Cobra Battle Android Trooper
Code Name Nano-B.A.T.
Primary Function: Elimination of G.I.Joe
Secondary Function: Self Destruction
B.A.T.’s (Battle Android Troopers) are totally artificial robotic soldiers with extremely primitive logic circuits and very sophisticated targeting sensors. They can absorb enormous amounts of battle damage and still continue their missions as long as their trigger finger circuits and weapon systems are intact. B.A.T.’s are usually deployed from low flying aircraft without the use of parachutes. This delivery system is quite demoralizing to opposing troops who happen to witness it and then actually survive the impending onslaught.
A consignment of B.A.T.’s were taken to a secret factory in the United Kingdom by HOTWIRE. The COBRA mechanic infused all the units with Nanomite technology, which operates on a molecular scale to improve it’s host equipment while destroying or re-purposing enemy materials. He believes that using the microscopic machines will provide instantaneous repair of battle damaged B.A.T.’s during combat, while greatly adding to the troopers’ destructive capabilities. These nanomite-enhanced troopers emit an eerie green glow and have an adverse environmental impact on everything they touch.
From HOTWIRE’s journals. “Nanomite technology is a truly amazing enhancement. First they glow and then they blow-up G.I.Joe!“
