the Night Landing Craft

The Night Landing Craft is a small, sea-based weapons platform built around a sturdy inflatable raft. This vehicle, first put into service in 2001, is a green and black affair (the black bits being the raft, and the green being the add-ons), and has these dynamic characteristics:

Communications Array: the Night Landing Craft is equipped with a 'super-frequency', frequency-wobbler radio system (and has dual transceiver antennas). This makes for rank value 10 communications power (with a 25 mile range), that features rank value 30 signal encryption.

Harpoon Launcher: mounted on the starboard (right) side of the Night Landing Craft, this weapon is great for latching onto enemy craft - or spearing an unlucky sailor. It inflicts rank value 20 Slashing damage, and can pierce objects of up to m.v. 40.

Recovery Crane: this front-mounted hook, with fifty feet of steel cable attached, can be used by the Night Landing Craft's pilot to drag sinking and/or abandoned craft along for the ride. The cable can pull up to ten tons before snapping (effective Brawn value of 40).

Sensor Suite: the Night Landing Craft is equipped with a fully functional, military-grade Global Positioning System receiver, as well as a wind gauge. This gear allows Cutter (or whoever else is piloting the ship) to navigate with pinpoint precision in the course of a mission.

Torpedo Launcher: on the port (left) side of the Night Landing Craft is a one-shot torpedo launcher. While it can only be used once per mission, this weapon is usually enough to sink smaller craft. These sonar-guided torpedoes have these vehicular traits:

Ultra-Candescent Lamps: this trio of lamps, mounted on the Night Landing Craft's windshield, are powerful light casting implements capable of producing rank value 30 illumination. This helps to deal with night operations, and can be used in an improvised blinding attack.
