GI JOE HEAT VIPER Vintage Action Figure Cobra COMPLETE 3 3/4 C9+ v1 1989
H.E.A.T. (High Explosive Anti-Tank) 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, then was discontinued domestically in 1991.
H.E.A.T. Viper came with a gray bazooka, a gray hose, a gray backpack, six gray bazooka shells, and a black hose.
The new generation of Cobra anti-tank specialists are equipped with the latest in hyper-kinetic, high-speed, wire-guided, armor piercing technology. The harness supported launch tube has active heat vents and an infra-red suppressor to cut down detection hazards. The sighting system is fiber-optically linked to the operator's helmet which contains range-finders, trajectory computers and image intensifiers. This allows the H.E.A.T Viper to fire his weapon from behind cover under adverse visibility conditions.
