will be negligible material degradation and sensitive electronic equipment is kept in good working order, ultimately increasing combat readiness.
