the Parasite

The Parasite is a heavily armored vehicle primarily intended for troop transport. It can easily contain six Cobra operatives within, who are well-protected from external assault of any stripe, along with ten clinging to the vehicle from outside, and the driver / gunner.

It is a long, deep ride that is bright orange in color, with purple trim here and there. While its nuclear coloration may seem likely to draw enemy fire towards it, the Parasite is armed heavily enough that little can stand in its way without being completely obliterated!

Armored Compartment: while the Parasite has enough exterior real estate to move eleven additional Cobras, the vehicle's primary transport compartment is within its heart. It can hold up to six Cobras, who benefit from the vehicle's full Protection rating while inside.

Chain Gun: mounted on the rear of the Parasite, this weapon can rotate in a full three hundred and sixty degrees. It can fire a short burst of ammunition to inflict Excellent (20) Shooting damage, or be fired continuously to inflict Remarkable (30) Shooting damage.

Chin Cannons: these four laser projectors, two on each side of the Parasite, are mounted beneath its laser turret. They can only hit what is directly in front of the vehicle, but can inflict a whopping Remarkable (30) Armor Piercing Energy damage upon each successful hit.

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

Linked Laser Turret: the front of the Parasite is dominated by this turret, an extension of its driver compartment. It can rotate and elevate, its four linked laser projectors firing in tandem to inflict Remarkable (30) Armor Piercing Energy damage with every deadly barrage.

Mega-Blast Catapult: mounted atop the Parasite is a bomb-chucking catapult! It can reliably strike targets anywhere within ten areas of the vehicle, its projectiles exploding on impact to inflict Incredible (40) Edged Attack damage to all uncovered targets within their detonation area.

Passenger Capability: though armed to a ridiculous degree, the Parasite's primary purpose is troop transportation. In addition to its driver / gunner, the Parasite can carry ten folks on its running boards, as well as four within its specially armored interior compartment.
