CONDOR Z25 PILOT
Series: Eight (1989)
Aero-Viper was released as part of the eighth series (1989), packaged exclusively with the Cobra Condor Z-25 hi-altitude fighter/bomber. He was also sold in 1990, then was discontinued domestically in 1991.
Aero-Viper came with a gold helmet.
The Condor is Cobra's entry in the advanced technology aircraft scene. Using its forward swept, aerolastic wings, and computer driven servo-actuators, the Condor can perform a turning radius roughly half that of an F-16, and can generate enough g-force pressure that would black out most pilots. Of course, most Cobra pilots aren't ordinary pilots.
"AERO-VIPERS aren't surgically altered to withstand g-forces like the STRATO-VIPERS and STAR-VIPERS. They lift weights and learn to take the pain. Aero-Vipers want to feel the stress on their bodies as they wrench their Condors through seemingly impossible maneuvers. So intense is their daily schedule, that they frequently report of recurrent dreams involving flying without benefit of an aircraft!"
No variations of Aero-Viper (v1) are known to exist.
Aero-Viper's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.
