The Snow Cat is the G.I. Joe team's primary arctic-environment workhorse. With a 9-liter, 680 horsepower engine, half-track drive and enough firepower to topple an iceberg, it is the perfect vehicle for going where nearly no other comparable machine can go. It has comfortable seating, easy-to-operate controls and the requisite powerful heater. While not the most electronically advanced vehicle in the G.I. Joe motor pool, the Snowcat has shown itself time and again to be one of the most reliable special-service units they have.
The Snowcat weighs 57 tons and has a top speed of 50 MPH with a fully loaded range of 200 miles. It is equipped with four launcher based fire-by-wire Shockwave HE-27 missiles, and two low-pressure ski-mounted Avalanche missiles
