As are her fellows in the GI Joe team, Bombstrike is naught but a normal human, having no unique abilities of her own. However, she's very good at what she does, and works hard to fight for the forces of freedom with only conventional military hardware to back her up.
Hindrances / Augmentations:
Machine Gun (a): her primary personal offensive weapon, Bombstrike can fire one round from this weapon to inflict her Agility +4 in damage, a three-round burst to inflict her Agility +5 in damage, or a continuous ammunition discharge to inflict her Agility +6 in damage.
Radio (i): helping her perform her job as a forward air controller, this equipment is far more specialied than a mere Joe-Com. Working at intensity 5, it allows Bombstrike 25 miles of radio transception, and is equipped with intensity 10 signal encryption.
Sidearm (a): her backup piece, Bombstrike can use this weapon when her primary is either impractical or disabled. She can either discharge one round from it to inflict her Agility +4 in damage, or instead fire a semi-automatic spread to inflict her Agility +5 in damage.
Boxing (s): an essential talent she picked up during her basic training, this skill showcases Bombstrike's ability to defend herself while unarmed. When doing so, she may divide her pre-card play action score by two, attempting the second attack as a contingent action.
Detective / Espionage (i): Bombstrike's secondary military specialty involves counterintelligence work. She attended a variety of different schools to master her craft, and gains a reduced difficulty whenever digging into mysteries or pumping others for information.
Guns (a): an essential skill Bombstrike picked up after enlisting, she can fire most modern firearms with ease. Whenever wielding a standard, semi-automatic, or fully automatic rifle or pistol, Bombstrike may do so at one difficulty level lower than is normally necessary.
Marksman (a): Bombstrike is an expert with line-of-sight weaponry, and is able to calculate trajectories and do three-dimensional math in her head. This gives her a reduced difficulty when using mortars, rockets, or correctly pinpointing where aircraft should drop ordnance.
Military / United States (w): as did her two brothers before her, Bombstrike enlisted in the military. She has been very successful at it, and as such Bombstrike can seamlessly integrate herself into almost any military structure, and knows the SOP like the back of her hand.
Sports / Soccer (a): the one talent she picked up outside the military, this skill describes Bombstrike's incredible skill at her passion - the game of soccer. She may reduce the difficulty of actions related to the game, whether playing it or in knowing soccer facts.
As a member of the GI Joe team, Bombstrike can easily rely upon her fellows for assistance should she but ask. This is especially true of her brother Barrel Roll, who has in fact gone out of his way to help Bombstrike when she was abducted by her other brother, Blackout.
Soldier, with a secondary calling of Vengeance: Bombstrike is working hard both to prove herself and to do right by her country - and her dedication shows. Of course, she's also got quite a bone to pick with her brother, Blackout, over his dark deeds.
Bombstrike wears a simple, utilitarian GI Joe uniform. It consists of a brown T-shirt with the GI Joe logo on the chest, green camouflage trousers, gray boots, gloves, and knee pads, overlapping gray belts, and a green backpack to hold her radio gear.
Alyssa is a courageous and dedicated young woman, working hard to rise above her family history - which would be a proud one, save for her idiot brother, Blackout. While she's very competitive, Alyssa knows where to draw the line... unless lives are at stake, that is.

Bombstrike comes from a patriotic family that enjoys military service. Both of her brothers enlisted, focused on becoming GI Joe operatives. Bombstrike followed in their stead, hoping to do as well as they did - but it turned out that Bombstrike would do even better in some regards.
Though one of her brothers became the Joe known as Barrel Roll, the other washed out catastrophically, eventually becoming the Cobra operative Blackout. Hoping to offset the damage Blackout caused her family name, Bombstrike worked even harder to prove herself.
She did, and eventually made it onto the GI Joe team as well. Working as a forward air controller, she is at the forefront of military action, calling down air strikes when necessary to support her team in the field. It was on one such operation that Bombstrike came face to face with Trouble.
This trouble came in the form of her brother, Blackout, who was manning a Cobra facility that Bombstrike and her teammates were assaulting. When the smoke cleared, Bombstrike had vanished without a trace, apparently abducted by Blackout for his own sinister purposes.
Though it took some time, Barrel Roll and several other Joes managed to liberate Bombstrike before Blackout could do anything particularly slimy. Which may've been a good thing, because Bombstrike would've likely taken Blackout apart if only given the smallest of chances.
Reunited with the Joes, Bombstrike was subsequently 'deactivated' along with the rest of the team, when it reformed itself as a small group of special operations soldiers. Placed on reserve, she would only be used in the field when the Joe team needed her specialized skills.
There was only one documented case of this, during Cobra's attempt at world conquest during World War III, a conflict of Cobra's devising. When the GI Joe team narrowly defeated this plan, Cobra Commander and several other leaders of Cobra were finally captured at long last.
As such, the Joes were ramped back up anew, working hard to capture all the terrorists of that group who managed to escape Justice. Naturally, Bombstrike is at the forefront of this charge, having a very, very personal stake in bringing in Blackout and his jerky cohorts in Cobra.
Shotgun Pistols (a): these one-handed shotguns are a recent addition to Bombstrike's field arsenal. While firing them is rough on the wrists, there's no denying the room-clearing power this pair of firearms carries, which is just like a regular shotgun's.
In other words, Bombstrike can fire birdshot from them to inflict her Agility +4 in damage in a sixty-degree arc, buckshot to inflict her Agility +5 in damage to adjacent targets, or slugs to inflict her Agility +6 in damage to a singular target.
UAV (i): greatly expanding the sheer range of her counterintelligence activities, this unmanned aerial vehicle can be used to spy with a hundred-mile radius of Bombstrike. Though unarmed, unless used to ram something, this flying camera can fly at intensity 8 speeds.
Bombstrike's second field uniform is a variation on her first. It includes a black turtleneck sweater beneath a brown, GI Joe-branded vest, green camouflage trousers, gray leather boots and gloves, grass green knee pads, and overlapping green and black leather belts.
