Rapid Intervention Vehicle No. 25 - Corruscant City Fire and Rescue Divsion
Despite all safety centered technolgie, heavy accidents on the magnetic highways were very common in Corruscant. CCFRD therefore has 225 Fire and Rescue Stations with rapid intervention capabilities - beside 32 with Fireships and 2 heavy rescue carriers in the outer athmosphere.
The RIV has a crew of a pilot and a firefighter and a top speed of 420 mph. The RIV main features are a full automatic fire attack system and a Traffic Warning and Support Drone.
The fire attack system consists of an compressed air foam system and a thermo gel attack unit, each delivered by an zero athmosphere nozzle. This nozzle clears the path of the foam/gel jet from any gases so that the RIV can attack fires at high speed within the athmosphere.
RIV are generally modular to provide bigger foam tanks or patient transportation capabilities.
The TSD (Traffic Warning and Support Drone) normally hovers 100 feet above the scene, warning other pilots and provide lighting. The Drone also can lift heavy objects for recovery. Other Drones were able to search automaticaly for downed pilots or escape pods.
