Thanks for that link, I just finished reading it. Very interesting
information contained in this report.
It looks like FIC-1311 is the best alternative to Halon 1301 but nothing is
completely effective in all cases. There are also disadvantages to every
system; i.e., there is no universal "best" method of extinguishing a fire.
My basis for a choice of fire extinguishing agent isn't necessarily the same
as those used by the authors of this report. If my car were on fire with me
in it, Ozone Depletion would not be a great concern to me at that time!

If you're into reading government reports, here's the url for a report on
aircraft fire suppression systems:
http://www.fire.tc.faa.gov/pdf/99-63.pdf It's an 89 page pdf file, and
rather dry, but there's some interesting stuff in it.
And here's the url for FireFox:
