the Storm Eagle

Another in a long line of GI Joe fighter Jets, the Storm Eagle represents a watershed in aerial combat. The Storm Eagle does not carry guns of any variety, instead relying primarily on a high-powered laser cannon with which to engage and defeat enemy aircraft.

While it does carry a small brace of missiles to target ground-based opponents, the Storm Eagle solely uses its laser in air-to-air battle. It also possesses an advanced, stealth-shape configuration and an amazing top speed. It has these vehicular characteristics:

Rm 30
Sh Y 200
Ex 20
Gd 10

Body Armor: the Storm Eagle is built to protect its pilot. It has a high impact nose cone along with a reinforced, anti-glare composite canopy. This provides its pilot Good (10) protection from attack, as well as similarly-ranked Screened Senses for their vision.

Communications Gear: the Storm Eagle is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for Remarkable (30) communications power (with a 500 mile range) that features signal encryption of like rank.

Flight: it's primary purpose, the Storm Eagle can fly - and rather quickly, too. It can operate at speeds in excess of Mach 2, which gives it this ability at Shift Y (200) rank. Of course, it often flies slower when engaging targets on the ground.

Infrared Video Surveillance System: the Storm Eagle has the ability to film enemy positions on the ground - even under night-time conditions! It can track targets by their heat, allowing the pilot to 'paint' targets even if visibility is otherwise zero in an area.

Liquid Fire Laser Cannon: this chin-mounted weapon is the only air-to-air offense the Storm Eagle has - or needs. It can be fired to inflict Excellent (20) Armor Piercing Energy damage per lethal blast, and can continue to fire as long as the plane has power / fuel.

Radar: the Storm Eagle is equipped with powerful radar emitters, along with a similarly potent computer capable of interpreting what it 'sees'. It can easily map most ground terrain, and it functions with a Good (10) (fifty mile) range.

Tactical Missiles: the Storm Eagle is armed with four air-to-surface tactical missiles, each of which is designed not for speed but for accuracy - but then, they don't need to be that fast. For each doubling of missiles that hit, these projectiles inflict +1 CS damage:

Ex 20
Am 50
Ex 20
Remarkable (30) Edged Attack (fragmentary)
