Are you thinking about filament wound composite for the new cylinders or are you sticking more "Old School" ? Or can that never work.
We can have some good old boilerplate spun into hemispheres that will hold back 300bar and give us a couple of good starts. We won't incur an appreciable weight penalty so old-school will do just fine on this one and it will look right too. We're tied to 12" OD so the increased wall thickness of a composite bottle would just rob us of volume.
