GI Joe's Night Fox is a normal human, according to a strict adherence to the definition of such, lacking special powers of any variety. However, the man is a Navy SEAL who has numerous combat skills, which he combines with government-issue hardware to devastating effect!
Limitations / Enhancements:
the AWE Striker: though not the original driver of this versatile off-road vehicle, Night Fox has truly made the All Weather / Environment Striker his own - whether referring to either the 2010 or 2015 models! The AWE Striker is featured in its very own vehicular entry.
Helmet: since he's usually the target of enemy fire while on the job, Night Fox always wears a helmet - whether or not he's piloting an AWE Striker variant. This protective headgear provides him rank value 10 protection against physical attacks striking him in the cranium.
Knife: since it's such an invaluable tool, Night Fox always has blade with him at all times. Made from m.v. 30 materials, Night Fox can either use this implement to cut through items of like m.v., or to inflict Slashing damage in melee combat.
M-60 Machine Gun: using this hog, Night Fox can discharge one round to inflict rank value 10 Piercing damage, a short burst of ammunition to inflict rank value 20 Piercing damage, or fire it continuously to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage.
Monocular: attached to his helemt, this ocular aid greatly expands Night Fox's visual range. When he flips it down, the distance with which he can see distant objects without penalty is increased as if he possessed rank value 2 telescopic vision (two miles).
Shotgun: his secondary weapon, Night Fox may fire birdshot from this weapon to inflict rank value 6 Piercing damage to foes in a sixty-degree arc, buckshot to inflict rank value 10 Piercing damage to adjacent foes, or slugs to inflict rank value 20 Piercing damage to one target.
Sidearms: his tertiary weapons, Night Fox always carries twin handguns while on the job. He can discharge one round from either of these weapons to inflict rank value 6 Piercing damage, or a three-round burst of such to inflict rank value 10 Piercing damage.
Boating: a Navy SEAL, Night Fox knows his way around ships of all kinds. He may add a +1 RS to either Coordination or Handling ACTIONs called for while operating (or supporting the operation of such) a water vehicle, whether it be a jet ski, a tug boat, or an aircraft carrier!
Demolitions: a master demolitionist, Night Fox excels at destroying things. This engineering specialty allows Night Fox a +1 RS when determining the best place to plant explosives on a vehicle or structure, the better to spectacularly destroy the target of his ire.
Guns: essential training in a modern military, Night Fox has worked hard to become an adept marksman. He may effectively wield any standard, semi-automatic, or fully automatic rifle or pistol in ranged combat as if his Coordinatoin was +1 RS higher than is listed above.
Martial Arts type B: even when he has nothing in his hands, Night Fox can effectively defend himself in combat. Whether he is punching, kicking, biting, knee smashing, elbow dropping, or anything else, Night Fox may resolve such attempts at his Melee trait +1 RS.
Military / United States: the source of all his skills, Night Fox has received extensive combat training from the United States Navy. As a result, he knows military protocols and procedures like the back of his hand, and can readily work within almost any combat unit.
Vehicular Combat: finally, regardless of what kind of vehicle he's driving, Night Fox can readily use it offensively! He should receive a +1 RS on either Cooridnation or Handling ACTIONs called for when attacking others behind the wheel of a car, boat, or even an aircraft!
As a member of the GI Joe team, albeit one of the newer ones, Night Fox can readily consider that group a reliable contact. After all, the team looks after its own, and each Joe would happily help another with just about anything, should they but ask the favor.
Night Fox's first GI Joe field uniform is comprised of a long sleeved black shirt, khakis trousers, olive drab leather gloves, brown leather boots, black knee pads, an olive drab leather belt, olive drab web gear, and a black balaclava, worn under either a black helmet or olive drab cap.
Armando is a take-charge kind of guy, throwing himself at complex problems without reservation. He doesn't like sitting on his hands, yet won't commit to reckless actions without thinking them through. Highly motivated, he often finds himself an essential part of any team.

Not much about Night Fox's background has been revealed as of yet, aside from the fact that he's a Navy SEAL who was snapped up by the GI Joe team as soon as he was available. And though he's one of the more recent additions to the team, Night Fox brings a whole lot to the table.
Highly skilled in demolitions and vehicular combat, he tends to find himself at the wheel during missions against Cobra, at least when there isn't a more dedicated driver available. In particular, he seems attached to the AWE Striker series of GI Joe vehicles, which he drives regularly.
Whether its the 2010 or 2015 edition of the Striker, the latter of which is called the FOE Striker for some reason, Night Fox is happy to blaze into battle behind the wheel with his fellow Joes. Or, if he isn't driving, he'll get down and dirty with his marksmanship and demolitions fun.
Grenade Launcher: a new addition to his arsenal, Night Fox can use this thing to fire fragmentary grenades that inflict rank value 30 Slashing damage to everything within their target sector. These explosive can reach a target up to three sectors away from Night Fox.
Night Fox's second GI Joe ensemble consists of a long sleeved, camouflage gray shirt worn over a red turtleneck, gray trousers, black leather boots, gloves, and belts, black knee pads, a gray balaclava, gray web gear, a beige neckerchief, and a beige helmet.
