Crash Survival Kit
Survival Gear – Rebels operating on unsettled worlds, in dangerous environments, or in the vacuum of space require special gear to protect them from environmental hazards. The following is a short list of some of the more common pieces of survival equipment used by Rebels in the field.
From Age of Rebellion
Popular among pilots and vehicle crews, crash survival kits are a necessary precaution for those who regularly travel through inhospitable areas. Small ships such as starfighters, gunboats, small freighters, and even escape pods will have one survival kit for each crew member, while ships with larger crews have kits designed to meet the emergency survival needs of a set number of individuals. Most survival kits include a thermal cloak, a multi-tool or survival knife, a distress beacon, two emergency comlinks, a spool of wire, ration bars, a basic medpac, two respirators, a water jug with filter, a glow rod, fifty meters of high-tensile microfiber line, ten ration packs, and an emergency flare gun. Military pilots, smugglers, and bounty hunters often include a small-frame blaster pistol as well.
From Edge of the Empire
While life is usually controlled and comfortable, there are many times when physical survival becomes an issue. A forced landing might strand a crew deep in Tatooine’s deserts, or a speeder failure could result in extended durations in glacial snow. Most ships, especially smaller ones such as fighters and escape pods, contain kits to help ensure survival until rescue or repair. Pretormin Environmental (a company specializing in exploration and survival gear) makes a popular model of survival kit small enough to fit into an escape pod or snubfighter. Their contents include a thermal cloak, multipurpose knife, distress beacon, two emergency comlinks, wire spool, ration bars, basic medpac (equivalent of the GLiS Emergency Medpac), two respirators, water filter and jug, glowrod, 50 meters of high strength microfiber, ten ration packs, and a flare gun. Some pirates would augment their kits with compact blasters or other weapons, knowing that often their enemies will also be eagerly searching for them, although Pretormin Environmental doesn’t equip their kits with weapons as standard.
