|Manual Descending Equipment|
|Main Operator:|| Virgil Tracy|
Manual Descending Equipment is carried aboard Thunderbird 2, and is used when ever a descent is needed down mineshafts or other confined spaces.
The equipment consists of a compressed air rifle that can fire steel rods into structures. These then support ropes, to which an abseil harness is attached. The person is then lowered down to the required depth.
The equipment is very compact and can be carried on the back of a hoverbike.
