Vehicle Gunner

(aka Cobra Vehicle Gunner)









Previous character: Montezuma's Skeleton
Next character: Cobra Diver

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Vehicle Gunners were never animated.

Headcanon

Vehicle Gunners were introduced to the Cobra forces in 1980, with their appearance represented by Version 1. Recruited from Cobra Troopers with only a change in their color of uniform, they were part of Cobra's ground vehicle forces until the organization went underground in August 1989.
