"You've seen the testimonials! You've seen the news feeds! Now your unit can apply for a Free Trial of the Rigal Defence Robotics RR80 Corpsman!

The RR80 is truly a masterpiece of battlefield technology. Here are a list of its features:

Compact! The RR80 folds into a single Cumet and two can stack into a standard ISC formatted drop pod.

Portable! The RR80 is rated to navigate any terrain a human soldier can manage at normal battlefield speeds!

Smart! With a 1.2 HCE (Human Cognative Equivalent) processing array, it is literally smarter then your average soldier!

Expandable! The RR80 is designed with upgradeability in mind and adheres to most industry standards!

Battle Ready! The RR80 makes use of an advanced Kineticite power core, though other power supplies are available as options.

Cost Effective! The RR80 replaces costly battlefield medics and provides very high survivability to injured soldiers. The decreased costs in Wereguild, training and recruitment quickly pay for the units.

The RR80 is a battlefield casualty processing robot. It provides stabilization of most wounds, protection to the victim and evacuation from the area of battle. It appears as a spindly humanoid robot with a large armored chemical tank on its back.

Upon occurrence of a serious injury, the RR80 will immediately (or on command by a human medic) latch itself onto the upper body of the patient. It then begins the process of injury stabilization and simultaneously begins producing a protective multipurpose cocoon.

The victim is injected with biological stabilizers which suspend cell damage due to lack of oxygen. Nanotendrils will enter the brain and torso to regulate or stimulate cardiac and neurological functions as well as deliver various drugs and a minimum of oxygen.

The cocoon is a structure created from an advanced nano-bot enriched foam that has the following properties:

1. Will act as a seal, preventing blood loss and creating a pressure and vacuum resistant shell.
It also prevents further exposure to chemical and biological agents.
2. It stiffens quickly, and is highly damage resistent. The hardened foam will stop small arms, shrapnel and is fire resistent. More advanced units have ablative and laser reflective outer coatings.
3. The reaction within the foam is endothermic, drawing heat from the patient and helping suspend biological functions while also providing a decreased thermal signature.

Once encased, the RR80 will then carry the victim to the nearest regimental first aid station. Or, if so ordered, it can detach itself from the cocoon. A detached cocoon will maintain a soldier for up to 4 hours. While attached to the RR80, a soldier remains viable for up to 72 hours.
