the Eliminator

The Eliminator is a four-wheeled, off-road combat vehicle designed by the Battle Force 2000 team. While its primary operator, Blocker, didn't engineer the thing, it was definitely built with him in mind. He has a way with vehicles you see, a rather aggressive one.

Armed with advanced weaponry above and beyond that which is used by conventional military forces, the Eliminator is equipped with laser weaponry in addition to missile racks and pivoting cannons. There's even more to the Eliminator than is readily apparent, however.

The rear station of the Eliminator can be detached and set up as either a stand-alone gun emplacement or be combined with other components of the Battle Force 2000 vehicles to form their so-called Future Fortress! The Eliminator has the following capabilities:

Attack Jeep:

The 'heart' of the Eliminator, this is what people see - and usually think of - when the vehicle is mentioned. It is an incredibly fast and durable attack jeep, one which functions like a mechanical extension of Blocker and his rough driving style. It is equipped as follows:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 30
Durability
RV 20
Protection
RV 6

Communications Array: the Eliminator's jeep is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for rank value 10 communications power (with a 25 mile range) that has rank value 30 signal encryption.

Deflector Laser Guns: mounted where other vehicles have head lamps, the Eliminator jeep has two laser emitters. These powerful devices inflict rank value 10 Armor Piercing Energy damage individually, raised by +1 RS when fired together, and can turn from side to side.

FLIR Laser Cannon: this Forward Looking Infra-red, Radar-targeted laser cannon can be used to inflict much greater damage than the Eliminator jeep's deflectors. Each blast of this cannon can inflict rank value 20 Armor Piercing Energy damage, and has a +1 RS to hit.

Front Push Bar: this is a shaped composite rod extending from the front of the Eliminator jeep, dampening impacts so it can be used to either push other vehicles, or ram them in a pinch. The Eradicator's front push bar is made from m.v. 40 materials.

Roll Cage: the driver's seat of the Eliminator jeep is protected by a specially coated and padded roll cage. This provides +2 RS Protection against damage caused by a roll or a crash, by deflecting the energy from such events away from the driver.

Wasp Missiles: hidden in a compartment beneath the coil gun station, this weapon can only be used when that unit is detached from the Eliminator jeep. It fires up to six small surface to air missiles, projectiles that inflict +1 RS damage for each doubling of missiles used:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 100
Durability
RV 10
Damage
RV 30 Slashing (fragmentary)

Coil Gun Station:

While the other half of the Eliminator is mobile under its own power, the coil gun station is not. It is designed to be planted in a given area (or in the Future Fortress) to provide stationary fire support, against either land or air-based targets. It has these abilities:

Coil Cannon: unlike the other 'guns' on the Eliminator, the coil cannon can pivot up and down. It is a twinned 20mm cannon, which can be fired to inflict rank value 20 Piercing damage in a short burst, or can inflict +1 RS when fired continuously.

Corporeal Gestalt: while the gun station can provide good fire support all by itself, it is primarily designed to mesh with the rest of the Battle Force 2000's technology by forming part of its Future Fortress, contributing the coil gun to its defense (rank value 20 gestalt).

Sensor Suite: the Eliminator gun station is equipped with a powerful radar array, which allows its operator to track targets in its combat zone with rank value 30 ability. Since the coil cannon has a 360 degree firing radius, it lets its operator easily command a battle field.
