COBRA VIPERS are the highly motivated, superbly trained and formidably equipped backbone of the COBRA legions. Their combination assault rifle/grenade launcher can function as a short burst assault weapon, sustained fire cover support weapon, or long-range marksman rifle with a night vision telescopic sight and rangefinder.
Initial releases had different weapons listed on Cobra Viper's filecard than later shipments.
Due to environmental concerns and rising cost, the vac-metal chrome finish on Cobra Viper's face mask was changed to a metallic silver paint for the 50th Anniversary release.
Cobra Viper (version 28) was created using the head of Viper (v20) (2009), the torso, waist, upper arms, hands, and upper legs of Shock Trooper (2011), the lower arms of Storm Shadow (v34a) (2009) and Storm Shadow (v34b) (2009), and the lower legs and feet of Zartan (v20) (2010).
