What aircrafts use HFC-125 as a flame suppressant and how does it compare to competing agents?

DSIAC staff conducted research on what aircrafts are equipped with HFC-125 flame extinguishing system and performance comparisons with other chemical flame extinguishers. There were multiple aircraft that were confirmed to use HFC-125 for the engine nacelle fire protection system, and others that possibly use it. An extensive bibliography was compiled of the research and delivered to the requester.
