World of Tanks: G.I. Joe and Cobra Join the Battle

5 min read

Created by HasbroG.I. Joe is one of the most popular action figure lines in the world. Generations of kids in the U.S. and beyond played with them and were captivated by the struggle of the international elite spec ops team against their sworn enemies of Cobra, a multi-faceted and masterfully coordinated global criminal network. Uncounted millions of battles that have been fought with plastic action figures (often commanded by present-day online tankers) have elevated G.I. Joe to the status of a cultural phenomenon.

And now, one global cultural phenomenon is about to meet another. The famous adversaries from G.I. Joe and Cobra have come to World of Tanks to settle their scores in their impressive new vehicles, the B.T.T. (having the same stats as the TS-5) and the B.O.A. (having the same stats as the T-54 first prototype).

The exteriors of the B.T.T. and the B.O.A. are non-historical; their display can be toggled on or off at any time in your Game Settings, under the General tab.

Legendary Tank Decals

The classic armoured vehicles depicted on the decals in our G.I. Joe and Cobra packages are instantly recognizable to tankers who played with G.I. Joe action figures when they were kids.

G.I. Joe M.O.B.A.T. (Motorized Battle Tank, also Multi-Ordnance Battle Tank) first appeared in toy stores across the U.S. in 1982. In every box with a plastic vehicle (clearly resembling a real-life contemporary main battle tank), there was a figure of the driver named Steeler.

Cobra H.I.S.S. (High Speed Sentry), complete with a figure of a driver, was first released in U.S. toy stores in 1983. This futuristic war machine was armed with double Diablo cannons you could elevate and swivel.

Representing a different technological era, the M.O.B.A.T. and the H.I.S.S. didn’t make it into World of Tanks as playable armoured vehicles. Instead, we’re introducing the B.O.A. and the B.T.T., which also embody the character of their respective factions to the full.

Awesome Inscriptions and Emblems

Getting the G.I. Joe and Cobra inscriptionand emblems for your favourite vehicles requires you to complete two sets of special missions, available from March 12 through March 26. Each set of missions will net you 9 customization elements from one of the factions, plus Personal Reserves. Those who obtain a package will have to complete a single mission to claim each set of these rewards.
