Early on, Cobra realized that in order to beat G.I. Joe, they will need infantrymen with specific specialties that regular Cobra Troopers could not provide. Thus, the Viper Pilot force was created to fill the need for airborne capable troops.
- In the toyline, the Viper Pilot was a Cobra Trooper figure with a silver insignia, rather than red. In both the comics and animated series, there was no attempt to distinguish between the two.
