"I see a line of cars and they're all painted black" - Rolling Stones

Hawk has this to say about the Night Force: "When the sun goes down, the GI Joe Night Force squad is ready for action! Night Force is a covert team specializing in nighttime surveillance and defense operations. Missions conducted in the darkness have special problems, which the Night Force has overcome with enhanced skills, sophisticated hardware, and advanced technology.

"They use the element of surprise to vanquish the enemy, striking under cover of darkness and disappearing into the night, mission accomplished!" Marketing concerns aside, the Joes' Night Force has been a tradition for years. Ever since the first group was assembled back in '88, peopled with some of the Joes' best nighttime operatives, those guys who are not only good at fighting in the night - but enjoy it!
