SALVO has a deep distrust for high-tech weapons systems with laser range-finders, targeting computers, and micro-circuit, heat-seeking detonation components. Such complexity makes them inherently unreliable, especially in chaotic battlefield conditions where dependability is the name of the game. Salvo prefers to carry great quantities of conventional weaponry to overwhelm enemy forces with massive expenditures of sheer firepower rather than battle them with sophisticated electronic hardware.
"Salvo doesn't believe in wasting perfectly good ammunition on wooden targets on firing ranges. Instead he'd rather test his anti-armor projectiles on actual enemy tanks and armored personnel carriers, such as the Cobra H.I.S.S. II. Nothing aggravates Salvo more than to go out on patrol and not find any Cobra targets to blow away. That would mean he'd have to lug all his unused ordnance back to G.I. Joe headquarters, and he doesn't enjoy that at all!"

He doesn't believe in wasting perfectly good ammunition on wooden targets on firing ranges. Instead, he'd rather test his anti-armor projectiles on actual enemy tanks and carriers. It's more accurate and delivers a bigger explosion.
"Nothing worse than going on patrol and not finding any COBRA forces. That means I have to carry all my ordnance back to base."
