Series: Fifteen (1998)
Thunderwing was released as part of the fifteenth series (1998) with the G.I.Joe MOBAT (1998) (Motorized Offensive Battle Attack Tank). Also included with the MOBAT and Thunderwing was Heavy Duty (v3).
The MOBAT, Thunderwing, and Heavy Duty were not produced in 1999, but they were re-packaged and available again in 2000.
Thunderwing came with a green helmet, a black visor, a green radio headset, a black rifle, a black backpack, and a black figure stand.
While the visor is very similar to the one originally available with Thunder, Thunder's visor is made of a shiny plastic while Thunderwing's visor is made of a dull plastic.
Note that the instructions that came with the G.I.Joe MOBAT (1998) did not specifically state which accessories were intended for Thunderwing and which were intended for Heavy-Duty (v3). However, the packaging photography depicts these accessories with Thunderwing.
