Ke-XS-2600es escape pods, used by YE 26 and YE 27 era starships of the Star Army of Yamatai, are capable of sustaining life for 120 hours (five days) and contain 75 standard Star Army Field Rations, 150 gallons of Water, a WickedArms TA-17 Survival Kit , a WickedArms TA-13 Field Surgery Kit , and 5 Army Multi-Species Environmental Suits, sealable plastic bags for waste storage, blankets, and cleaning wipes. The pods also have a stasis function, and can support their occupants in stasis for over a century. Each pod contains a homing device, but it must be manually activated. The pods will automatically put themselves into a safe descent if there is a planet nearby (rather than burning up in the atmosphere). The escape pods have no FTL propulsion.
Each Ke-XS-2600es escape pod able to hold up to five human-size people inside it.
Ke-XS-2600es escape pods were made obsolete by their successor, the Ke-S3-X2900, which added FTL capability.
