    The RES-Q Airspeeder fulfills the medical relief role and is capable of withstanding an usually high amount of damage, thanks to its shields and reinforced hull plating. Such features permit the RES-Q to operate safely within conflict areas. This speeder finds its service with planetary governments, the Empire and unfortunately the wretched Rebel Alliance. Medical frigates are normally assigned several of these craft. The RES-Q was on the market at least around the Battle of Hoth.

    Ensuring that transported patients are comfortably moved, an advanced repulsor shock system has been incorporated into the craft. Five bacta trays per side (for a total of ten) line the medical bay walls. Patients on these trays are monitored via a pair of computer stations. Emergency in flight surgery can be performed thanks to an onboard mini-surgery suite. A pair of medical technicians are normally present to assist the MD-O Medical Droid. Located above the medical bay is a supply compartment that is filled with 20 medpacs. The RES-Q's medical rescue mission is highlighted by its pale grey colour. This streamlined oval-shaped vehicle is effectively a mobile medical bay fitted with engines. Its black transparasteel viewport is flanked by a pair of communication antennas. In addition to its retractable landing supports, dorsal and ventral stabilizer fins adorn the craft. A small ion engine afterburner is the secret behind the RES-Q's speed.
