"No one enters our territory and leaves alive!"

RANGE-VIPERS are trained to survive long-term operations deep within unfriendly territory, completely cut off from communications or supplies. They have an unusually high tolerance for discomfort and can survive on a diet of snakes, grubs, roots, nuts, and whatever slow rodents they can catch. They are expected to procure their own ammunition by way of hit and run raids on enemy camps and ammo depots. These troopers are the top of the food chain and can flourish in the uninhabited wastelands of any region.

History

Canonical/Pre-MUX/Theme History:

Wilderness troopers. They are trained survivalists known for their high tolerance of harsh environments. The Range-Viper helmet looks like a stylized skull and was designed to intimidate. The Joes first encountered them during the Battle of Benzheen in 1991.[1]

MUX History:

In 2012 a squadron of Range-Vipers "defected" and were assigned to the Red Shadows under the leadership of Artemis.

OOC Notes

Range-Vipers are available on the MUX as Disposable Characters, with a much simpler application. They can also be apped directly as full character (format: Range-Viper 1234), or upgraded from DCs to OCs.

Range-Vipers generally report to Skull Buster, who reports to Artemis. Rock-Vipers are Range-Vipers specially trained for work in the Mountains.

Logs

Red Rangers

In 2012, several squads of Range-Vipers were assigned to Red Shadows under the command of Artemis. They were given new uniforms and rechristened the Red Rangers.
