COBRA STELLAR STILETTO PILOT
Series: Seven (1988)

Star-Viper came with no accessories.
A STAR-VIPER is a qualified Cobra STRATO-VIPER with an electro-magnetic shunt surgically implanted in the right side of his brain. During high-speed, upper-atmospheric dog-fights, electronic impulses are introduced through the shunt, stimulating the reflexes while heightening awareness for split-second decisions.
"Star-Vipers are exceedingly dangerous in action! They routinely execute fast maneuvers with insect-like efficiency. However, they are referred to as 'Jolt-Heads' by their fellow Cobras and are known to be distracted and generally disoriented between missions."
No variations of Star-Viper (v1) are known to exist.
Star-Viper's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.
Star-Viper's chest and arms were re-used to create Major Altitude and Major Altitude (v2). His legs were re-used to create Black Dragon Trooper (2003).
