the Manta Ray

The Manta Ray is a small, inflatable 'shark proof' commando raft, that is fitted with several advanced combat features. It sports an upper deck that rests atop the raft proper, which provides its occupants a minor amount of protection from small arms fire.

Of course, this platform also allows for the addition of a missile launcher! The Manta Ray has these characteristics:

Communications Gear: the Manta Ray is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for Good (10) communications power (with a 25 mile range), that features Remarkable (30) ranked signal encryption.

Missile Launcher: the sole armament on the Manta Ray, this weapon allows it to go toe to toe with much larger craft - assuming they go down in the first hit. It can only fire one projectile at a time, but there are two spares mounted on the sides of the Manta Ray:

C
Ex 20
S
Am 50
B

Damage
Remarkable (30) Edged Attack (fragmentary)

Rugged Construction: the Manta Ray is built rather tough for an inflatable raft. Once inflated, it supports a steel deck that offers its riders Poor (4) Protection from incoming attack. Of course, the whole thing is 'shark proof', since the raft is puncture-resistant.
