Air Trooper











Previous character: Snow Serpent Commander
Next character: Doc (07)

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Air Troopers were never animated.

Headcanon

Air Troopers were part of Cobra's original assault forces, encountered by G.I. Joe as early as 1980. They specialized as jet pack troopers and had helmets suited to the task but were otherwise not distinguished from garden-variety Cobra Troopers in rank or skill. Their appearance is represented by Version 1.

COBRA AIR TROOPERS specialize in air assaults, using jet backpacks to fly into their target areas. As ground forces keep the enemy busy below, the air troopers sweep in from above. COBRA troopers who show exceptional air combat skills are selected for this elite force and given special training in airborne attack tactics. They also fly COBRA fighter jets on combat and scouting missions for COBRA COMMANDER.
"COBRA AIR TROOPERS are flying menaces from the sky. Their jet backpacks are operated by voice command, leaving both hands free to blast away with any and all weapons they're carrying."
