Customer Score: 41% (rate)
Availability: Currently Unavailable!
Capabilities: Driving and maintaining the Scorpion light tank, firing the 76mm main gun (smoke shells only), Skip does some sketches of female nudes with a barbarian/amazonian theme and he has those for sale if you're interested, Randy used to be a roadie for Moody Blues so he knows a thing or two about light shows. Our tank is called Red Sonja and it can drive over pretty high walls.
Equipment: Scorpion tank from 1977 with a 76mm gun (sorry red smoke shells only) and a transmission that is going so we can only drive it in first.

Also bring a stereo, plenty of CDs, a PSP, all the protein bars and crisps we will need for a trip as long as you provide water, pints, and potted cheese. And of course Sunny D to drink.
Special Training/Notes: Skip can curse a bit in cymaer or translate some things if he can get to the internet to check out a word or two.Both Skip and Randy signed on with the Whales 160th territorial army in the 1980s and they are rated "average" in gun shooting and "needs improvement" in hand-to-hand combat. They don't need any improvement at stealing stockpiled tanks from the reserve armory.
|Circumstance of Contract Liquidation:|
Drove the tank up to the Bank of England's Leeds office to assist in the raid on the imprint floor. Smashed open the doors after a bit of trouble from the shifter and fired smoke bombs at a few of the Bank of England workers who were slow to get away. No one was harmed. Provided cover while the 18 ton penny press was loaded onto a towed flatbed trailer. Became disabled attempting to tow the trailer up a hill. The press was moved to a truck, but the tank would not start. Skip placed it in neutral and he and Randy attempted to push it up the hill. Unfortunately, the tank rolled (more)
