Hasbro: G.I. Joe - 25th Anniversary
Cobra Commander (Battle Armor)
Cobra Commander (Battle Armor)

File Name: Classified
Bio: Cobra Commander likes to be up front in the thick of the action when his Cobra Viper forces, Cobra Eels, and "Siegies" confront the G.I. Joe team. To protect the commander in the heat of battle, Destro had the best technical minds in his armament factory create a special suit of body armor that combiones flexible bullet-proof polymer fabrics with beryllium steel plate components. The entire suit is air-conditioned, solvent-resistant, and ray-shielded. The helmet is fitted with an integral com-system, internal read-outs for environmental quality, and a miniaturized computer display.
Comments: "At least we don't have to worry about Cobra outfitting whole units with these suits. Each one costs about as much as a jet fighter. The plate parts can withstand a direct hit from a heavy mnachine-gun and the flexible parts will stop anything up to a .367 magnum. We suspect that the helmet has an snti-tamper device with a direct hook-up to a half-pound of plastic explosives."
