the Jet Pack

Though developed several years later than the competition's comparable technology, Cobra's Jet Pack is designed to counter GI Joe's JUMP. While it's heavier and bulkier, there's no denying that trading off man-portable capability is made up for with sheer capability.

The Jet Pack is faster and more heavily armed than its counterpart, after all, even if it isn't quite so easily transported into position - flying it there directly notwithstanding. Overall, Cobra's Jet Pack features the following vehicular capabilities:

Handling
RV 10
Velocity
RV 30
Durability
RV 20
Protection
RV 0

Flight: utilizing its boxy, twin Double Pack 5M/LB thrust turbo-fan engines, the Jet Pack can achieve speeds of around 204.55 miles per hour, possessing this ability at rank value 30. This allows almost any Cobra operative to become air support in an instant!

Neutralizers: mounted on each wing of Cobra's Jet Pack, these AIM-44 air-to-air missiles allow its pilot an additional offensive option while in flight. They behave as listed below when fired singly, but add a +1 RS to the damage inflicted if both strike a target at once:

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

Quad Blast Machine Guns: the Jet Pack's primary armaments are four twinned, axial machine guns that can swivel horizontally. They can fire a short burst of ammunition to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage, or fire continuously to inflict rank value 40 Piercing damage.
