the Mobile Missile System (MMS)

The Mobile Missile System, or MMS, is a field programmable missile launching system. Easily towed by any vehicle in the Joe arsenal, this platform can fire three Patriot missiles at any opponent within of thirty miles of its location. Its projectiles have these characteristics:

Gd 10
Sh Y 200
Ex 20
Incredible (40) Edged Attack (fragmentary)

These Patriot missiles fly at about Mach 3, making them somewhat difficult to avoid. They inflict Incredible (40) Edged Attack damage to everything within their target area, damage that comes in the form of a spectacular explosion. As much as these rockets cost, that's a must!

The operation of the MMS is further enhanced by these additional features:

Gear Cases: the MMS has various kits tacked onto it, should some sort of emergency arise. For instance, it has a fully stocked first aid kit, tool kit, and a small compartment full of field-replaceable components for the computer control console that is used to acquire targets.

Integral Radar Tracking System: to aid the Patriot missiles' travel, the MMS is guided by a Good (10) ranked radar system which allows it to track targets designated by the field operator on land or in the air - as long as they are within fifty miles of its location.

Stabilizer Legs: the MMS is fully equipped with hydraulic stabilizer legs, enabling it to be utilized in almost any solid terrain. Deepest desert, darkest jungle, or iciest tundra - it makes no difference, as the MMS can fire the same in any of these terrains.

1985 Variations

the Crimson Missile System

A few years after GI Joe started using the MMS, Cobra's Crimson Guard stole the designs for the thing lock, stock, and barrel. The Guard began to use this device as its Crimson Missile System, though aside from its newly sinister paint scheme, it functions identically.
