Captivating Cover – Operation: Weapons Disaster
Weapons Disaster? Holy cow, what a bleak title. I wonder if said disaster is in reference to the Cobra STUN, one of the strangest villainous vehicles of all time, and also the sort of mad contraption that only could have come about in the 80s. After all, it’s the same decade that produced this.
Not to be outdone, the Joes join the fray in their own bit of two-wheeled whimsy, the LCV. Whenever I see one of these things portrayed in media, I have to think that the Joes intended the main function of the ride not as a below-the-radar infiltration device, but as a way to distract the enemy by keeping him doubled over in laughter.Seeing the two vehicles together on the battlefield makes me wonder if the story might be set in a Bizarro World alternate universe, in which they were more popular than their HISS and RAM counterparts.
