battles. They can be specialized
(conquest) battles like the Sea Battles are, but instead of large oil
resources, the resources are either minerals or diamonds (or both). Some troop
ideas are for GI Joe: Snow Cat (vehicle), Polar Bear (vehicle), Avalanche
(vehicle), Iceberg (figure), Frostbite (figure), Snow Job (figure). For Cobra:
Wolf (vehicle), Ice Sabre (vehicle), Ice-Viper (figure), Snow Serpent (figure).
These vehicles and figures could only be used for Arctic battles.
Sea Battles have submarines. GI Joe ideas are the S.H.A.R.C. and, for Cobra,
the BUGG. Could also add divers for sea
battles: Torpedo, Deep-Six, Wet-suit (Joes) and Eels (Cobra). Also could have
the Cobra Battle Barge for Sea Battles. Use the Terror Drome base for Cobra
instead of the Tactical Battle Platform.
Could also have the Terror Drome as the Cobra base for special ops
for Cobra. They can be the counterpart
to the Joes Paratroopers. Introduce Frag-Vipers
for Cobra as a counterpart to Gung-Ho. Lowlight as long distance shooter,
similar to the Baroness
the GI Joe APC or Warthog AIFV. Either
vehicle could have the capability to deploy Steel Battalion Troops during the
battle. Another Joe vehicle idea is the Bridge Layer: it could lay its bridge
over minefields and/or barricades to allow Joe vehicles and troops to bypass
these types of defences. Somewhat similar, but Tripwire could be a new Joe
soldier that deactivates mines during a battle.
Anti-aircraft gun as a defensive unit.
Best part is that the gun could also be employed against ground targets,
unlike the Anti-air missiles. Cobra has
the ASP and the Joes have the FLAK or the Whirlwind
jets that operate like the helicopters in the game in that they can hover. Cobra
has the Rattler and the Joes have the Sky Hawk or the Tiger Rat (the captured
Rattler used by GI Joe’s Tiger Force).
specialists: Joes could have Breaker or Dial-Tone and Cobra the
Tele-Vipers. These specialists could
call in air strikes or artillery.
but computer specialist: Mainframe for the Joes and Techno-Viper for Cobra.
Both could hack enemy defences.
warfare specialists: Air Tight for the Joes and Toxo-Vipers for Cobra. Their
gas could cause major damage to troops that deploy from barracks. Gas could
either have no effect, or very limited effect on vehicles.
action packs from the 1987 / 1988 series (series VI & VII) that can be
equipped by soldiers and give bonus boost to the unit using it.
