DESCRIPTION

With the creation of the Templar Rangers and the establishment of their jurisdiction throughout Confederate space, the need to adequately equip this new force, and the planetary law enforcement, became painfully apparent. As such, one of the first designs set forth as a means of augmenting the Rangers' endeavor to protect and serve the citizens of the CIS was the TPR-001: Hornet Airspeeder. This vehicle was designed specifically to allow a member of law enforcement to quickly maneuver about the environments of any Confederate world with ease and swiftness, in addition to providing them a reliable means of pursuing and detaining criminals. Furthermore, this vehicle is poised to act as the mainstay of efforts to suppress any and all riots that break out.

To this end, the Hornets were equipped with top of the line Lifeform Scanners, a duo of repeating blaster cannons, and a grenade launcher fitted to fire canisters bearing humane gases; such as tear gas, smoke, or forcebreaker gas. It is noted that the launcher houses a fire selection mechanism, allowing the pilot to choose which canisters are fired in what order. Furthermore, the efficiency of the autopilot is relatively standard. The Hornet can be remotely commanded to hover in place or move to various destinations via the aforementioned remote commands. However, due the absencd of an AI or droid brain, the Hornet is not programmed to autonomously fire. A pilot must always be present to pull the trigger. All in all, the Hornet is poised to be an exceptional tool for the upholding of law and order within Confederate worlds.

This is probably a fault of our template, but can I get a minimum and optimal crew please? How many grenades can the vehicle hold, and does it have a sorting system to use multiple grenade types at once? And can I get some elaboration on the efficiency of the autopilot?

Edited. Crew numbers have been added, in addition to mention about the grenade launcher and auto-pilot efficiency. Basically , the pilot can select which grenades fire in which order, and the speeder itself can hover in place or move to locations via remote commands on the part of the pilot. It cannot perform advanced maneuvers nor fire on it's own, but can ferry a Ranger from point A to point B.
