Primary Specialty: Laboratory Technologist
Secondary Specialty: Chemical Analysis
Motto: "We work hard behind the schemes."
Unlike their namesake, COBRA LAB-RATS do not experiment on themselves. They are COBRA TROOPERS that have gained status by showing great aptitude for chemical and other scientific research. These skilled technicians use sophisticated laboratory equipment to create and reproduce a host of chemical agents and munitions. It is their primary function to develop and test new classes of chemical weapons as well as provide delivery method options to COBRA COMMANDER.
COBRA LAB-RATS have been authorized to experiment on all prisoners, as well as their fellow soldiers. Which is lucky for them, since TOXO-VIPERS do not volunteer to be infected with Compound Z. Most cases involve accidental exposure, while other methods are much more nefarious. Each dose and phase level of the infected personnel must be documented to maintain control over their test subjects. However, the psychological effect of zombified soldiers turning against their own teammates is not yet known.
Cobra Lab-Rats was available both boxed and bagged.
