Body Armor: featuring a titanium-reinforced, pivoting canopy, the Rat provides its sole occupant considerable protection from injury. While inside the vehicle, its operator benefits from Good (10) protection against physical assault, -2 CS where energy attacks are concerned.

Chain Guns: the Rat features four linked chain guns, two on each side of the vehicle's cockpit. Though they can only fire straight ahead, they inflict Incredible (40) Shooting damage when firing short bursts, or Amazing (50) Shooting damage when fired in a continuous fashion.

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

Flak Rotors: these offensive devices are designed to stymie aircraft working against the Rat. They can be launched at vehicles in the air as a direct, physical assault, inflicting Remarkable (30) Edged Attack damage when they collide with their targets.

Levitation / Propulsion: featuring jet-powered turbo engines and aerodynamic vortex chargers, the Rat can glide upon a cushion of air! It can merely hover in place or blast forward with up to Good (10) ground speeds, achieving up to sixty miles per hour over clear terrain!

Slicer Blades: the Rat has two of these weapons, mounted under the front corners of the vehicle. These spinning barbs can easily slice and dice softer targets in front of the Rat, whether plant or animal, and inflict Excellent (20) Edged Attack damage on physical contact.
