Primary Specialty: Armor
Secondary Specialty: Heavy Equipment Operator
Cross-Country's father was a bulldozer operator and his mother drove a grader. You might say he was born to drive big yellow things that run on diesel. Coupled with his natural affinity for heavy machinery, his uncanny sense of direction and fearlessness under fire make him the man you want at the controls whether you're riding into a hairy situation or trying to get out of one! Qualified expert with Heavy Laser Cannon, M-16A2, M-2 .50 cal. MG and .45 Auto-Pistol.
"Crank-Case might be a wildman behind the wheel of his A.W.E. Striker, but Cross-Country will steer that H.A.V.O.C. of his across terrain that would break both axles of the RTV. Of course, a tracked vehicle has natural advantages, but it is Cross-Country's talent for sensing the most favorable grade, the shallowest mud and the firmest sand that makes the difference."
Cross-Country was molded with either gray plastic feet or white plastic feet. The hair color is also slightly different.
Cross-Country's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.
In India, Funskool released Cross-Country in red and gray in 2002.
