the Hoverstrike

The Hoverstrike is a relatively small, wedge-shaped green hovercraft the GI Joe team can use to combat Cobra in almost any environment, on land or sea! It is propelled on a cushion of air by two large vectored turbo fans situated aside the craft's one-person piloting platform.

Of course, what is a GI Joe vehicle without missile launchers! The Hoverstrike has two of these, one mounted in front of each of its vectored propulsion fans, and carries several reloads if the pilot (usually Mirage) finds the time. The Hoverstrike has these characteristics:

Body Armor: the frame of the Hoverstrike is constructed from rank value 30 strength materials, giving it an effective m.v. of rank value 20. Its skirts are a bit less durable, however, only possessing a m.v. of 10, though they're rather rugged overall.

Communications Array: the Hoverstrike is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for rank value 10 transception (with a 25 mile range), that features rank value 30 signal encryption.

Missile Launchers: though it lacks actual guns, the Hoverstrike is equipped with not one, but two missile launchers - each in front of one of its vectored thrust fans. These launchers can be fired simultaneously to inflict +1 RS damage, as compared to the below:

Propulsion: the Hoverstrike floats a short distance over the ground, and can move in any direction on the surface thanks to its vectored turbo fans. It can glide along the water at rank value 6 speeds (40.91 MPH), though ground travel is slightly slower (value 4 speed, or 27.27 MPH).
