the Shark 9000

While he may prefer the Killer WHALE while engaging in coastal battles against Cobra, Cutter finds the Shark 9000 to be the next best thing. It's a high-speed patrol boat with multiple machine gun mounts and even a torpedo bay. But wait, there's more!

The Shark 9000 is a boat, but its high speed prop can actually move the vehicle on land if necessary, acting as something akin to an unducted propeller for short periods of time, and has an enhanced hull to support this operation. The Shark 9000 has these vehicular characteristics:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 10
Durability
RV 20
Protection
RV 6

Communications Array: the Shark 9000 is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for rank value 10 communications power (with a 25 mile range), that features rank value 30 signal encryption.

Machine Gun Turrets: on each side of the Shark 9000's aft deck are two machine gun turrets. These rotary-barrel guns can discharge a short burst of rounds to inflict rank value 20 Piercing damage, or be fired continuously to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage.

Reinforced Hull: the Shark 9000 has a material value of 20, but its hull is boosted by +2 RS to allow for limited run-time on land if necessary! It also provides its occupants rank value 6 Protection from attack, if they're not hanging onto the sides.

Shark-pedo Launcher: the Shark 9000 is armed with a dual torpedo launcher. Each of the projectiles it fires can inflict the damage listed below, but if two 'shark-pedoes' are launched (and hit) a target simultaneously, they inflict +1 RS damage. They behave as follows:

Handling
RV 10
Velocity
RV 40
Durability
RV 10
Damage
RV 30 Slashing (fragmentary)

Water Cannon: the Shark 9000's less-than-lethal weapon is an immense water cannon, mounted atop its flying bridge. This weapon is fueled by either the water below or a reserve water tank, and can bring up to rank value 30 Force to bear on a person or vehicle.
