Atmospheric Re-Entry Assault
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.
T.A.R.G.A.T.s were first organized and outfitted as a group in 1989.
T.A.R.G.A.T.s were given upgraded equipment and training in 1993.
