TL;DR: a Mk2 repair pack, and a few researches to increase repair speed

slightly longer version:

this would add a few researches, one of them being the unlocking for a mk 2 repair pack, which would have more health, and repair faster, and after that a few researches that increase the repair speed, but only a low percentage.
a possible specific configuration we came up with would be

When would I need faster repair speed? It’s pretty fast as is. :)

Upgrade systems are fun only if the upgrades are meaningful.

Yes, unless you use rocket silos as defensive walls, I struggle to see cases where a faster repair pack would be of much additional benefit, nor do I see compelling reasons to make the MK2 repair pack over more MK1 repair packs. The speed of repair is never the limiting speed of anything in factorio.

If the MK 1 repair pack only healed things to half health, I could see a possible niche, but otherwise, no.
