the Pirahna

A complement to Cobra's proven Moray, the Pirahna shares its color scheme and most of its offensive capabilities. It just comes in a much smaller package, being a one-man combat speedboat, and is much cheaper for Cobra to produce. It has these vehicular characteristics:

Cobra-band Radio: Cobra gear uses a communication system of its own, not beholden to conventional broadcast standards. The Pirahna in particular has a transceiver which operates with Good (10) range (25 miles), and benefits from Excellent (20) ranked signal encryption as well.

Concussion Missiles: there are four of these surface-to-surface projectiles mounted on the Pirahna, two on its rear spoiler and two beneath the craft. They can readily hit anything in front of the vehicle, and inflict +1 CS damage for each doubling of them that hit at once:

P
Remarkable (30) Edged Attack (fragmentary)

Depth Charges: the Pirahna is equipped with two depth charge launchers, allowing it to strike at foes deep beneath it. These canisters can explode on contact to inflict Incredible (40) Edged Attack (fragmentary) damage to whatever they hit under the Pirahna.

Staal Guns: there are two of these pivoting weapons mounted on the Pirahna, situated on each side of its cockpit. They can each fire a short burst of ammunition to inflict Excellent (20) Shooting damage, or be fired continuously to inflict Remarkable (30) Shooting damage.

Torpedoes: these two side-mounted projectiles drop into the water and race towards their target when triggered. They can strike opponents on the surface or beneath the waves, and like the Pirahna's concussion missiles, inflict +1 CS damage if both strike at once:
