Motto: "We're the grunts of the COBRA organization, the guys who pour into the field and fight for all we're worth, overpowering the enemy with might, meanness and machine guns."
COBRA PARATROOPER forces are the lowest ranks in the COBRA legions, yet their great numbers provide COBRA with much of its muscle. Thugs, mercenaries, pirates and assorted lowlifes are recruited from all over the world with promises of future wealth - and instant opportunities to demolish and destroy. After some rudimentary training, they are handed a parachute and weapons and told to go out and wreak havoc. The battle may be on the ground or in the air, but wherever the location, COBRA PARATROOPER forces gleefully leap into the fray, guns blazing and eyes burning with a zeal for battle.
The 50th Anniversary release featured a different display stand.
Cobra Paratrooper was created using the entire body of Cobra (v2) (2007) with a new head.
