GI Joe #196Writer: Larry Hama
Penciler: S.L. Gallant
Summary:Dogfight's Mudfighter, the last plane in the air, crashes to the ground. Dogfight is immediately taken captive by rebels and placed with the other "air support" captives (Ghostrider and Skystriker). Flint's "Alpha Team" (Flint, Lady Jaye, Roadblock, Mutt, Rock & Roll, Torpedo, Gung Ho, Dial-Tone, Zap and Shockwave) are taken below the Terrordrome into a mine. Stalker's "Bravo Team" (Stalker, Downtown, Leatherneck, Beachhead, Low-light, Bazooka and Lift-ticket) is being held captive at "Raboc" lumber yard. All three teams (plus Grunt), begin to take mental notes and note how regimented their captors are.
Mainframe calls in a favor with a commercial airfreight company and the GI Joe "Relief team" arrives in Sierra Gordo. Consisting of Cross-Country, Wild Card, Hit & Run, Char-broil, Spirit Iron-Knife, Alpine, Lightfoot and Clutch (with Ace helping the commercial pilots), they hit the ground in the Mean Dog, easily blowing away the rebel's security team at the airfield.
In the Sierra Nevadas, "Gramps" hikes up to tell Snake-Eyes and Scarlett all the news of Sierra Gordo. Finally, at Rancho Corba, Cobra Commander's satellite feed shows him that another team of Joes has left the Pit, meaning even less personnel are around to guard against an attack...
