    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Vipers are the backbone of the Cobra Army. The Cobra infantry troopers are issued a combination assault rifle/grenade launcher, with an advanced night vision/telescopic sight and range finder. Multi-layered body armor and composite helmets with built in camouflage and stealth are also standard issue. Vipers are rigorously trained, highly equipped and extremely motivated.

    Vipers are then given additional training, which enables them to be transferred to specialized units, focusing on specific military occupational specialties. These are considered Cobra's Elite units and are renamed according to their new specialties. Units even customize their chain of command, allowing for unique Viper designations with distinct leaders.
