Animated Appearances

Techno-Vipers were animated only for commercials.

Headcanon

Techno-Vipers were introduced to the Cobra forces in late 1984, with their appearance represented by Version 1. They served as field mechanics and combat engineers, and handled various technical/engineering tasks previously performed by Tele-Vipers. Techno-Vipers ranked in the third tier of Viper ranks, alongside Tele-Vipers and Track Vipers, one step above Motor Vipers, and below the more specialized Mega-Vipers and Cyber-Vipers.

Modern battles involve expensive, complicated machines and it is inevitable that these machines sustain enemy inflicted damage, succumb to driver-error, or simply break down of their own accord. It is the mission of the Techno-Vipers to provide field maintenance support and combat-engineer capability to the frontline Cobra troops. Techno-Vipers can repair HISS tanks, build bridges, and retrieve large heavy machines from seemingly inaccessible places.
"Just because the Techno-Vipers carry wrenches and jacks, don't underestimate them! They work their way up from the ranks of Vipers and each one is a qualified Cobra Infantryman. They also function as sappers and are always called on as the first wave in assaulting a heavily fortified position!"
Variations: On some figures the belt buckle was painted green.

Modern space battles involve expensive, complicated equipment. And like most things that are expensive and complicated, this equipment tends to break down. The job of repairing the high-tech machines belongs to the Techno-Vipers. They can repair everything from Cobra Detonators to Ice Snakes, but their most important duty involves the maintenance and operations of Cobra Power Fighter units. With design plans stolen from G.I. Joe, the Techno-Vipers helped design the Power Fighters, so naturally they were Cobra Commander's first choice to drive them—full throttle and armed to the max!
Variations: There exists a very rare variant with yellow instead of bronze, as pictured on the filecard.
Toy Notes: Item #81036. This figure is considered a high-demand item.
