Background by: Michael S. Choi
The VAMP II was designed as mobile anti-tank platform with four laser guided Hellfire derivatives with a crew of two to three. a driver, a gunner, and vehicle commander. With six kilometer range of it's weapons system the Vamp can usually be counted on delivering very accurate long range fire while armored assets such as tanks, APCs, and iFVs can close the gap. Unfortunately due to the cost of its missiles the vamp II was never produced in any extraordinary amounts- especially when GI Joe equipment could be counted on being adopted by the US military and friendly forces.
Still working in conjunction with FAV/FSVs (Chenowith dune buggies outfitted with weapons) the VAMP and VAMPII along with Hummers provided Joes forces with light mobile vehicles with a disgusting amount of punch. Necessary to deal with Cobra HISS APCs (mainstay of that organization's army and a very capable of infantry fighting vehicle that also doubled as a light to medium tank).
