the Rapid Runner

Unlike most B.T.R. vehicles, the Rapid Runner doesn't actually have two separate configurations. It technically has a 'Sea Skimmer' and 'Hover-Glider' mode, but switching from one to the other doesn't involve reassembling the rather small vehicle on the fly.

The Rapid Runner is essentially a small flying board, which can be used to either hover or to fly perpendicular to the surface, depending on its operator's needs (and hence the two 'modes' described above). The Rapid Runner has these vehicular details:

Handling
RV 10
Velocity
RV 6
Durability
RV 20
Protection
RV 0

Communications Gear: the Rapid Runner is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system (and dual transceiver antennas). It has rank value 20 communications power (with a 100 mile range) that has rank value 30 signal encryption.

Flight / Levitation: the Rapid Runner, unlike most B.T.R. vehicles, only changes modes - not its actual, physical configuration. It can fly in its Sea Skimmer mode at rank value 6 speeds (81.81 m.p.h.), or hover in its Hover-Glider mode at any lesser speed, including rank value 0.

Missile Launcher: the Rapid Runner's sole armament in either mode is its oversized (compared to the rest of the vehicle) missile launcher. It fires projectiles that possess the following vehicular characteristics, though it only has two total per load:

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