The primary mission of each RMSU was to patch up the Republic's casualties of battle, in an effort to keep attrition to a minimum in the face of the massive and easy-to-replace troops of battle droids that fought for the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

(HNN5)

this was the name given to those Selonians who, during the rise of Thrackan Sal-Solo to power on the planet of Corellia, believed that the planetary repulsors should be used a bargaining chip in negotiations with the New Republic for Selonian sovereignity. They also hoped that they could persuade Han Solo, by rescuing him from Sal-Solo, to help them in these negotiations. Eventually, the part of the Absolutists in the Corellian Crisis allowed the Republicanists to achieve control of their homeworld, when the New Republic dissolved the Absolutists. The Republicanists then set to work to mend their relationship with those Selonians who supported the Sacorrian Triad. (AS, CCW)

this cybernetic prosthesis, manufactured by Control Zone, makes not pretense of being a real hand. It is a template which does not grow synthetic flesh, instead remaining metallic and mechanical. There are no nerve connections to the recipient's sensory systems, so there are no sensations transmitted to the brain. The hand is equipped with a repulsor-field generator which is used to parry weapons in melee combat. (CFG)

any anti-gravity device which uses electromagnetic force to levitate an object off the ground. It uses the available gravity as an opposing force, and actually pushes against that gravity. One of the primary sources of repulsor technology was the planet Bakura, which was usurped by the Empire about three years before the Battle of Endor. The Bakurans found ways to create repulsors of various sizes, and used them in chairs, cars, and cargo carriers. (SW, RPG, TB)

this device is a light source attached to a small repulsorlift which can be used in places where light is needed but cannot be held in place. (JS)

this swoopchase obstacle was the opposite of a Repulsor-In wall.

This meant that racers had to use their swoop's own acceleration to overcome the repulsing force in order to clear the wall. (BSS)

this unique implementation of repulsor technology was developed for ocean-going vessels more than 500 years before the Galactic Civil War. The sails of these vessels were woven with a network of tiny repulsorlift generators, which turned their anti-gravity fields perpendicular to the field of gravity. This caused pressure on the sails that was similar to the forces of wind, allowing a vessel to move about on the water with ot without natural winds. (GMR7)

this is the generic name for any repulsorlift cargo transport. They are often nothing more than a flatbed with a control station at one end. (SWSB)

Repulsor-trip Mine

(SWJ14)

Reservoir-locking Valve
this hydraulic mechanism was used on many older starship models to raise and lower a vessel's landing gear. The valve ensured that they hydraulic fluid remained in a given reservoir, thereby keeping the landing gear in the retracted or extended position, depending on the situation.

this is the eighteenth symbol in the Aurebesh script, and represents the Basic letter "r". (SWM)

Resh Sonax
this Sluissi was the sister of Hass Sonax. When the Empire requested maintenance workers to repair a damaged Star Destroyer, the sisters were accepted as applicants.

this man was the Alliance's commander-in-chief of the Brak Sector, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He held the rank of General at the time. Prior to his service with the Alliance, Reskan was the Commander of the Bacrana System Defense Force. He knew that the Empire would never allow Bacrana remain totally free, and when Moff Lesan Ramier wiped out a group of protestors in Amma, Reskan had had enough. He took those members of the BSDF who would accompany him - virtually the entire force - and fled to the Tel System.
