The Snow Cat is not the most electronically advanced vehicle in the G.I. Joe arsenal. In fact, it still relies more on plain old diesel engine power to get it through its mission. The control panels mostly connect to the missile weaponry and heating system and not much else. Maneuvering the machine is akin to driving a small truck. That's it. However, what it lacks in high-tech gadgetry, it more than makes up for dependability.
The Snow Cat is powered by a 9-liter 680 horsepower engine. It can reach up to 50mph on a cross country track and a range of up to 200 miles in full load. The off-road tires have one of the best traction that enable it to get through mud and snow. The four-wheel half-track would provide the rest of the balance. The front cab holds two persons, three if need be. There are several platforms around the vehicle that would enable it to carry and transport more men.
Its primary armament consists of the four Shockwave HE-27 missiles which are fired from a launcher on top of its back and two low-pressure ski-mounted Avalanche missiles.
