Elite Horseman Tank Driver GIJOE 50 Anniversary 015

Elite Horseman drivers are part of an elite private army hired by the Cobra organization. They specialize in mobile combat tactics. While they prefer tanks for their strength, armor, and weapons they can also turn even the most humble vehicle into a weapon of destruction. They are highly trained in many disciplines and can switch from aggressive infantry fighters to clandestine operatives with ease. An Elite Horseman engages in a missile-to-missile battle against Chuckles who’s driving a F.O.E. Striker vehicle.
