In an unusual move, the camera pulls away from the Mudfighter as it flies in the air. As a result, the viewer can interpret the movement of the camera in two different ways. Either a faster plane flew by the G.I.Joe Mudfighter or the scene was played backwards by accident.
The Cobra HISS II's scene is a dynamic one because the camera starts high, floats to the ground and presents the HISS in a tilted angle, a common camera technique used to create a sense of excitement. At the end of the sequence, the Mudfighter drops bombs near the Cobra tank just as agents pour out of its metal innards, and no one jumped to safety.
