the Night Landing
The Night Landing is a small, lightweight craft that the forces of Cobra can use on insertions into enemy territory. One can use the 42 HP outboard motor for speed, but they can also rely on the oars alone for stealthy movement on the waves. It has these vehicular capabilities:
.45 Caliber Machine Gun: the Night Landing raft's main armament, this front-mounted, air-cooled cannon can be fired to inflict serious damage. It inflicts rank value 20 Piercing damage when firing a short burst, or rank value 30 Piercing damage when firing continuously.
12mm Machine Gun: a supplement to the Night Landing raft's primary weapon, this small gun inflicts rank value 6 Piercing damage when firing a single round, rank value 10 Piercing damage when firing a short burst, or rank value 20 Piercing damage when firing continuously.
Bullet-Resistant Construction: the Night Landing raft is a self-inflatable nylon/polyskin raft with a bullet-proof engine shroud. It can absorb respectable damage before losing buoyancy (hence its rank value 10 Durability), though complete deflation requires 1d10 turns.
Tools: to help deal with problems as they arise, the Night Landing raft is equipped with a few handy tools. It has a shovel, useful for hiding the Night Landing (once deflated) to avoid discovery, and a knife, for cutting things when necessary (both of m.v. 40).
Two-Way Radio: allowing the pilot of the Night Landing raft to communicate with a home base or other operatives in the field, this two-way communications system functions with rank value 6 power, allowing a maximum ten mile communications range.

When GI Joe first reformed upon Cobra's return to the world stage, it made use of this small landing craft. Directly lifted from captured Cobra Night Landing craft, and given a new, black finish, the Navy SEAL Night Landing raft is otherwise identical.

If Cobra is known for anything, it's that it likes a cheap ride. The Night Rafts were proven thirty years ago, so Cobra reissued them in 2014, since manufacturing costs for them are even lower these days. They released Night Rafts in Cobra blue and black this year.
