the Detonator

Designed under the principle that the best defense is a good offense, the Cobra blue Detonator is a heavily armed, long-distance interdiction vehicle. It can strike targets on the ground or in the air, doing so at vast distances with its payload of ICBMs.

Also equipped to deal with much closer enemies, the Detonator has two gun turrets, one on the front and another on the rear, as well as spiked ramming plates if things get up close and personal. The Detonator is equipped with the following vehicular characteristics:

Anti-Aircraft Gun: mounted on the rear left of the Detonator, this twinned machine gun can both swivel and elevate. It can fire a short burst of rounds to inflict Remarkable (30) Shooting damage, or be fired continuously to inflict Incredible (40) Shooting damage.

Cobra-band Radio: Cobra gear uses a communication system of its own, not beholden to conventional broadcast standards. The Detonator in particular has a transceiver which operates with Good (10) range (25 miles), and benefits from Excellent (20) ranked signal encryption.

Dragon-Fire Gun: mounted on the front right of the Detonator, this twinned 50mm cannon can swivel from side to side. It can fire a short burst of rounds to inflict Remarkable (30) Shooting damage, or be fired continuously to inflict Incredible (40) Shooting damage.

Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles: the Detonator is given a payload of three Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs). It can only fire one at a time, requiring a manual reload after each launch, but the Detonator's ICBMs each possess these characteristics:

Monster Truck Tires: the six wheels of the Detonator are oversized, monster truck tires. Self-sealing in nature, they benefit from 2 CS of damage reduction where Shooting and Edged Attack damage is concerned, as well as the Detonator's Body score.

Passenger Space: the Detonator can haul around numerous Cobras in addition to its ICBMs! Its driver compartment has room for three, its middle chamber can hold two, its rear turret can hold one, and up to four more folks can cling to the rear bumper when necessary.

Spikes: both the front and the rear bumpers of the Detonator are equipped with an array of sharpened metal spikes. These are great for dissuading enemy personnel from getting close, and can inflict its current speed +1 CS in Edged Attack damage on impact.
