M.A.S.K. Technologies:

 (click for images)

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.

Every MASK agent had it, every fan wanted it, the iconic MASK watch.

With the watch, today we would say smartwatch, the agents were informed that they were selected by the M.A.S.K. computer for a mission.

A flashing mask, similar to Matt's Ultra Flash mask, appeared in the watch's display, signaling to the agents that they were needed.

These left thereupon everything and drop, and hurried to the mission.

The watch was silver / red with a metal bracelet.

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.

Scott has once again put something great in T-Bob.

During a horse show, where ten of the famous Lipizzaner stallions are shown, Scott eats with relish popcorn, from T-Bob's head.

In T-Bob's drawer in the belly, here he has also transported spaghetti, the popcorn is prepared.

Under the lid in his head, it is kept warm and get served.

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

The Sonic Transmitter was a research device used by International Electronics and believed stolen by V.E.N.O.M.. It produced a sound pitch too high for humans ears to acknowldege. It produced a variable frequency transmitter at 30.000 cycle note.

V.E.N.O.M. used the Transmitter to spook a group of valuable Lippizaner stallions during a special presentation held in the Great Hall of the palace of Viena. The horses ran amuck and almost injured some of the human audience members. Then were then herded into a secret escape route originally built for Franz Joseph of Austria.

After collecting the horses, the agents of V.E.N.O.M. left the transmitter at the scene of the crime, where it was found by M.A.S.K. operatives Matt Trakker and Dusty Hayes.

Summary of The Lippizaner Mystery

Location of the episode*: Austria
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. steal ten of the famous Lippizaner Stallions by using a sonic transmitter to stampede the horses during a special show. They plan to sell them to corrupt Arab billionaire Emir of Amrah for $4 million in platinum bars.  

Safety tip*
Dusty tells Scott to always let a horse know your position when you walk around one. T-Bob finds out why the hard way.

Facts worth knowing about The Lippizaner Mystery

Particularly in this episode*:

T-Bob mentions the times he and Scott were nearly trampled by elephants in Singapore (episode 16) and took sky-diving lessons off the Eiffel Tower without a parachute (Episode 34).
•When Matt asks the M.A.S.K. Computer to select a team, we see Gloria Baker and Buddy Hawks in their civilian life, but there is no voice-over from the M.A.S.K. Computer.
Buddy Hawks appears in action near the end of the mission but doesn't seem to have any vehicle assigned to him.
Matt Trakker will find himself knocked out on a conveyor belt again in the episode The Royal Cape Caper.
•Neither Vanessa Warfield nor Cliff Dagger have their own vehicle in the episode. All of them end up escaping with Piranha.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•During the epilogue in the wrecked hotel room, Dusty Hayes speaks with Buddy Hawks's voice.
