Featured In

The APC was featured in several of the various media of GI Joe through the years, including Trading Cards, Comic Books, Cartoons and Commercials.


While most of it was identical to the original APC, some of the later mail-order releases had a dark-green top instead of the tan camouflage top.

This Hasbro Direct version with the dark-green top was repackaged to create the convention exclusive CUDA.

Vehicle Construction

The vehicle mold was repainted or retooled for the following vehicles:

APC (1983)
Night Scrambler (1989)
APC/'CUDA (1992)

International Releases

In Europe in the early 1980s, the APC was recolored in dark green and black and released as the Z-Force Armoured Troop Carrier. The interior of the APC was heavily re-tooled.

In Argentina, the APC was sold as the Transporte Tactico Anfibio.

In Brazil, the APC was sold as the Transporte Tãtico Anfíbio.
