The Military Utility Vehicle (MUV)

The GI Joe team is always putting new off-road fighting vehicles into action, it seems. It's possible that some of these don't last very long because they're constantly being destroyed in action. Or perhaps the Joes just seek a 'perfect' off road fighting vehicle?

The MUV is the latest in a long string of such vehicles. The MUV, which stands for Military Utility Vehicle, is a desert camouflaged, super-charged Jeep ™ - with a top-mounted machine gun and a bumper perfect for ramming. The MUV possesses these characteristics:

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

Body Armor: the MUV is built tough. It has an armored radiator, a stiffened roll bar, and modular 'monster truck' wheels (complete with self-sealing foam), a total package that provides the vehicle Durability of rank value 20, and Protection of rank value 10 to its occupants.

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

Halogen Lamps: the MUV has two different quartz-halogen headlights, as well as a secondary lamp that can be aimed at somewhere besides the space in front of the vehicle. They all produce rank value 20 illumination, which can fill a sector or (if used with surprise) blind foes.

Machine Guns: the MUV is one of the (very) rare GI Joe vehicles that lacks a missile launcher. Its top-mounted cannon can discharge a short burst of ammunition to inflict rank value 20 Piercing damage, or fire lead continuously to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage.

Passenger Space: though it's not huge, the MUV has room for many Joes. It can hold two in its armored insides, one Joe on each side via the running boards, several Joes in the rear cargo space (one chair, room for more), and at least one hanging onto the rear bumper in a pinch.

Rollbar: supplementing the protection of the MUV's occupants, its rollbar also provides them extra defense against crashing damage. In the event of a crash (likely) or roll, the MUV's occupants gain 1 RS of damage reduction against crash damage.
