Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Terrorism
Motto: "COBRA, COBRAAAAA!"

The COBRA Troopers are the most basic, bottom-of-the-barrel soldiers in the COBRA regime. They have to work their way up to even become Vipers. They come from all over the world. They are thugs, mercenaries, pirates and assorted lowlifes that have committed so many atrocities that they only organization that will have them is COBRA. They are given the most basic level of training, which amounts to little more than organizing a handful into a reasonably cohesive group, giving them the most basic of uniforms, handing them equipment, and telling them to go out and cause trouble. The COBRA Trooper divisions were the first of COBRA's notable forces. They're not specialists. They're not qualified for anything than the most low level of infantry. They only advantages they have are pure nastiness and sheer numbers.

From General Hawk's files: "Maybe we shouldn't be surprised that COBRA was able to build up this most basic level of trooper divisions once again. We seem to live in a society that creates people who feel hostile towards established authority, disenfranchised and apart. COBRA gives them the semblance of purpose and belonging. Don't get me wrong. I don't sympathize with them. Ultimately, they're a too-well-organized, too-well-equipped, too-numerous band of thugs. And they're so stupid that a few of them we've captured have to be reminded to breathe."

Variations

No variations of Cobra Troopers (v1) are known to exist.

Body Construction

Cobra Trooper's head, arms, and torso were originally used to create the original Cobra Viper (1986). The waist and legs are repainted from the 1986 B.A.T.S..

This exact same arrangement of parts was used to create Viper (v5) (1997), Cobra Officer (1998), Cobra Viper (v6) (2002), Cobra Viper (v7) (2002), Cobra Viper (v8) (2003), and Cobra Viper (v9) (2003).

Versions of Cobra

In 1998, Cobra was renamed "Cobra Trooper," and in 2004, he was renamed "Cobra Infantry Trooper." So while there are several names, they are all based on the "Cobra" trooper.
