CB300 SERIES TRANSPORTABLE CONTAINER
THE CB300 series of transportable containers, was developed by Marshall of Cambridge (Engineering) Ltd
from 1962 onwards, to meet a Ministry of Defence requirement for a lightweight, demountable body which would provide
the best possible working conditions under extremes of temperature, usable in mobile and static roles, and
would have an extended service life with minimal maintenance. The first production units were completed in
1964. Basic FVRDE (MVEE) specification is 9720.
|Weight Empty:||from 925kg depending on role||Weight Loaded:||up to 4,500kg depending on role|
|Length external:||4.83m||Length internal:||4.318m|
|Width external:||2.489m||Width internal:||2.324m|
|Height external:||2.13m||Height internal:||1.93|
The container is constructed of aluminium alloy, is lightweight and fully insulated, it is weather-sealed and
may be air-conditioned. It is designed to be carried on any flat platform truck or trailer with a 4,000kg capacity,
and can be operated dismounted in a static role. The CB300 series is air transportable in a Lockheed C130 transport aircraft.
Majority of the CB300 series are NBC compliant, but this is dependent on the role of the container. It's modular construction allows windows, doors and access panels to be positioned to meet specific role requirements.
The CB300 series is designed for the operational installation of specialist pneumatic, hydraulic, signals, electronic, and similar equipment. The containers are also used for specialist repair modules and for use as tactical offices or command posts. Typical roles include use as a fuel injection repair shop or machine shop/aoutomotive repair shop, when it has a wide range of installed equipment, including a combined lathe/milling machine, bench drill, battery charger and a range of specialist items and hand tools. Marshall also manufactures the CB100 series containers, which are approximately half the length of the CB300 series.
