Motto: "We only have fun when things get blown up into tiny bits!"
An integral part of the COBRA Demolitions Team, the FRAG-VIPERS can toss high-explosive fragmentation grenades with all the range and accuracy of an M-79 or M-203 grenade launcher, but without the noise from the muzzle blast. The secret lies in the manual hurling basket, based on the cesta used in the Basque sport of jai alai. The FRAG-VIPERS' cesta is equipped with an automatic feed and variable-time fuse grenades with a computer link to the helmet's automatic range-finder. Their insect-like goggles contain electro-optical image-intensifiers that provide both infrared and night vision capabilities to locate targets wherever they may hide.
The FRAG-VIPERS carry a fifty round magazine with an automatic feeder, and can deliver fifteen rounds per minute. They follow the tactical guidance of COBRA LETAL, and have become so efficient and stealthy that their enemies never know where their attacks are coming from!
Frag-Vipers was available both boxed and bagged.
