Primary Specialty: Armor Officer
Secondary Specialty: Transportation
STEELER comes from a blue-collar middle-class background. He put himself through college on an ROTC scholarship and by working as a heavy equipment operator. He entered Armor School at Fort Knox, graduating at the top of his class. He is familiar and proficient with all NATO and Warsaw Pact AFVs (Armored Fighting Vehicles). Among the first to join the G.I. JOE team, he has taken part in countless operations against the COBRA organization. While he is recognized as a tough and dedicated soldier, his frequent clashes with authority figures, especially superior officers, make him quite a handful. Coming from a background in which you proved your mettle through physical contests, he frequently challenges team members to tests of strength and stamina.
From LT. FALCON's Files:
"Sometimes the NIGHT FORCE unit requires more than stealth, and we just need to blast our way through something. That's where STEELER comes in, usually behind the controls of the NIGHT F.L.A.K. (attack cannon). Luckily, he instinctively knows when to come knocking; it seems every time I try to give him an order, he conveniently has to test fire his weapons!"
No variations of Steeler (v6) are known to exist.
Steeler (version 6) was created using the head of Steeler (v4) (2008), the upper arms of Shock Trooper (2011), the lower arms and hands of Lifeline (v7) (2011), the legs of Snake Eyes (v54) (2011), and the torso, waist, and modified knees of Firefly (v26) (2013).
