If ever there was a G.I. Joe land vehicle that could be appreciated for its inherent simplicity, it would have to be the R.A.M. From all appearances, it aspires to be no more than a motorcycle until you notice the Gatling gun mounted on its side. And in the hands of a capable G.I. Joe driver, a truly dangerous weapon.

Features

The R.A.M.'s motorcycle unit has a weight of 390 lbs. while the gun pod takes a whopping 870 lbs. full load. The 1000cc twin cam engine with turbo fuel injector enables it to reach speeds up to 95mph on full load and a range of 450 miles. Not to be outdone by the unknown, the driver is provided with a electronic radar unit built in to the front chassis. The 20mm Gatling gun is a Vulcan series provided with 1,200 rounds of ammunition.
