Cobra is always in a constant state of trying to one-up G.I. Joe. But how do you increase the effectiveness of a grenade thrower whose job is simply to aim and throw his grenades? Each Frag-Viper is given a specially designed hurling equipment based on the cesta used in the Basque sport Jai Alai. The cesta has automatic feed mechanism while the helmet has an electronic range-finder. The result is a man who can hurl grenades with the accuracy of grenade launchers and with nearly twice the speed.
