Fixed and mobile tactical shelters in war zones enhance a military commander’s ability to mobilise, deploy, manoeuvre and sustain forces. ‘Fixed’ means housed in a permanent structure, whereas ‘mobile’ denotes a unit that is transportable and deliverable. Rapidly deployed to fulfil versatile applications in support of the increasingly complex defence operations of the 21st Century, mobile shelters in steel or lightweight aluminium alloy are designed to have a high strength-to-weight ratio. They range from small, trailer- or vehicle-mounted types to containers that are moved into position by helicopter.
