M.A.S.K. Technologies:

 (final appearance) (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.

 (final appearance) (click for images)
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.

 (final appearance) (click for images)
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.

In addition to Condor's antimatter beam and Laser-Guided Jet Mode, we see another technology built into Condor here.

A grappling hook.

This grappling hook is located on the underside of Condor and can be used by helicopter mode.

For this, a hatch opens on the underside from which the grappling hook is extended.

In addition to the more often used small rockets and the magnetic disk launcher, Thunderhawk also incorporated a winch.

This, like the other technologies, was installed in the weapons compartment on the underbody of Thunderhawk.

In this episode, Matt, along with Brad and Ace, saves a railroad train car from crashing into an abyss.

T-BOB technologies, activities, outfits:

 (click for images)
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.

Summary of Raiders Of The Orient Express

Location of the episode*: Zermatt, Switzerland
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. seeks “mad” King Ludwig’s treasure, and pilfers the Orient Express for clues. Vanessa is a passenger on the train disguised as a Countess and when the train goes through a tunnel, she disappears, along with a set of doors onboard the train.  

Safety tip*
T-Bob and Scott are in a hurry, so the robot wants to cross a railroad crossing when the warning signal is on. Scott tells him how dangerous this could be.

Facts worth knowing about Raiders Of The Orient Express

Particularly in this episode*:

•In the episode, we see the final agent selection by the M.A.S.K. computer. In season 2, that no longer exists.
•This is the last episode in which Scott and T-Bob are on a mission. In season 2, they only make cameo appearances
•Also in the episode, we see some of the M.A.S.K. technologies for the last time. Boulder Hill, the iconic M.A.S.K. watch and the transport jet.
•This is the first episode to watch the transport jet being loaded.
Bruce Sato is designated as Thunderhawk's pilot on this mission. Matt Trakker takes the passenger seat when he joins him.
•During the final battle, Jackhammer is ripped in half and the motorcycle part of Piranha is smashed to bits against a rock. Since they are never seen again, it is possible they were never recovered or repaired. Though it's possible that this isn't the chronological season finale.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•As T-Bob says he's Scott's first robot, too, his arm moves in front of Scott, then disappears behind him when Scott begins to move.
•When Scott and T-Bob drive away from the Transport jet and are seen from the back, Scott is drawn too small in proportion.
