Arctic HISS Driver











Previous character: Munitia
Next character: Air Viper Commando

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Arctic HISS Drivers were never animated.

Headcanon

HISS Drivers were introduced to the Cobra forces in 1980, and their arctic division was the first unit of Cobras to specialize in cold weather operations. Since various models of HISS tanks were always the backbone of Cobra's armor units, HISS Drivers were in service throughout Cobra's years of operation until the organization went underground in August 1989. Arctic HISS Drivers' appearance is represented by Version 1, and they shared equal rank with other HISS Drivers, though most were promoted to the rank of HISS Commander within two years.

ARCTIC H.I.S.S. DRIVERS, like all COBRA H.I.S.S. DRIVERS, are selected from the best of the COBRA infantry forces for their skills, physical strength, and initiative (which means they're some of the nastiest, toughest, and most aggressive troopers in the entire COBRA army). They are given concentrated training in the optimal operation of these powerful armored tanks; then they receive specialized training in cold weather combat and survival techniques. ARCTIC H.I.S.S. DRIVERS are graduates of COBRA Battle School and Advanced Weapons Systems Training.
