HEAVY WATER (v1)
COBRA RADIOLOGICAL WEAPONS SPECIALISTS
Heavy Water came with two black guns, a grey belt, and a black backpack with green hoses. The belt plugs into the backpack and the figure, and the hoses plug into the figure.
If it fogs photographic film and makes your shorts glow in the dark, the COBRA HEAVY WATER troopers know that to do with it. The most feared division of the TOXO-VIPER troopers (a.k.a. the "leaky suit brigade", most of these guys trained at secret facilities in the former Soviet Union. It was there that they worked as repair technicians at power plants and weapons labs of renegade and outlaw states, which were desperate for anyone who seemed to know what he was doing, to come and deal with their leaking reactors and unstable munitions stockpiles. In other words, they were the best at working with the worst. HEAVY WATER suits are composed of lead foil and ultra-dense composites in multiple laminations, with self-contained cooling systems that also serve to theoretically wash away dangerous accumulations of radioactive materials. They slosh when the walk and sound as if they're gargling when they speak, but COBRA troops know enough to step out of their way when they come down the corridor.
