Firefighters are trained to combat fires and carry specialized equipment for the job, battling dangerous blazes with anything from simple compressed-water hoses to flame-retardant foams. However, not all military firefighters are strictly non-combatant. Most notable of these are troopers of the 24th Hellfire Battallion of the 17th Avalon Hussars. Mounted on compact all-purpose vehicles, these soldiers are capable of fighting fire and the enemy.
Members of the Twenty-fourth make use of Thunderstroke II Gauss Rifles as their armament, primarily because gauss rifles lack the ability to cause fires. Rather than support weapons, these Firefighters carry firefighting equipment, such as shovels and chemical sprayers.
