the Wave Crusher

The Wave Crusher is a small, lightweight water sled that has several armaments, as well as a special surprise. It can actually be reconfigured into a Cobra jet ski, allowing for clandestine operations executed by the Spy Troops. It has these capabilities:

C
Gd 10
S
Ty 6
B
Gd 10
P
Sh 0

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

Of course, that's not all. Helping it to function in its capacity as a Cobra device, the Wave Crusher also has a purloined Cobra-band radio installed as well. This gear works with similar range, but it only has Excellent (20) ranked signal encryption.

Machine Guns: in either mode, the Wave Crusher has access to two linked machine guns. Fired together, these weapons can inflict Excellent (20) Shooting damage when firing short bursts of lead, or Remarkable (30) Shooting damage when firing them continuously.

Missile: accessible only in its water sled mode, the Wave Crusher can fire this singular, surface to surface projectile to inflict Remarkable (30) Edged Attack (fragmentary) damage to whatever it hits. This small missile has these characteristics:

C
Ex 20
S
Am 50
B
Ex 20
Damage
Rm 30 Edged Attack

Shape Change: the principal purpose of the Wave Crusher is to fool Cobra troopers into believing that it is, in fact, one of their own vehicles. It can readily and easily be reconfigured between its GI Joe and Cobra mode, a feat that takes only 5 turns.

2005 Variations

While the original, 2003 edition of Wave Crusher was primarily yellow with blue trim, the 2005 iteration of this vehicle has changed its coloration. While it otherwise functions the same, the newer model is orange with black trim, though its missiles and seat retain their dull gray hue.
