Saeder-Krupp Heavy Industries Fire-Retardant Foam Spraying Unit and Fire-Retardant Expanding Foam


The SK-FFSU is a backpack sized unit (similar in size and shape to a flame thrower) that is able to deliver the special Saeder-Krupp Fire-Retardant Expanding Foam. The foam and propellant are contained in an easily swapped out canister that can be ejected and replaced without the wearer removing the unit. The canister can also be tossed and remotely detonated like a grenade, delivering all the remaining foam in a single burst. The nozzle can be choked to adjust from concentrated burst to wide angle delivery with a simple AR command or manually. Each canister contains enough foam to cover 100 square meters with each shot able to cover a maximum of 5 square meters.

The Saeder-Krupp Fire-Retardant Expanding Foam has several unique properties making it the perfect choice for your fire prevention needs. The foam is completely non-toxic and is safe to use around Meta-humans, animals and plants (Note: some spirits may react badly to the foam so please do not use it in the presence of fire based creatures of magic). The foam is also non-conductive and inert so it is safe to use around high voltage equipment and hazardous chemicals. As an additional feature the foam harmlessly breaks down into inert gasses when exposed to intense UV light. This exponentially speeds up its removal and allows your facility to return to active use in the fraction of the time of conventional foams.
CAUTION: SK-FREF can cause surfaces to become extremely slippery when coated.

perhaps you could add in some of the social bonuses from the firefighter armor in run and gun? Seems like you might need them not to scare the drek out of the people you are trying to save

I know the interal air tank has rules in the Core book - and it's far from the first time realism has been forsaken for gameplay - but it's just caused me to realise that a 2 hour air supply would need a 17.4L tank to hold it. A rating 3 internal tank would be just over 25L. :o

Not sure how useful ultrasound would be, fireys tend to make a lot of noise. The rumble of a fully charged hose would cancel out many of the benefits would it not?

There are experiments and research going on now on ultrasound in fire fighting. Thermography is the latest advance that I am aware of, and something like this is on drawing boards right now.
Spooky, what do you do this pass? Shoot him with my thunderstruck gauss rifle. (Rolls)  8 hits. Does that blow his head off?

That makes sense then, I wasn't aware that was being worked on.

Also remember that ultrasound isn't blasting sound; it's using specific frequencies, coded pulses, and listening for those particular echoes.
