High Explosive Anti-Tank Rocket
"We don’t just fire at anything; we fire at everything!"
These Cobra anti-tank specialists are equipped with the latest in hyper-kinetic, high-speed, armor-piercing technology. The harness-supported launch tube has active heat vents and an infrared suppressor to cut down detection hazards. The sighting system is fiber-optically linked to the operator’s helmet, which contains range-finders, trajectory computers and image intensifiers. This allowed the Cobra HEAT-VIPER troops to fire their weapons from behind cover under adverse conditions. It takes a lot of nerve to squeeze off a hand-held rocket at a 60 ton GI Joe vehicle coming at you, because they know that if they miss, any Joe worth his salt won’t let them get a second try.
HEAT-Viper 58 was created and played by Brian Burke.
