Destro's Despoiler

When he decided to form his very own army, Destro felt that he needed a vehicle which would serve as a counterpart to Serpentor's Air Chariot. He's the literal face of the Iron Grenadiers, after all, so he needs to be highly visible while active in the field!

To this end, he has designed and manufactured several Despoilers, small open-cockpit aircraft that can take off and land vertically, and can fly with almost reckless speed once aloft. Built with the latest in MARS technology, Destro's Despoiler has these characteristics:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 40
Durability
RV 30
Protection
RV 10

Body Armor: the Despoiler is built tough. While it is small and a relatively easy target when using its VTOL capability, the Despoiler's brick-like frame features a material value of 30, which provides Destro (or any other pilot) rank value 10 Protection.

Communications Suite: the better to command the Iron Grenadiers, Destro's Despoiler is equipped with top of the line communications gear. It functions with rank value 20 ability, having a one hundred mile maximum range, and features signal encryption of rank value 30 complexity.

Deluge I Missiles: these Destro-O84 projectiles can function as either air-to-air or air-to-surface missiles, targeting enemy aircraft or fortifications! They inflict the listed damage singly, but increase this by +1 RS if both strike their target simultaneously:

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

Flight: once it is aloft, thanks to its VTOL capability, the Despoiler can fire up its jet turbines and make good time. It can fly at any speed up to two hundred and seventy two miles per hour, giving it an effective flight rank value of 40 (as is indicated above).

Levitation: using twin ducted fans as directional thrust rotors, the Despoiler can ascend from the ground to almost any altitude with an atmosphere to support it - though it usually sticks low to the ground, in the event that it is shot down (rank value 30 levitation).

Rabid Cannons: these twinned 20mm cannons are mounted on the front of Destro's Despoiler, hitting whatever the vehicle is facing. They inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage when firing a short burst, or rank value 40 Piercing damage when firing continuously.
