As a trained tank driver, SGT. BAZOOKA knows what the COBRA armored vehicle drivers are thinking as they maneuver to avoid getting hit by his missiles. He knows the best evasive moves; this helps him second-guess COBRA vehicles and keep them targeted in his sights. SGT. BAZOOKA knows that having the skill and knowledge to aim and fire his missiles is only half the job; the weapons have to be hand-carried to the firefight and missile systems, even supposedly hand-portable ones, are bulky and heavy. A ten-mile run every morning and a strict schedule of weight training to maintain his strength and stamina at peak-levels.
"A wire-guided missile and a night-tracker weigh 46 pounds. A reload weighs 26 pounds, do I mind having to work out an extra hour a day to stay in shape to carry a reload in case my first shot misses? Negative!"
No variations of Sgt. Bazooka (v2) are known to exist.
