T.A.R.G.A.T. came with a purple face shield, a red missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), two pink missiles, a pink rifle, a pink submachine gun, a pink pistol, and a pink figure stand.

Filecard Information

Motto: "If you think sky diving to Earth from a plane is dangerous, try doing it from a Cobra Invader orbiting the moon!"

These terror troopers are deployed into orbit from Cobra Invaders wearing specialized, self-contained space suits. The suits contain ceramic composite heat shielding armor that provides coolant safety during atmospheric re-entry. When two or three of them return to Earth at the same time, they are often mistaken for a meteor shower - until they start shooting like typical Cobra terrorists! They are considered to be formidable battle opponents with exceptional firepower capabilities, so next time you see a meteor shower, it might be a good idea to stand beside a G.I. Joe...just in case.

1. Trans Atmospheric, anti-implosion space suit
2. T.A.R.G.A.T. helmet with folding shield
3. Two thigh-mounted, quick-draw pistol holsters

At some point, carded T.A.R.G.A.T. figures had a change made to the back of the card. One cardback has a picture of a painted Payload prototype among the six Star Brigade figures - the other cardback has the corrected Payload figure among the six Star Brigade figures.
