The set has various rooms, including a room with a lever that launches the included fire bat jet vehicle. It also has a 'no smoking' sign amongst its features. Along with the set, there is a bilingual French and English file card. The fire bat included four identical bombs and two different ones, had a tight cockpit that was a fit for the AVAC pilot, and the wings of the vehicle could fold up when inserted into its launch bay. It also included an AVAC pilot who had a removable parachute.
