the Rock Crusher

The Rock Crusher is a small, tan and brown GI Joe vehicle that can be deployed in one of two different configurations, each of which emulates another Joe vehicle which is currently in circulation. Its operator can switch between the two with just a few minutes of assembly.

The assault quad mode of the Rock Crusher is designed to function just like the Assault Quad vehicle the Joes fielded starting in 2002. It's not the fastest ride, but it has decent handling for something its size, as well as being more useful for off-road applications.

The Rock Crusher's land luge mode, on the other hand, alters both of these qualities to the extreme. It can be driven much faster, gaining about fifty percent more speed, but it's a much more difficult vehicle to control, and is most useful on roads.

Either way, the Rock Crusher possesses these vehicular characteristics and capabilities overall:

Handling
RV 10 *
Velocity
RV 10 *
Durability
RV 10
Protection
RV 2

* The listed Handling and Velocity ratings are for the Rock Crusher in its assault quad mode. When converted into a land luge, it gains +2 RS of Velocity (81.81 MPH) in exchange for a -2 RS of Handling (it's kind of hard to steer in this configuration, actually).

Autocannons: in either mode, the Rock Crusher has access to two rotary-barrel machine guns. These linked cannons can both fire a short burst of ammunition to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage, raised to rank value 40 Piercing damage when fired continuously.

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

Missile Launcher: the Rock Crusher is armed with a singular missile launcher, which is mounted either on the front or the rear of the vehicle, depending on its current configuration. The projectiles it launches are equipped with these vehicular characteristics:

Handling
RV 20
Velocity
RV 50
Durability
RV 20
Damage
RV 30 Slashing (fragmentary)

Shape Change: the primary design feature of all BTR devices, the Rock Crusher can serve as one of two different vehicles, depending on its operator's needs. With just a few moments of work in the field, said operator can convert it between assault quad and land luge modes.
