HARD DRIVE did linear equations in his head when he was seven, beat every video game in the market by the age of eight, and hacked his way into defense ministry computers of a major foreign power before the age of ten. At MIT, which he graduated from at eighteen, he held 27 patents and led the wrestling team to two regional championships. The modern infantryman is outfitted with a fighting system that is a complex integration of weapons, optics, communications and sensors. What holds the system together and makes it work are microprocessors, and HARD DRIVE can maintain and repair them in the field. He is qualified as a small arms armorer, communications specialist and medic, which makes him capable of "fixing" any of the fighting system components, including the infantryman!
HARD DRIVE is the code name used by Martin A. Pidel, born in Yonkers, New York. Skilled at math, science and computer technology from an early age, he hacked into the Defense Ministry computers of a major foreign power by age ten. By the time he graduated M.I.T., Hard Drive held 27 patents and led the wrestling team to two regional championships.
Hard Drive served as a battlefield computer specialist for the reinstated G.I. Joe team. Today, like many Joes, he is a reserve member of the team. He was stationed in Russia, working closely with the Oktober Guard, until the Russian invasion of Crimea. He was then called home, where he currently works security at the Pit.
In 2019, Hard Drive was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant (2LT).
