Original Airdate: November 14, 1985

A Joe transport plane is caught in a storm, forcing the pilot to ditch his cargo, a valuable Mauler tank, over the desert. Dusty and Footloose volunteer to stay with the tank until it can be retrieved. They inadvertently parachute onto a Cobra proving ground and discover the evil organizationís latest innovation: a metal alloy thatís impervious to any conventional weapon! With tanks and planes constructed of this alloy, Cobra could attack the Joe team - or anyone else - without fear. With a battalion of Cobras hot on their heels, can Dusty and Footloose survive the track across the hostile desert to warn the Joes? [Notes: in the episode, an impervious alloy is not mentioned; instead, the weapon that Cobra has developed is a tank with a plasma cannon; also, Dusty and Footloose jump out of the plane not to babysit the Mauler but because there is too much wait for the plane to return back at the Joesí base.]
