COBRA B.A.T. (v2)
BATTLE ANDROID TROOPER
Series: Ten (1991)
Cobra B.A.T. (v2) was first released carded as part of the tenth series (1991). He was discontinued domestically in 1992.
Cobra B.A.T. came with an orange right hand attachment, an orange grenade launcher attachment, a black modular missile launcher (spring loaded that could really fire), a green missile, and a black battle stand.
B.A.T.s are totally artificial robot troopers with extremely primitive logic circuits and very sophisticated targeting sensors. They can absorb enormous amounts of battle damage and still continue their missions as long as their trigger finger circuits are intact. B.A.T.s are usually deployed from low-flying aircraft without use of parachutes. This delivery system is normally quite demoralizing to opposing troops who happen to witness it.
"The new B.A.T.s, although upgraded in weapons systems, have been severely down-graded in logic and memory components, which have been deemed unnecessary for what is now a machine gun with legs. The right arm can be replaced with a modular missile launcher capable of firing a wide assortment of ordnance. The basic model has three forward gears, no reverse option, and can be recharged from an ordinary household electrical outlet."
No variations of Cobra B.A.T. (v2) are known to exist.
Cobra B.A.T.'s body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
The whole mold was later used to create Cobra B.A.T. (v4) (2003) and Cobra Inferno B.A.T. (2003). B.A.T.'s waist and legs were re-colored and re-used in 1993 to create Zangief.
