MAJOR STORM accumulated his skills the hard way—in the field. He's forgotten more about armor tactics than most tank commanders will ever know in their lifetimes. He is a battle hardened warrior who has driven the big ones—the M-60A1 and the M1A1 all-purpose battlefield crusher. To him, the General is just another heavily-armored chunk of government hardware that was designed to defeat Cobra—it's just bigger than anything he's ever commanded.
"From the commander's seat of the General, Major Storm can scan the battlefield with an amazing array of sensors, including third generation image intensifiers, infrared detectors, pulse doppler radar and laser range finders. All this electronic hodge-podge is controlled by an advanced computer guided system that only the Major can decipher. The General boasts more firepower than an entire 155mm howitzer battery and its anti-aircraft defense system is second to none! To the dismay of the crew who keep it rumbling, Major Storm still refers to it as 'his tank'!"

MAJOR STORM accumulated his skills the hard way—on the battlefield. He's forgotten more about strategic tactics than most field officers will ever know in their lifetimes. He joined the G.I. JOE team as commander of the GENERAL—Mobile Strike Headquarters. This immense battle station was his pride and joy, until it was severely damaged by unknown saboteurs that escaped unchallenged into the night. The repairs will take over a year to complete. Now he's on a mission to find the culprits and bring them to justice!
Using intelligence gathered by the G.I. JOE team's Criminal Investigation Division, MAJOR STORM has chosen two prime candidates to assist him: LADY JAYE, the covert operations specialist and LT. FALCON, the tough-as-nails Green Beret. Each has been assigned a solo reconnaissance mission to uncover the mystery behind the evil deed. Who will be the first to report their findings and where will it lead the Major for the ultimate confrontation?
Toy Notes: Boxed in a convention-exclusive set with Lt. Falcon (03), Lady Jaye (03/I), Cobra Commander (03/I), Black Dragon (03), five copies of Swamp-Viper, and five copies of Black Dragon Trooper (03).
