Additional Details

The following foam injection rates are available:
OFF, 0.3%, 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5%, 2.0%, 2.5%, 3.0%, 3.5%, 4.0%, 4.5%, 5.0%, 5.5%, 6.0%
OFF will disable the foam injection.

0.3% through 1.5% will discharge Wetting Agent.
The Wetting Agent will use Water Bullets with increased fire suppression power.

2.0% through 6.0% will discharge Foam Agent.
The Foam Agent will use Foam Bullets. 3.0% equals the regular Foam Bullets on the NextGen and Titanium Series.

Rates less than 3.0% will have lower fire suppression power than the regular Foam Bullets.
Rater higher than 3.0% will have higher fire suppression power than the regular Foam Bullets.

Foam will only be injected if the Attack Line is supplied with water.
If the Attack Line Source is supplying Foam on its own then it will take priority.

If a Foam Jug is almost empty then you can quick-swap it with a full Foam Jug.
This will not stop or interrupt the active foam injection.
To swap a Foam Jug:
- grab a compatible HD Foam Jug
- click on the almost empty Foam Jug next to the Foam Eductor
- the two Foam Jugs will be swapped with each other and a confirmation message will be shown in local chat
- discard the almost empty Foam Jug
