GI JOE FLAK VIPER Vintage Action Figure Cobra COMPLETE 3 3/4 C9+ v1 1992
Flak-Viper (version 1) was released by Hasbro and was released carded as part of the eleventh series (1992). He was discontinued domestically in 1993.
Flak-Viper came with a light blue rifle, a green backpack/missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), two light blue missiles, and a black figure stand.
Flak-Vipers have a passive, infrared targeting and sighting system built into their helmets. This allows them to fire extremely accurate Tail-Biter missiles at GI Joe aircraft with absolute impunity! These are dedicated and motivated troopers. To maintain maximum level of effectiveness, Flak Vipers spend long hours everyday practicing simulated missile engagements using a program cartridge that plugs into their helmets. It would be like playing a portable video game for 10 hours straight! These guys get a kick out of roaming the battlefield in the Cobra Parasite while "picking off" incoming enemy aircraft.
