the Sand Razor

The Sand Razor is a combat vehicle designed for desert operations. Sparsely armored to maximize its speed, the Razor is best suited for hit-and-run missions in sandy climes, or a fast getaway from some battle or another. The Sand Razor has an m.s. of 10, and these characteristics:

.50 Cal Rotary Cannon (a): the Sand Razor's primary driver-utilized weapon, this forward-pointing beast can discharge a short burst of ammunition to inflict one's Agility +6 in damage, or it can be fired continuously to inflict their Agility +7 in damage.

Communications Suite (i): the Sand Razor is equipped with a radio transceiver system, allowing the driver to send battle-field data to a central command, and then receive new orders in turn. This functions at intensity 5, and has a maximum range of about 25 miles.

Gun Turret (a): in addition to the driver's seat, the Sand Razor comes equipped with a top-mounted, rotating gun turret. This seat offers the high ground in most vehicular fights, though it could make its occupant feel somewhat exposed, what with the lack of protection from the roll bar.

The turret makes up for this lack of defense with staggering offense. It has a rocket launcher (described below) and a 55mm recoilless rifle with 15 shots fully loaded, each of which can be fired to inflict one's Agility +7 in damage with each deadly assault.

Halogen Floodlight (i): the Sand Razor has a large, left-mounted floodlight that it can use to both illuminate an area, and possibly, affect one's aim due to overwhelming glare. This floodlight can produce light of intensity 10, and can easily blind someone temporarily!

Machine Gun (a): this secondary driver-utilized weapon, this automatic weapon can be swiveled 45 degrees from a forward-facing position, and may discharge a short burst of rounds to inflict one's Agility +5 in damage, or be fired continuously to inflict their Agility +6 in damage.

Passengers: though it's primarily built for one- or two-man hit-and-run operations, the Sand Razor has the ability to carry passengers. This is because the Razor has a fold-out panel an extra occupant can use to stand on, a panel that is actually the Razor's second rocket launcher!

Propulsion (a): the Sand Razor drives at intensity 4 speeds during ordinary road conditions (about 105 MPH), though this is reduced to intensity 2 (55 MPH) when driving off-road. Of course, at this reduced rate of travel, the Razor can get almost anywhere!

Rocket Launchers (i): the Sand Razor has two rocket launchers: one in the gun turret and one concealed between the Razor's two left wheels. Both of these launchers fire rockets with fragmentary warheads, rockets which inflict intensity 10 slashing damage each.

Roll Cage (s): though the Sand Razor offers its driver little protection, it does come equipped with a roll cage. This thing will protect the driver (but not a body manning the gun turret) intensity 4, or +1, protection from any damage caused by the vehicle's rolling or crashing.
