Fixed Wing Pilot
4 - AVACs CO - Special Operative
|“||The Firebat Jet is an unforgiving aircraft, so you’ve got to be the best to fly it. And, of course, we ARE the best.||”|
The elite AVAC (Air Viper, Advanced Class) pilots are specially trained to fly the Firebat Jet fleet. They must have exceptional piloting and navigation skills, because the Firebat Jet has been designed with minimal pilot instrumentation to increase its speed and maneuverability. AVAC pilots relish the challenge of “real” flying, in which their control and calculations determine whether they succeed or literally go down in flames. They are chosen from the ranks of the COBRA pilots for their utter fearlessness as much as their impressive piloting skills. Velocity is a AVAC assigned to the Plague. He is well liked by the rest of Plague due to his friendly personality and sense of humor.
Recognizing that perhaps throwing huge waves of of faceless troopers at his enemies was not the way to finally defeat the G.I. Joe Team, Cobra Commander instead tried to duplicate their success by forming his own equivalent team of specialists, drawn from the various Cobra forces. Velocity is a AVAC assigned to this Plague. He is equipped with a personal jetpack system. He climbed the ranks to become an A.V.A.C. and earn the right to pilot a Firebat, becoming one of the best pilots in Cobra, said by some to be second only to Wild Weasel (although Vapor would disagree).
Velocity was assigned to the Plague in September of 2007.
Velocity is a Plague member and AVAC CO.
