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-man 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 a large amount of reloads if the pilot (usually Mirage) finds the time. The Hoverstrike has these vehicular characteristics:

Body Armor (s): the frame of the Hoverstrike is constructed from strength 12 materials, giving it an effective m.s. of 10. Its skirts are a bit less durable however, only possessing a m.s. of 8, though they're rather rugged overall.

Communications Array (i): the Hoverstrike is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system, allowing for constant team communications. This makes for intensity 5 comm power (with a 100 mile range) that has intensity 10 signal encryption.

Missile Launchers (i): 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 to inflict intensity 10 fragmentary damage, +1 if both are used simultaneously.

Propulsion (a): 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 intensity 2 speeds (45 m.p.h.), though ground travel is slightly slower (intensity 1, or 30 m.p.h.).
