THUNDERWING is one of the front men for the G.I. Joe team’s armored tank division. Before joining the military, he worked in construction, where he learned to operate heavy machinery. He also had a side job as a nightclub bouncer in the roughest part of town. Searching for more excitement, he saw the Army gave him the whole package and he joined the tank corps. Proving he had what it takes to be in the commander’s seat, he was offered a spot on the G.I. Joe team. His choice armor vehicle is a re-outfitted MOBAT (Motorized Offensive Battle Attack Tank). Its upgrades include more armor protection, digital fire control computers, laser range finders, night vision and advanced thermal imaging systems. Sitting in the commander’s station, Thunderwing coordinates enemy targets with his gunner, and clears the battlefield for ground infantry to take any stray prisoners. He often uses the smokescreen system to confuse opposing forces and take them by surprise. Cobra doesn’t need to just worry about the tank – they need to worry about the guy riding on top of it.
