Can anyone tell me what the two containers in the middle were used for?



Also, what color they might be. I recognized the 5 gal. can, and the ammo box, but the other two have me at a loss. Any help would be appreciated. Al

No idea. Those are not standard US military containers. My guess is they are commercial water/fuel jugs that have been added to the set.

Paint them red with a yellow cap or blue with a black cap.

Break Free/CLP comes in a container that looks VERY similar to the smaller of the two. Raise the handle, call it good.

Thanks for the replies. Thought they might add a splash of color to the stowage rack. I'll have to give some thought to whether I'll use 'em, or not. Al

You're right, they do look similar. Al

Probably will go with your suggestion if I decide to use them. Al
