The Quinjet

The next super-vehicle up is the The Avengers' Quinjet. The Quinjet first debuted in The Avengers #61 (February 1969). The Wakanda Design Group headed by Black Panther (T'Challa) designed and built the first Quinjet. Later models were built for the Avengers by Stark Enterprises at Iron Man's (Tony Stark's) request.

Five turbojet engines allow the Quinjet to reach Mach 2.1. In addition to standard flight mode, the Quinjet is capable of operating in space and deep-sea environments. It also has vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capability. Several flight-ready Quinjets are stored in the Avengers' Mansion and Stark Tower. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now have been assigned Quinjets as well. Quinjets also have a reputation in the comics of being destroyed in action shortly after they first appear.

The Quinjet is built using the ICONS Vehicle and Chase rules found in every issue of Justice Wheels from Fainting Goat Games and Dr. Axiom's ICONS Benchmarks.
