Fireships dousing the Invisible Hand

The F-143 emergency firespeeder was a fire suppression ship manufactured by Rothana Heavy Engineering. Designed to provide essential disaster relief, these speeders carried several fire-retardant agents including tanks of water and foam on the ship's undercarriage. These fire-fighting solutions were released through pressurized dousers mounted to the vehicle's four wingtips.[1]

A tractor beam projector was fitted below the heat-resistant cockpit to shift debris during emergencies. The interior was equipped with a medical bay where crewmembers could treat serious injuries quickly, and the exterior featured flashing emergency lights.[1]

The ship was equipped with water spray, foam spray, fire retardant and agents.[1]

The Galactic Republic made use of fireships during the Clone Wars,[5] crewed by members of the Coruscant Rescue Ops equipped with radiation-proof suits and handheld fire suppression hoses.[1]

Several fireships were mobilized in an attempt to put out the flaming wreck of the Invisible Hand as it crash-landed on Coruscant, at the conclusion of the Battle of Coruscant. Fire crews followed the wreck down to an airstrip landing, dousing flames on the hull with their dousers.[5]

The Royal House of Naboo also maintained fire teams, who were mobilized during the Imperial Operation: Cinder following the Battle of Endor. The teams' dousers were brought to bear on the fires caused by typhoon-strength storms.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The emergency fire suppression speeder was originally created for the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[5]
