GI JOE FRAG VIPER Vintage Action Figure 95% COMPLETE 3 3/4 C9+ v1 1989
Frag Viper (version 1) was released by Hasbro and was first released carded as part of the eighth series (1989). He was also sold in 1990 and was discontinued domestically in 1991.
Frag-Viper came with a black submachine gun, a black backpack, a black grenade throwing tool, a black hose, a black tube, and three black grenades.
An integral part of the Cobra Viper fire-team, the Frag Viper can toss high-explosive fragmentation grenades with all the range and accuracy of an M-79 or M-203 R.P.G.L. but without the noise from the muzzle blast. The secret lies in the manual hurling basket, based on the cesta used in the Basque sport of Jai Alai. The Frag Viper cesta is equipped with automatic feed and and variable time-fuser with a cable link to the helmet's automatic range-finder.
