The COBRA TROOPER infantry forces are the most basic, bottom-of-the-barrel soldier in the COBRA regime. They have to work their way up to become COBRA VIPER forces. They are thugs, mercenaries, pirates and assorted lowlifes who are recruited from all over the world. They are given the most basic level of training, which amounts to simply organizing a handful of them into a reasonably cohesive group, giving them the most basic of uniforms, handing them equipment, and telling them to go out and destroy, sabotage and wreak havoc. The COBRA TROOPER divisions are not specialized, but instead are sent in as basic infantry ground forces. Their key advantages are their pure nastiness and sheer numbers.
"We're the grunts of the COBRA organization, the guys who pour into the field and fight for all we're worth, overpowering the enemy with might, meanness and machine guns."
Cobra Trooper is one of 5 figures in the 25th Anniversary (Cobra Legions) boxset.
