the Attack Cruiser

The Attack Cruiser is a small, off-road vehicle that the GI Joe team can use to scout out the enemy - and obliterate them! It is armed with numerous guns, as well as a missile launcher and a versatile 'glider bomb' unmanned aerial vehicle.

The Attack Cruiser's operators can use it to fly reconnaisance missions over Cobra positions - or if necessary, crash it into them to eliminate their foes spectacularly! The Attack Cruiser is mighty indeed, and possesses these vehicular characteristics:

Electronic Countermeasures Station: the rear of the Attack Cruiser is equipped with a powerful electronics scrambling package. This device is excellent at disrupting the function of radiowave-based systems, and can do so with Excellent (20) power.

Glider Bomb: this unmanned aerial vehicle can be launched from the back of the Attack Cruiser to surveil any given area. It has a 200 mile range, and can also be used as a guided missile by its operator when necessary. The Glider Bomb has these capabilities:

Twinned Machine Guns: each side of the Attack Cruiser features a twinned set of machine guns. 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.
