M.A.S.K. Technologies:

The M.A.S.K. Computer is housed at both Matt Trakker's mansion and at Boulder Hill. Trakker often uses voice commands to ask the computer to analyse objects and photographs and has programmed the computer to select the most suitable M.A.S.K. agents for each mission.

Occasionally, Trakker uses a portable version housed in a suitcase that has the same capabilities.

The computer is also connected to all MASK vehicles. So Matt uses it regularly in Thunderhawk to let the computer choose the best agents for the mission.

The M.A.S.K.Transport Jet is an enormous transport plane used by M.A.S.K. to fly their vehicles to other locations.

In the episode Caesar's Sword, Gloria Baker is seen piloting the Transport Jet with Hondo MacLean as her co-pilot.

In the episode Green Nightmare, Alex Sector and Dusty Hayes are at the controls, with Brad Turner serving as navigator. Alex and Dusty are again seen piloting the vehicle in the episode The Everglades Oddity, while Ace Riker, who is an ex-test pilot, looks over their shoulders.

Alex is once more seen piloting the jet in The Creeping Terror, with Jacques LaFleur as co-pilot and Matt & Scott Trakker in passenger seats while T-Bob is blow drying Scott's hair.

In the episode Plunder of Glowworm Grotto, the pilot is Bruce Sato, with Dusty once again serving as co-pilot and Gloria in the navigators position. However, Bruce boards Julio Lopez's vehicle Firefly and exits the Transport Jet while still in flight. Then Dusty saves Bruce's life using his Backlash mask from inside the Jet's hangar bay door. Thus leaving Gloria allone to pilot the vehicle.

In several episodes, such as Curse of Solomon's Gorge; The Lost Fleet and Follow the Rainbow the Transport Jet lifts off immediately after dispatching the M.A.S.K. vehicles and agents with no indication who could be flying it.

In the episode Panda Power, an unidentified pilot drives a forklift carrying a crate out of the transport, deposits the crate on the ground and leaves.

In the episode Dragonfire, Scott Trakker mistakingly calls the Transport Jet a "hovercraft".

In the episode Stone Trees, the Transport Jet is unable to land in the Canadian forest, so Condor flies out and Volcano dives off the ramp with a parachute. It is unclear if Volcano is being operated by remote control or has an unseen driver since Jacques LaFleur was already on location. It is also unclear who piloted the jet during this mission.

Similarly, in The Scarlet Empress, Raven exits the Jet while it still in the air and the transport pilot is never referenced.

In the episode 'Treasure of the Nazca Plain, Bruce Sato is manning a communication station aboard the jet with Brad Turner and Julio Lopez looking over his shoulder. Who is piloting at this time remains unknown.

In Gate of Darkness, Brad Turner seves as pilot and Buddy Hawks is the navigator. Matt requests that Brad makes a video scan of the Gate of Darkness using a multi-headed camera that deploys from the bottom of the jet. Matt then orders Brad and Dusty to do a Trans-Drop, ejecting their vehicles Condor and Firecracker from the plane while it hovers in mid-air.

Two of the same projectors used as a camera in Gate of Darkness are used to create a magnetic barrier over a ship in The Manakara Giant. Once again, the M.A.S.K. vehicles, in this case Thunderhawk and Raven exit the hovering Transport jet.

In Raiders of the Orient Express, Slingshot, Condor and Thunderhawk are seen boarding the Transport Jet. It remains unknown who opens the landing doors for them. All of them exit the Transport in flight.


T-BOB technologies, activities, outfits:

Like all MASK agents' vehicles, Scott's vehicle can transform T-Bob. In this, and many other episodes, T-Bob's default mode can be seen.

T-Bob has a wheel on which he can ride after his transformation, like a one-wheeled scooter.

Scott uses T-Bob very often as a means of transportation, transforming T-Bob into scooter mode.

This mode was also part of the toy, but rather poorly implemented, as T-Bob had 3 wheels here.

Once again time for T-Bob to be a hero.

To destroy Blackout, Alex and Matt develop "Project Horseshoe". They want to bundle electrical energy with the vehicles.

To achieve this they need T-Bob. The electrical energy of the vehicles is directed to T-Bob, he bundles them and shoots them at Blackout.

V.E.N.O.M. Technologies:

Blackout was the name Miles Mayhem gave to a powerful machine he commisioned from Japanese inventor Yama. Posing as an honest businessman, Mayhem promised to Yama him 2 million dollars to design a machine that could draw power from any source and deliver it to any area with an electrical emergency. Yama was convinced the invention would only be used to better mankind.

As soon as the machine was operational, Mayhem stole it from Yama's laboratory and tested it by having it drain all electricity from a power plant. This caused an entire town to lose of it's power, and stopped the new Bullet Train in it's tracks. Mayhem made sure that all of the V.E.N.O.M. vehicles were insulated against Blackout's effects.

Yama was visited by Matt Trakker and agents of M.A.S.K. and came to the conclusion that Blackout could possibly be stopped by a smilar, but larger, more powerfull machine could overload it's circuits with one powerful blast.

Trakker and Alex Sector developed 'Project Horseshoe' and used robot T-Bob as an electrical conductor to succesfully overload Blackout.
