the Imp

The Imp is a squat, compact assault vehicle. Painted crimson and tracked to traverse almost any terrain, the Imp gives the impression of an almost demonic presence in the field. Heavily armed and armored, it can readily stymie any ground forces, and possesses the following features:

Ambush Missiles: the primary weapons of the Imp, its three surface-to-surface Ambush missiles can be fired at various angles from its rear-mounted, hydraulic launching arm. The Ambush missiles can be fired singly or all at once, and feature the following capabilities:

C
Ex 20
S
Am 50
B
Ex 20
Damage
In 40 Edged Attack (fragmentary)

* Infrared Targeting: the Heat Detective H10-57 heat-seeking guidance system on the Imp's Ambush missiles allow them to lock onto a specific infrared signature, making them strike with the above Control rating, doing so at a +1 CS if their target is particularly hot.

* Mines: each Ambush missile can deploy up to twenty-four mines on the way to its target, once launched, muddying the terrain between it and its destination with explosives aplenty. These pressure-sensitive mines each inflict Excellent (20) Edged Attack (fragmentary) damage.

* Radiowave Generation: in addition to their explosive capability, the Ambush missiles feature a powerful electronic countermeasure, in the form of its broad radio jamming capability. This function works against enemy radar and communications with Excellent (20) power.

Communications Array: like most Cobra vehicles, the Imp features a radio transceiver that allows its driver to keep in touch with his or her fellows. This gear allows a maximum communication range of twenty five miles (Good (10) range), with Excellent (20) signal security.

Short-Throw Machine Gun: mounted immediately before its driver's seat, this .50 cal spring-mounted machine gun can fire a short burst of ammunition to inflict Excellent (20) Shooting damage, or fire continously to inflict Remarkable (30) Shooting damage.
