Tele-Vipers get to have the latest technology in radio telecommunications. Apart from the standard modular radio pack, their gear includes a automatic frequency hopper, cryptography unit, and jamming/anti-jamming equipment. Their helmets come equipped with high-resolution earphones and they get to use dual microphones. That may all be impressive and all but do they get any respect? The helmet's visor is capable of giving LED readouts that's triggered by a computer pack installed onto their radio gear. That readout is visible to anyone he's infront of is a source of jokes for other Cobras.
