Cobra_Troopers_2_flat.jpg

Cobra Commander inspires undying loyalty in his soldiers. However, they wouldn't become part of the tremendous COBRA ranks if they didn't get results. While the standard 'blueshirt' troopers are the backbone of Cobra Commander's army, the terrorist organization's leader has realized the importance of specialized training to meet specific needs. As he weaves his dangerous web across the globe, he needs troopers who not only endure the harsh environments they're placed in but use it to their advantage. Trained in desert survival and combat, Cobra Commander's Desert Ops Troopers wear tan uniforms to blend in with the whirling sands of the desert. By the time they are spotted, it's too late for their enemies.

These Cobras look moderately competent! I always wondered if the Joes and Cobras needed more practice at the shooting range....

Hail Cobra!!! i spent most of the late 1980's in the grunts, and even though i was an 0311, i usually carried the base plate for the M224 60mm mortar. it weighed about 15 pounds and i always attached it to the straps of my alice pack. that way i always had a dry place to sit down when we dropped our gear! the lazy 0341's didn't mind that i was humping their gear for them. i always look at your work, love it!!!

More random thoughts; I remember reading a post-WWII analysis which identified the mortar as the most effective infantry combat weapon. Firearms can throw a hail of copper-jacketed lead which forces the opposing troops to seek cover; however, a mortar round can neutralize even a well-concealed enemy because of the high angle of indirect fire.

A surprising percentage of casualties were attributed to this weapon, rather than the more common infantry sidearm.

yes, that is right. the soldiers had more fear of mortar and artillery barrages than infantry weapons.

my favourite mortar bit is that the russians developed their 82mm mortar so that while they could use captured german 81mm rounds, germans could not fit captured 82mm rounds in their 81mm weapons. smart!

HA! The guy in the background without the helmet cracks me up. He looks a bit pissed that he's stuck holding the bag, and without a helmet none-the-less.

Nifty. B-)

Kinda funny that Cobra never had a "Mortar Viper" despite having a specialisation for darn near everything else (Night, Frag, H.E.A.T., Flak, Laser, Astro, Bio, Cyber, Toxo, Ninja, etc, etc).

yeah, they kinda bypassed a lot of potentially cool variations and went for the 'cool' hi-tech specialized troops. no matter, it was the original troopers who are above all else.

Well, they did get out a basic blueshirt with an RPG as a "bazooka trooper" a year or two ago, so I guess that's something.

Aw, nice. Your style makes anything look wickedly amazing.

The camo of the pants of the trooper on the left reminds me of WWII German Peadot camo...Just sayin'.

thanks pal! yes, i overtly used the peadot style of camo for these guys (as well as my previous cobra trooper image), as the SS are a good real-world counterpart to Cobra.

I did notice that you had used it earlier. It really fits quite well!

I agree, the SS are a very good real-world equivalent of Cobra.
Keep up the awesome, sir!
