About the Medevac Shuttle

The T8-1d version of the Kuma was developed for use by the Star Army Emergency Services medevac Services. A second version, the T8-1e, was made available to Civilian organizations.


In the second year of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War a way to rapidly move injured soldiers to medical facilities both on planet and in space was needed. The medevac Version serves as a space capable ambulance.


The medevac model has the same tapered body design as the original. Except that neither model has has an aether beam cannon, and both have a series of red strobing light bars added. For Star Army of Yamatai owned T8-1d the Star Army Medical logo is present on both sides of the front of the shuttle. Civilian owned T8-1e's have their owning organization logo.
