Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Fast Blast Vipers were never animated.

Headcanon

Fast Blast Vipers were introduced to Cobra's forces in 1991, succeeding the HEAT Vipers as Cobra's anti-tank specialists. Their appearance was represented by Version 1. They ranked in the third tier of Vipers, alongside Techno-Vipers and Strato-Vipers, and a step above generic Vipers.
