SGT. AIRBORNE (v4)
G.I. JOE PARATROOPER
Sgt. Airborne came with a blue and black helmet, a blue, black, red, and gray webgear, a gray leg harness, a black shotgun, and a black submachine gun.
The G.I. JOE team launches a surprise attack on COBRA! Ninja commando SNAKE EYES uses a rappelling line to breach the enemy's defenses as SGT. AIRBORNE descends from the sky. On the ground, AGENT MOUSE takes aim with his marksman rifle at the evil COBRA forces.
There is a small variation concerning Sgt. Airborne's feet - some have been found with copyright stamps while others have not.
Sgt. Airborne (version 4) was created using all new molds.
Note that the design of the body itself was previously used for Conrad "Duke" Hauser (v48) (2012).
Versions of Airborne
In 2003, Airborne was renamed "Sgt. Airborne." In 2009, he was renamed again to "Air Raid." So while there are several names, they are based on "Airborne."
Note that Airborne v2 and v3 have a file name of Robert M. Six and are a different character. Also note that Air Raid v2 has a file name of Benjamin R. Thomas, thus making him yet another character.
