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 some small measure 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:

C
Ty 6
S
Pr 4
B
Gd 10
P
Pr 4

Communications Gear: the Manta Ray is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for Poor (4) communications power (with a 25 mile range) that has 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
Ex 20
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.
