the Silver Mirage

A replacement for GI Joe's RAM, the Silver Mirage features more armaments and modernized engineering. A primarily silver motorcycle, it features a green mortar launcher (on the side car) and green missiles scattered across the thing. It possesses these characteristics:

RV 75

RV 20

AXJ-10 Ground Launch Missiles: these self-guided, 'fire and forget' miniature missiles are mounted on both sides of the Silver Mirage. Either the driver or passenger can fire them if need be, and these rockets have the following vehicular capabilities:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 75
Durability
RV 10
Damage
RV 30 Slashing (fragmentary)

Bullet-Resistant Molded Windshield: while the Silver Mirage offers its driver and passenger no overall Protection, it does offer the driver a small amount of defense against attack. This windshield offers the driver rank value 10 protection from frontal attacks only.

Communications Array: the Silver Mirage is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This allows for rank value 10 communications (with a 25 mile range) that has rank value 30 signal encryption.

Mortar Launcher: the primary armament on the Silver Mirage, this front-facing weapon is an actual self-loading mortar, having a ten round ammunition drum. These impressive rounds can be fired to inflict rank value 40 Slashing (fragmentary) damage per deadly shot.

Quartz-Halogen Heated Lights: these heavy duty, impressively warm bulbs can be used to light up an area in front of the Silver Mirage with rank value 20 illumination. Furthermore, the heat they generate is enough to quickly burn off mud and other impediments to forward vision.

1997 Variations

When the GI Joe team was restored after years of Cobra build-up, they pulled lots of their old equipment out of mothballs, including a small fleet of Silver Mirage motorcycles. With the exception of minor color changes (the green bits were repainted black), this is the same vehicle.
