the Arctic Blast

Small and fast, the Arctic Blast essentially consists of a sled driven by two oversized, all-weather tires. It's got a veritable arsenal of guns loaded on top, along with several surface-to-surface missiles, making it a fun ride for any GI Joe. It has these characteristics:

Chain Gang Guns (a): the driver of the Arctic Blast can wield these twinned Gatling cannons, mounted on the front of the vehicle. They can discharge a short burst of lead to inflict one's Agility +7 in damage, or be fired continuously to inflict their Agility +8 in damage.

Communications Array (i): the Arctic Blast is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system, allowing for constant team communications. It provides intensity 5 radio transception (25 mile range) with intensity 10 signal encryption.

Cool Cruiser Missiles (i): mounted aside the main ski surface on the Arctic Blast, along the front, are these two projectiles. They are surface-to-surface missiles which inflict intensity 11 damage each, and if both strike a single target, will inflict an additional +1 damage.

Laser Blast Light Rig (i): though not actually lasers, these are three powerful halogen lights rigged up in tandem atop the Arctic Blast. They can illuminate the area with intensity 10 ability, and may be used in a surprise maneuver as a blinding attack.

Machine Guns (a): the rear of the Arctic Blast is equipped with two separate, twinned 7.62mm machine gun mounts, one provided for each potential passenger. They can be fired to inflict the gunner's Agility +6 damage in a short burst, raised to +7 when fired fully automatic.

Personnel Platforms (Passengers): the rear of the Arctic Blast has room for two hangers-on, via two platforms situated behind its driver's seat. Though they gain no protection from riding in the back, each passenger on the Arctic Blast can use one of its machine gun mounts.

Propulsion (a): as was stated above, the Arctic Blast is pretty darn fast. The thing can move at up to ninety miles per hour on relatively flat terrain (intensity 3 propulsion), though considerably slower on more rugged routes.

Rugged Construction (s): the Arctic Blast is built tough, if not necessarily Ford ™ tough. The vehicle has an effective material strength of 10, and offers its driver (though no other occupants) intensity 8, or +2, protection from injury.

Roll Cage (s): since its particular design practically lends itself to roll-overs now and then, the Arctic Blast is equipped with a roll cage. It bolsters the the intensity of protection offered its operator (though not its passengers) by 4, or +1, regarding damage caused by a roll or crash.
