Military Engine Start


The Red Flash™ Portable Power Pack, using the highest grade AGM batteries, is designed to operate in the harshest environments, reliably delivering large peak currents to start all types of vehicles. The robust polyethylene outer case protects the internal batteries and electronics from damage in the field whilst also reducing the weight of the slave battery system to allow it to be fully transportable and man portable. Our equipment is now used world-wide and has a proven reliability in starting all types of military vehicles including helicopters, battle tanks, armoured vehicles, heavy goods vehicles and light aircraft.

“DMS technologies is the leading supplier of power packs to the Hellenic market, and has supplied the Hellenic Army (Special Forces, Infantry, Armour and Artillery Directorates) from 2001. In addition to this, a number of power packs have been delivered to the Hellenic Air Force supporting Training Aircraft and Helicopters. Recently, the Hellenic Forces have purchased the Red Flash Engine Start and Portable Power Packs covering their need for quick and efficient support. We have been totally satisfied by both the products and services provided by DMS technologies. DMS technologies has been established as the most reliable power pack manufacturing company.”
