|A Real American Hero (1988)
Appearance: light green helmet and vest; white wristbands; orange-brown pants with silver belt buckle; light green boots
- Working names included Rumbler, Gila and Sand-Turtle.
- "Rumbler" was apparently the closest to being used, because that's what Armadillo was called every time he appeared in the comics. (Six issues between 1988 and 1991: #80, 81, 92, 99, 111, and 112.) Rumbler the Crossfire driver did not appear in the comic.
- Armadillo's preliminary filecard began thusly:
|“||The modern third generation armored personnel carrier is a far gry from the old 'box on tracks' that nobody wanted to ride inside of. The new vehicles are faster, lower, better armored, more heavily armed and crammed with much more complex electronic targeting gear. The drivers must be capable of dealing with a confusing array of situation displays, threat warnings and environment sensors while steering 50,000 lbs of dead weight through barrages of anti-tank missiles and trying to avoid land mines. Needless to say, everybody would rather sit on top of them than ride inside.||”|
