COBRA troopers are thugs, mercenaries, pirates and assorted lowlifes who are recruited from all over the world. They are all given basic training to organize them into a reasonably cohesive group with the skills and equipment to go out and destroy, sabotage and wreak havoc. Their key advantages are pure nastiness and sheer numbers. Some troopers receive specialized training in mines, detonators and other explosive devices used to destroy or disable targets. This trooper is part of a COBRA desert assault squad; he combines his extreme conditions training with his explosives expertise to devise desert-region attacks and traps for the G.I. JOE team.
"We're the grunts of the COBRA organization, the guys who pour into the field and overpower the enemy with machine guns, meanness - and well-places explosives."
No variations of Cobra Trooper (v9) are known to exist.
Versions of Cobra
In 1998, Cobra was renamed "Cobra Trooper," and in 2004, he was renamed "Cobra Infantry Trooper." So while there are several names, they are all based on the "Cobra" trooper.
