DESCRIPTION

The Unit Water Pod System (Camel II) is the Army’s primary water distribution system. Camel II replaces the M107, M149 and M1112 series water trailers. It consists of an 800- to 900-gallon-capacity baffled water tank with integrated freeze protection and all hoses and fittings necessary to dispense water by gravity flow. The system provides a one-day supply of potable water for drinking and other purposes. If the unit has another source of drinking water, such as bottled water, then the Camel II can provide two days of potable water for other purposes. The system also contains six positions for filling canteens and five-gallon water cans.
