the Road Toad

Sometimes the Joes suffer serious damage to one of their vehicles, and need a heavy duty tool to pull it out of whatever devastated battle front it was left inoperable in. Whenever this happens and the vehicle is salvageable, the Joes break out the Road Toad.

The Road Toad is itself a towable platform with a heavy duty winch attached, which allows it to pull a damaged vehicle onto itself so that both can be hauled to safety. It is heavily armed as well, in the event that the enemy is still sniffing around.

The Road Toad has the following, built-in capabilities:

Buzz Missiles: mounted on the side of the Road Toad's puncher cannons, these two wire-guided micro-missiles add a bit of extra 'punch' when under heavy fire. They're small but effective, inflicting +1 RS damage if both are fired at a foe simultaneously:

RV 20
RV 50
RV 20
RV 20 Slashing (fragmentary)

Passenger Platforms: the Road Toad has one seat - for the gunner / winch operator. However, several other people can ride along with it, assuming they hold on tight. There's room for two Joes on the sides of the Road Toad, and two on the rear (as long as it's not towing anything).

Puncher Cannons: these dual 25mm guns are the Road Toad's main offense, recoilless cannons its operator can use should the Road Toad come under fire. They can fire short bursts for rank value 20 Piercing damage, or fire continuously to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage.

Stump Puller Winch: this 250 BHP motor is powerful enough to haul most of the Joes' ground vehicles onto the Road Toad - not counting huge rides like the Mobile Command Center or the Defiant's crawler - though some of the heavier ones will take longer to drag on.
