the Adder

A small, mobile weapons platform, the Adder allows a single Cobra operative to deploy, target, and fire powerful, surface-to-surface missiles. Sporting a long, thin profile, the Adder is just wide enough to accommodate its driver, but long enough to keep them out of its missiles' thrust.

Available in Cobra's trademark, dark blue coloration, the Adder features a six-wheeled chassis, its four rear tires acting to support and stabilize its destructive payload both before and during its launch. Cobra's Adder has the following capabilities built-in:

Handling
RV 6
Velocity
RV 10
Durability
RV 20
Protection
RV 4

Command Link: this dual-purpose radio transceiver allows the Adder's operator to update its missiles' trajectory on the fly, should it be necessary. It also allows for rank value 10 communications, having a 25 mile range, that benefits from rank value 20 encryption.

Phased Array Radar: the better to track its various targets as they move to and fro, ostensibly to avoid being struck by its projectiles, the Adder is equipped with a powerful, phased array radar. It works with rank value 10 ability, tracking surface-bound targets within 25 miles.

Quick-Delivery Tires: all six of the Adder's wheels are reinforced against bullets and other puncture damage, ensuring it can reach a launch site even under enemy fire. Its self-sealing tires benefit from 4 RS of Damage Reduction, at least where Piercing damage is concerned.

White Heat IIs: the sole armament on the Adder, its two White Heat II surface-to-surface missiles allow its operator to effectively combat enemy armor and installations. Inflicting +1 RS damage if both strike a target simultaneously, White Heat IIs SSMs function as follows:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 50
Durability
RV 20
Damage
RV 40 Slashing (fragmentary)
