Special Missions #17

B.A.T.S. are the perfect Cobra Troopers. They never question orders, complain about the chow, shirk duty, or surrender. They require no leave-time, sick-pay, or benefits of any kind, and they are cheap and east to replace. On the other hand, B.A.T.S. do not react very well to changes in field conditions, nor do they discrimintae between targets. They will shoot at anthing that moves, be it friend, for, or animal. They also have an unfortunate tendency to burst into flame when hit from behind...

"B.A.T.S. are dangerous to everybody. They'll shoot, bayonet, or kick anything in sight. Cobra Infantrymen don't like to be on the same battlefield with B.A.T.S. When a Cobra unit is losing a battle they will dispense B.A.T.S. into the midst of the firefight in order to evacuate the area easily."

Shockwave was the youngest member of the Detroit Police Department S.W.A.T. Team, and the holder of two citations for bravery when he signed up for, and was accepted by the Joe Team. When asked why he left a promising career to work longer hours for less money, kicking down doors on better armed adversaries, Shockwave replied, "What, you think I do this for the money."

"Everybody on a S.W.A.T. team has a specific job, like in a choir. Choirs have tenors, baritones, altos, etc. S.W.A.T. teams have sharpshooters, climbers, and "inside men". Shockwave is the door kicker. He's first inside and the first to find out how bad it really is. He's also a half-decent tenor when his voice is in shape..."

Orphaned at the age of three by a drunken driver, Hit & Run grew up in a county institution from which he escaped with alarming regularity, climbing down sheer walls and running for miles across the plains in the middle of the night. When asked what he was running away from, he replied, "I'm not running away from anything, I'm practicing." He went from the custody of the county directly into the Army.

"Infantrymen don't march. They run. They run to get to the battle, they run during the battle, and they run to get away from the battle. The Army doesn't call it running. They call the first one "advancing", the second, "maneuvering", and the last, "disengaging." Hit & Run calls it running, and he's real good at it."
