There was only one version of the toy.
This gunship is actually less heavily armed than either the G.I.Joe attack helicopters or contemporary helicopters when it came out (the AH-64 Apache and the Mi-24 Hind), both when it comes to the main gun (doesn't have multi-barreled guns or chain-guns of 20+ mm or larger) and the missile complement (with the Apache having 16 anti-tank missiles or 8 anti-tank missiles plus either 4 AAMs, two rocket pods, or two gun pods on the outer pylons)
