the Bomb Disposal Unit

The GI Joe Bomb Disposal Unit is a small, heavily armored vehicle the team can use to perform EOD (explosive ordnance disposal), whether clearing an area or when trying to get rid of a pesky, undetonated missile the enemy dropped on you. It has these capabilities:

RV 10
RV 2
RV 40
RV 30 *

Armored Chassis: the Bomb Disposal Unit is naturally heavily armored, since explosives tend to go off in front of - or on - the thing directly. It has an effective material value (Durability) of 40, making it resolute even in the face of the most potent weaponry.

Deflector Shield: this spaced-armor honeycomb shield is built to protect the driver of the Bomb Disposal Unit from exploding ordnance - which happens more often than you'd imagine around the thing. It provides the listed Protection rating on the vehicle, against front-based attack.

Hydraulic Claw: formed by an armored shovel / plate mounted on the Bomb Disposal Unit and a hydraulic arm, this metal appendage allows the BDU's operator to scoop up large explosives without actually touching them, and move them around with rank value 30 Brawn.

* This Protection rating only applies to attacks striking the front of the Bomb Disposal Unit - whether they be passive or active in nature. If the vehicle is struck from the side or the rear, its operator only benefits from a rank value 6 Protection rating, instead.
