the Ice Snake

First fielded in 1993, the Ice Snake is a small cold-weather vehicle produced by Cobra. It can comfortably seat two operatives within its cockpit, with room for two more hangers-on in the rear. It features skis in the front and all-terrain wheels in the rear.

Smaller than most of Cobra's polar equipment, the snow white Ice Snake makes up for missing bulk with considerable mobility, moving troops here and there over the snow and ice with relatively little expense. The Ice Snake possesses the following vehicular characteristics:

Body Armor (s): while small, the Ice Snake features a compact build that maximizes its durability. It thus possesses an m.s. of 10, but only provides its two occupants intensity 4, or +1, body armor, since they are partially exposed to the outside world.

Cobra-band Radio (i): Cobra gear uses a communication system of its own, not beholden to conventional broadcast standards. The Ice Snake in particular has a transceiver which operates with intensity 5 range (25 miles), and benefits from intensity 9 signal encryption.

Grappling Hook (s): one of the implements its rear launcher can fire, this oversized hook can snag personnel, vehicles, or even structures! It can strike targets within far missile distance of the Ice Snake, either inflicting intensity 10 slashing damage or just hooking onto things.

Missiles (i): the Ice Snake loadout includes two Arctic Assault missiles, which can be fired one at a time from its rear launcher. These projectiles inflict intensity 10 damage to personnel, vehicles, or structures, affecting all within near missile distance equally well.

Passengers: as stated above, the Ice Snake is more than a one-man conveyance. It can comfortably seat two Cobra operatives within, though more could conceivably squeeze in if necessary, and at least two folks can cling desperately to the rear in a pinch.

Propulsion (a): a powerful vehicle despite its diminutive size, the Ice Snake can move! It possesses intensity 3 propulsion, allowing it to achieve speeds of up to 75 miles per hour, which is incredibly fast in the tundra it usually sees action within.

Roll Cage (s): providing intensity 4, or +1, additional protection from damage caused by rolls, this implement also has offensive applications. Its 'jaw snapping' action allows it to inflict intensity 10 slashing damage to targets directly in front of the Ice Snake.
