the Razor-blade

The Razor-blade is a small, chromed GI Joe helicopter that is primarily designed as a rescue craft, though it has one weapon just in case. The Razor-blade is small and quick, and is capable of lightning raids against ground-based opponents. It has these vehicular characteristics:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 30
Durability
RV 20
Protection
RV 10

Body Armor: the Razor-blade is built to withstand severe punishment. It has an effective material value of 20 for the purposes of taking damage, and its pilot benefits from a 'rocket proof' canopy, receiving rank value 10 Protection from physical attack.

Communications Array: the Razor-blade is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for rank value 20 communications power (with a 100 mile range), that benefits from rank value 30 signal encryption.

Flight / Levitation: the Razor-blade is a helicopter. This vehicle is designed to hover in place if necessary, or to take off or land without a runway. It can also move very fast horizontally, however, with a top speed of around 180 miles per hour!

Missile Launcher: its sole armament (aside from ramming attacks!), the Razor-blade has a right-mounted missile pod. This box-launcher can store up to four air-to-ground missiles per load, though it only fires one per turn. These missiles have the following vehicular traits:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 50
Durability
RV 20
Damage
RV 30 Slashing (fragmentary)

Rescue Backpack: the Razor-blade itself has no room for passengers. However it is a rescue craft, and a rescue backpack can be mounted on the front of the vehicle, on its skids. This can be used to strap in a Joe (or anyone else) who needs rescuing, allowing them to be carried off.
