60 mm Machine Gun: mounted under the Retaliator's cockpit, this single machine gun can dispense serious damage to vehicles or personnel when necessary. This weapon can be fired to inflict Remarkable (30) Shooting damage with every deadly, fully automatic volley of lead.

Bomb Bay: the Retaliator has a bay that can store up to nine bombs. These powerful explosives detonate to inflict Incredible (40) Edged Attack damage to all uncovered targets within the area they fall into, adding +1 CS damage for every doubling of them used at once.

Capture Claw: this frightening device can be used to display the Retaliator pilot's true flight skills. Consisting of the entire tail section of the Retaliator, this implement can fold down into a claw that may be used to grapple personnel or vehicles with Incredible (40) strength.

Communications Array: the Retaliator is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This provides its pilot Excellent (20) communications (with a 100 mile maximum range), featuring signal encryption of Remarkable (30) complexity.

Magna-Torque Quick Elevation Tow Hook: while its primary role is a combat helicopter, the Retaliator can haul a significant amount of cargo. Treat it as having Incredible (40) Strength for such purposes, though any load over one ton cuts the Retaliator's Control by 2 CS.

Missile Launchers: the Retaliator has two computer-enhanced launch bays, one on each side of the cockpit. These launchers each have two missiles, and the Retaliator's pilot can fire one to inflict the damage indicated below, adding +1 CS for each doubling of such that hit at once:

Radar: allowing offensive and defensive functions, this unit can track objects within the Retaliator's air space with Excellent (20) ability. Furthermore, it assists in acquiring 'target locks' on enemy aircraft that give the pilot a +1 CS to hit with missile attacks.
