If the powers-that-be had ever shown any faith in G.I. Joe, that would have to be the Defiant. No other piece of equipment could trump the justification having a space shuttle for military operations. The threat of Cobra knows no bounds. The Joes must be ready even if it takes them beyond the skies... to the stars.
The Defiant is a large shuttle complex consisting of a moving gantry, the Crawler, that is able to elevate and launch the shuttles from any locationy. The shuttles consist of a booster and a smaller shuttle that sits atop it.
