the Crossfire

The Crossfire is a small, fast vehicle the GI Joe team can use to rush into a Cobra-controlled area and wreak havoc. Heavily armed and armored, it is ideal for the hit and run operations that Rumbler is so good at. The Crossfire has these capabilities:

Bounce-Off Deflection Screen (i): the Crossfire has an open cockpit, but is equipped with a ballistic wind shield that can 'bounce' rounds and projectiles off of it. Attacks targeting the driver suffer an increased difficulty to hit, thanks to this hunk of shaped armor.

Break-Thru Xenon Lamps (i): mounted on the front bumper of the Crossfire, these twin lamps can easily illuminate the area in front of the vehicle while its driving at night, doing so with intensity 8 brightness. They also makes a handy surprise blinding attack in a pinch.

Communications Gear (i): the Crossfire is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for intensity 5 communications power, having a 25 mile range, that has intensity 10 signal encryption.

Live Wire Missiles (i): these two rocket-propelled explosives are surface-to-air missiles, mounted on the rear foils of the Crossfire. These missiles can inflict intensity 11 each, raised by +1 if if both are fired at a target at once.

Passengers: the Crossfire is equipped with two side-mounted personnel platforms, allowing one person to occupy each wherever it goes. Of course, such occupants have to hang on tight to the Crossfire, lest some random branch or other obstacle knock them off!

Propulsion (a): the Crossfire, as mentioned previously, is fast. It can move intensity 5 speeds, or approximately 150 miles per hour, given proper surfaces. It goes slower off-road, but can definitely move crazy-fast in a pinch.

Puncture-proof Tires (s): all four of the Crossfire's tires are virtually puncture-proof, making them immune to puncturing and slashing damage at intensity 12, or +3. They still handle other forms of damage (such as energy) in a normal fashion.

Pumper Cannons (a): these twinned 20mm cannons are mounted on the back of the Crossfire, and can swivel up at any angle up to 90 degrees. They can be fired to inflict the driver's Agility +6 damage in a short burst, raised to +7 in a fully automatic spread.

Reinforced Construction (s): the Crossfire is built in a rather sturdy fashion. It's not armored, per se, but the thing is pretty tough in the face of enemy fire. It has an effective m.s. of 8, providing +2 armor to its occupant.

Self-Sealing Fuel Cans (s): these poly-cell fuel containers are built to seal up immediately in the event that they are punctured, say by gunfire (hopefully not with explosive bullets). This makes them resistant to gunfire at intensity 12, or +3.

Spinner Cannons (a): these side-mounted, 9mm rotary barrel cannons can be fired at any target at up to 90 degrees in front of the Crossfire. These guns inflict the driver's Agility +5 in damage when firing a short burst, raised to +6 in a fully automatic burst of lead.
