3rd of 19 episodes in DiC season 1. Written by Chris Weber and Karen Willson. First aired September 27, 1990.









Previous episode: Revenge of the Pharaohs
Next episode: Victory at Volcania, Part 1

In Chicago, Metal-Head's efforts to steal G.I. Joe's new levitation turbine are interrupted by a visit from his Granny. After a visit to Cobra's base in Lake Michigan, he leads an attack on a train being used to test the device. With Granny's help, Metal-Head hijacks the train and brings the turbine to Cobra, where it is installed to power a new Floating Fortress.

Freefall infiltrates the Fortress and uses his knowledge of Metal-Head's fibs to his Granny to maintain cover. He is soon joined by Pathfinder as the Fortress attacks Chicago. Joe forces are unable to dent the Fortress from outside, but Granny defects and helps Freefall and Pathfinder overload the Fortress's engines.
