The Sprint-class rescue craft, nicknamed the med runner, was a medical frigate manufactured by SoroSuub Corporation and employed by the Galactic Republic and later, the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
Thirty meters long, the Sprint-class carried three crew members and five medics, with space for up to forty patients. The ships could also hold one month's worth of consumables, and two metric tons of cargo.
It had a Class 1 hyperdrive and a Class 12 backup. The ship could achieve 1,150 kilometers per hour in atmosphere. The ship was shielded, but lacked offensive weaponry. With military-grade sensors, the med runner was able to respond to distress signals in deep space.
Med runners were used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. Several med runners transported the dead and wounded to Coruscant following the Battle of Boz Pity. The med runner Bright Flight was hijacked by Asajj Ventress, who used it to escape into the Unknown Regions after her betrayal at the hands of Count Dooku.
