- The Armadillo is a G.I. Joe vehicle.
A small, one-man tank built for high speed and maneuverability. The vehicle, primarily used by the G.I. Joe team, had less powerful armaments then a full-sized tank and was used as a light assault vehicle in areas where anything larger would be inappropriate. It was armed with four 60mm synchronized, variable-range cluster cannons. The Armadillo was first used by the Joes during a battle with Cobra forces at the Arbco Brothers Circus near Staten Island.

Sgt. Slaughter, Any Qualified
The second Armadillo mini-tank was not merely a rehash of the original Armadillo. If anyone knows Sgt. Slaughter, there is a reason why he chose it as one of his strike vehicles for the G.I. Joe special team he formed, the Marauders. Using the speed and size of the original, the new Armadillo is refitted to make lightning raids on enemy outposts but with the ability to inflict more damage.
The Marauders' Armadillo uses the same chassis as the original. As such, it has the same engine capabilities, all-weather track treads, and a rear-end one-man carrier. In place of the original four-turret cannon, LA-44 missile launchers armed with six high-impact XXX-010 missiles launchers have been attached to the sides. Other improvements include a computer-operated radar and communications system, a digital actuator and targeting mechanism for long-range attacks.
