It is generally accepted that single weapons system types are much less effective without the support of the full combined arms team. As such, Cobra integrates Viper assault infantry units into its Armoured Divisions. These troops complement the swift armoured assault by Cobra HISS and other tanks, allowing exploitation of gains and providing a counterpunch to defending infantry.

Operating as an element of Cobra's Heavy Armoured Division is the Viper Armoured Infantry Regiment. Fighting mounted from IFVs/APCs or dismounted as shock infantry, this is the premier assault infantry force in Cobra. The unit identifies strongly with the overwhelming assault ethos of heavy armour warfare and draws Vipers with the most aggressive fighting spirit in the Legions.

Though well regarded for their emphasis on attack, some armoured commanders are unsettled by the singular mindset of the unit and prefer to have the more well-rounded Viper Dragoons at their disposal. The latter tend to be more versatile during the changing circumstances encountered in combat.

It isn't without some merit that other Cobra troops refer to members of the unit as "The VAIN" (albeit never to their faces).
