The Camel class Medical Launch is a non-combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 1-G and J-0 performance with a streamlined cone hull.


The CAMEL (Committee on Auxiliary Medical and Emergency Launches) medical launch was designed to be used as a method of evacuating casualties directly to a waiting hospital ship. The couches can be removed and replaced with stretchers for the more seriously wounded. Large side doors allow easy access into and out of the craft, and an onboard medic has a large variety of first aid supplies. Not only does the craft have wartime applications, it can also be used the same as any other launch, and additional peacetime medical applications increase its versatility. Several thousand launches of this type have been constructed, although a large majority of medical launches in use have been converted from a standard launch.
