To my knowledge, Dragonsky was never animated.
Born December 8, 1959. Dragonsky was the youngest of the ten original members of the Oktober Guard, which was formed in 1980 in response to the Cobra threat, and thus the Soviet counterpart to the G.I. Joe Team. His appearance is represented by Version 1.

|ANDREI "DRAGONSKY" FREISOV is a member of the OKTOBER GUARD (Russian/Warsaw Pact equivalent of the G.I. JOE Team) and an expert with special weaponry, including his favorite—the flamethrower. His interest in fire control and the military started at an early age. As a child, he was seen throwing Molotov cocktails at German Panzers when they invaded his homeland. He later joined the Soviet Army and had a long and successful military career. His greatest honor came with the invitation to join the elite OKTOBER GUARD. Dragonsky carries the latest in military pyro-technology and wears a special flame-retardant suit. He is a very dedicated and loyal individual, always ready to protect his comrades even when the odds are against him.|
Early in Dragonsky's military career, he was trained by a brilliant commander who later proved to be insane and immoral. Because he failed to turn him in when he had the chance, the OKTOBER GUARDSMAN has made it his personal responsibility to someday bring down the madman. Even though his personal nemesis now goes by the name of "GENERAL MAYHEM," the brutal tactics are all too familiar to Dragonsky. It is to this end that he seeks the assistance of the G.I. JOE Team in capturing GENERAL MAYHEM for his crimes against the "motherland."
"Even in Siberia, I make sure things get really hot!"

|DRAGONSKY can operate just about any form of wheeled transportation with impressive skill and just enough reckless abandon to scare the enemy into a hasty retreat. He's an expert with a flamethrower and prefers it above any other weapon. He can aim a fiery blast with amazing precision and never seems to be bothered by the intense heat. A former member of the Soviet Army, DRAGONSKY joined the OKTOBER GUARD as the team's mechanic, welder, and incendiary weapons specialist. He has combined all three skills to build custom-designed fire-blasting attachments for the team's vehicles. COBRA forces have been unpleasantly surprised to find themselves blasted by a wall of flames where just moments ago there was only an innocent-looking transport vehicle.
"Whenever the enemy tries to make the situation hot for me, I make it ten times hotter for them.
