Iron Grenadier Trooper











Previous character: Wraith
Next character: Cobra Pilot

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Iron Grenadier Troopers of this sort were never animated.

Headcanon

Selected from the best of his personal contingent of Cobra forces, Destro's soldiers supported his separation from Cobra in April 1985. Divided into Officers (red masks) and Troopers (purple masks), IG units played many of the same roles they once did as Cobras and Vipers, though Destro maintained his own air and sea specialists and vehicle operators. Whereas most Cobra forces had in-depth training only for specialized tasks, all Iron Grenadiers had a training regiment focusing on battle tactics and the exertion of physical power in close combat, in addition to their specialty. The Troopers' appearance is represented by Version 1.

DESTRO has built up his army of IRON GRENADIER troopers from among his own bodyguards. Chosen for their endurance, tenacity, and pure meanness, IRON GRENADIER troopers are part of the weapon supplier's plans to take control of the COBRA organization. The IRON GRENADIER force has been trained to infiltrate an area and spread panic and chaos, resulting in an increased demand for weapons—supplied by DESTRO, of course. An IRON GRENADIER trooper is like an obnoxious salesman with guns. In fact, he gets a commission on any armaments sold because of his efforts, and receives incentive points for starting riots and encouraging armed revolts.
"We have no hearts, we have no fears, we'll sell you guns, we'll sell you spears... We are the IRON GRENADIERS!" (part of the IRON GRENADIERS marching song)
