Step 2. Attach your choice of fuel can to the rear plate. There is a slot to help guide your placement.

Important: This step must be done before you attach the upper hull or else you will have a difficult time placing the fuel cans

Note that the larger Drum was more typically used in the Gulf War however both options are perfectly valid for any force
