Crimson Guard Squad Leader











Previous character: G.I. Joe Trooper
Next character: Para-Viper

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Crimson Guard Squad Leaders were never animated.

Headcanon

Crimson Guardsmen were introduced to the Cobra forces in 1982, ranked as Troopers, Squad Leaders, and Officers, each originally having their own uniform color scheme. The Squad Leaders were replaced by Crimson Guard Immortals from late 1986 until 1989. All ranks of the Crimson Guard were represented by Crimson Guard Version 7 by 1991.

CRIMSON GUARD troopers are placed in squads that are assigned a particular area, where the troopers infiltrate various professions of power. Overseeing these small groups are CRIMSON GUARD squad leaders, with whom the troopers maintain contact while in the field. Squad leaders monitor the progress of their group, relay orders from their commanders, and spearhead specializied operations of corporate and political espionage. A squad leader has risen from the rank of trooper by proving his worth through measurable results: money in COBRA coffers, businesses under his control, and politicians in his pockets.
"You can't defeat us, you can't stop us—because you don't even know we exist."
