EELS are proficient with sophisticated electronic detection gear, the latest in plastic explosives and state-of-the-art, closed circuit self-contained breathing systems. All of this, along with their rigorous underwater training, has made them the most feared creatures to ever swim the sea. If you thought a Great White shark was a fear machine with fins, just picture one equipped with plastic explosives and a spear gun! No ship is safe (not even the D.E.F. Shark DF-1!) when COBRA COMMANDER sends these slimy sea saboteurs on a mission. They just love to string underwater mines in shipping lanes, then wait for the fireworks to send ships down to the bottom, permanently.
