Long Range appeared in the spinoff G.I. Joe: Sigma Six series, as his vehicle the ROCC was released for both toy lines. (The Sigma Six ROCC came with a two-inch-scale Long Range, in keeping with that line's smaller size.) He was voiced by Scotty Ray.
Born January 9, 1962, initially came to America in 1980 on a student visa; became a citizen and enlisted in the Army upon graduation from the University of Texas at Austin. Long Range joined the Joe Team in March 1993, and his appearance is represented by Version 1.

|LONG RANGE faces each situation with calm determination. He has read every major philosopher from Aristotle to Zeno and studied every battle from Antietam to Zusmarshausen. He applies the wisdom of the centuries to the present problem, accompanied by a full blast from an M-60 when he really wants to get his point across. As the driver for the G.I. JOE team's new mobile base, he doesn't let anything come between him and his objective. Once he's in motion, nothing stops him. He'll go over, under, around, or through whatever is in his way, but he will not, under any circumstances, be stopped by it. "As Diogenes said, 'Stand a little out of my sun,'" LONG RANGE says as he drives straight over a batallion of mutant androids, leaving rushed silicon chips and twisted metal in his wake.|
"Aristotle said that law is order, and good law is good order. I intend to make COBRA learn what good law and order is. If they have to learn it the hard way, so be it."
