New Vehicle Images And Details Revealed For G.I. JOE: RETALIATION
After the jump, check out some new images and details for three new vehicles that will make an appearance in Jon Chu's upcoming follow-up to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Thanks to the guys over at General's Joes, we now have a new batch of details for the Jon Chu-directed film G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which showcases three new vehicles which will appear in the film, such as a new version of the Cobra Hiss Tank. For more details, head on over to the source.
One such toy incorporated into the film is the COBRA AIR BOAT. This massive and ominous looking boat is loosely based on the water moccasin toy with added elements that included twin engines, counter-rotating blades and enough horsepower to push it across dry land.
Inspired by another classic G.I. JOE/Hasbro toy and sure to excite fans from every age group, the film features a new version of the iconic COBRA HISS TANK. To create this massive vehicle the production team started with a M548 base that took 12 weeks to build before adding the outer shell and flourish of a cockpit and extra weaponry.
A significantly smaller but faster tank seen in the film is the Joe Colton tank that ROADBLOCK uses to mow down his enemies. Although seemingly less formidable than the HISS TANK, the Joe Colton tank’s power comes in its speed and agility. Considered to go as fast as a ZR1 Corvette in the grass, the Colton tank has 750 horse power and can go up to 65 mph. In addition, the tank is outfitted with rocket launchers as well as a 100 lbs. 50 cal mounted on top that the ROADBLOCK character utilizes in a show of his great ingenuity and physical strength.
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki, DJ Cotrona, Ray Park, Ray Stevenson, RZA, Bruce Willis, and directed by Jon Chu, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is set for a
June 29, 2012 March 29, 2013 release in 3D.
