the Mudbuster

The GI Joe team's Mudbuster is another in a long line of their 4WD all-terrain vehicles. This beast comes in a curious cyan coloration, and is armed with a brutal ramming bumper and a launcher which fires missiles or a vehicular grappling hook. The Mudbuster has these characteristics:

Gd 10

In 40

Ex 20
P

Body Armor: the Mudbuster is built tough. It has an armored radiator, a stiffened roll bar, and modular 'monster truck' wheels (complete with self-sealing foam), a total package that provides the vehicle a m.s. of Excellent (20) and Good (10) armor.

Communications Array: the Mudbuster is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for Typical (6) communications power (with a 250 mile range) that has Remarkable (30) ranked signal encryption.

Launcher: the bed of the Mudbuster is armed with a launcher which can rotate in 360 degrees. It can be loaded with a conventional missile payload or an immense grappling hook, which can be used to uproot trees or even pull down small structures!

The hook ties to a winch which can pull with Incredible (40) force, enough to topple some buildings and tip over most vehicles. The missile, on the other hand, inflicts Remarkable (30) fragmentary (Edged Attack) damage to the area it detonates in, and behaves as follows:

C
Ex 20
S
Am 50
B
Ex 20
Damage
Remarkable (30) Edged Attack (fragmentary)

Passenger Space: though it's not huge, the Mudbuster has room for many Joes. It can hold two in its armored cab, one Joe on each side via the running boards, several Joes in the rear cargo space (it is a truck), and at least one hanging onto the rear bumper in a pinch.

Rollbar: supplementing the protection of the Mudbuster's occupants, its rollbar also provides them extra defense against crashing damage. In the event of a crash (likely) or roll, the Mudbuster's occupants gain 1 CS of damage reduction against crash damage.

Smash 'n Bash Bumper: the Mudbuster's huge front bumper is hard - it has a +1 CS m.s. for the purposes of charging-based attacks. Furthermore, it can actually project outwards, striking targets while the vehicle is immobile to inflict Remarkable (30) Blunt Attack damage!
