Long Range Recon
Sniper Rifle, Grenade Launcher
"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.
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.
In 2012 a squadron of Range-Vipers "defected" and were assigned to the Red Shadows under the leadership of Artemis.
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.
