The ALLEY VIPERS are the Cobra equivalent of a police S.W.A.T. unit or British S.A.S. (Special Air Service). They form the spearhead of Cobra's inner-city invasion forces. This elite contingent of marauders are true masters of brutality, possessing a style of ruthlessness not present in other Cobra soldiers! Recruited from Cobra's most diabolical combat divisions, Alley Vipers use various forms of treachery to achieve their objectives! In order to graduate from their training program, they are required to survive a full burst of machine gun fire across their frontal body armor, execute a thirty foot jump onto concrete with full combat load and run down a hundred meter gas-filled corridor without a gas mask!
"Alley Vipers are big and strong as well as ruthless! Their body armor alone weighs 50 pounds and they carry at least 30 pounds of weapons, ammo, grenades, and climbing gear. You definitely don't want one of these gorillas running up and kicking your door down!"

The COBRA ALLEY VIPERS are the inner city invasion forces for COBRA. Recruited from other COBRA combat divisions, ALLEY VIPERS use various forms of evil to achieve their objectives .They go through extremely tough training in all kinds of urban environments—streets, buildings, and alleys. Only the toughest can successfully jump down thirty feet to a concrete floor while carrying a full combat load—and that's just one of the easy exercises. They look and act tough, so people are always running away, just at the sight of them. But BIG BEN from the G.I. JOE team did not run—he fought them and sent them packing. Now they live for the day when they can show him that they are the superior fighters.
