Battle Force 2000

Battle Force 2000 is the walking, breathing proving grounds for tomorrow's battlefield technology today! Highly-trained specialists entrusted with one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art prototypes, their mission is to support GI Joe and field-test experimental equipment under battlefield conditions.

Overall, Battle Force 2000 features the following personnel and equipment:
