the Ice Sabre

Another effort in Cobra's cold weather arms race with GI Joe, the Ice Sabre is a treaded vehicle that organization can use to seize territory at or near the earth's poles. Propelled from the rear by a large tread, it can glide over snowy surfaces thanks to twin skis at the front.

One unique feature of the Ice Sabre is its cockpit, which consists of a rotating chamber that holds up to three Cobras at once, allowing the crew to switch duty stations as is necessary in the midst of combat or other activities. Its other features include the following:

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

Flamethrower: this front-mounted weapon allows the Ice Sabre to clear a path through ice and snow it cannot traverse, though it works on personnel as well. This flamethrower inflicts Remarkable (30) 2x SD Energy damage thanks to the burning jelly it projects at its targets.

Gatling Guns: mounted on each side of the Ice Sabre, behind its cockpit, are two rotary-barrelled machine guns. They can rotate and elevate, each inflicting Excellent (20) Shooting damage when firing a short burst, or Remarkable (30) Shooting damage when fired continuously.

Neutronic Missiles: the rear of the Ice Sabre is equipped with a launcher that can hold up to four projectiles at a time. Despite their name, these are conventional rocket-propelled explosives, which increase in damage by +1 CS for each doubling of missiles that hit at once:

Ex 20
S

B

Damage
Rm 30 Edged Attack (fragmentary)

Personnel Stations: ringing the three-person cockpit of the Ice Sabre, these twin platforms allow numerous additional Cobras to cling to the vehicle in a pinch. Each can hold up to three people at a time, allowing up to six hangers-on to ride along with those within.
