NIGHT-VIPER 

1991

Cobra Night Fighter

A Night-Viper's helmet is a miracle of electronic-miniaturisation. Aside from it's wide-angle third-generation, image-intensifier, directional sound amplifier and laser range-finder the helmet boasts a passive infrared detector that can spot the body heat of a squirrel at 100 yards. The Night-Viper's helmet, combat suit and weapons are mostly made of synthetic composites that reduce the wearer's own infrared signature and defy most ground radars.

"Night-Vipers are always in training and never see daylight. They live in windowless barracks with no interior lights. They spend mpst of their time trying to sneak up on each other. All you have to do to knock one out is to shine a flashlight in his face and burn out his sensors. The problem is,you have to find him first."
