"Bazookas are OK, but I'll take a shoulder-mounted rocket launcher any day!

Fighting Cobra Mega-Monsters calls for powerful weapons and skilled soldiers trained to use them; Mirage is just such a soldier. He's a specialist in heavy weapons armaments including bazookas, AK-47 assault rifles, MAC-10 submachine guns and "ripple-fire" rocket launchers. Mirage was trained by Roadblock, who taught him how to lay down cover fire and launch shoulder-mounted rockets while under an enemy attack. When the Mega-Marines began recruiting men who could handle heavy, high-tech firepower, Mirage was their first choice.
