The Terror-Drome is a small pre-prefab fortress, sold by Cobra to third world countries and developing nations for defense. Cobra personnel are required to run the Terror-Dromes, providing ways for Cobra to infiltrate the country. Two Cobra officers, Dr. Mindbender and the Baroness, would have the chance to reflect that it was not designed to deflect a ground assault. A Terror-Drome located on Cobra Island is the site of many important events in issue #46. Issue #56 features a battle for control of a Terror-Drome located in the fictional country of Sierra Gordo. Despite the efforts of Tomax and Xamot and an explosive trap, the Joes gain possession of the Terror-Drome, and begin dismantling it. The crew includes Tripwire, Recondo, Roadblock, Flint and Scarlett. Using explosives and a self-made loading device, the pieces were sorted and, according to Cobra spies, loaded on a train. The train was destroyed soon after it left, but it was a decoy, as Flint had sacrificed his uniform to make a dummy pilot. This allowed the Joes to remove the technology safely. It was acceptable to the Joes to lose some of the pieces as a majority of a typical Terror-Drome were three repeating sections. The pieces the Joes retrieve are seen in issue #57 being analyzed by Mainframe, Flash and Dial-Tone. Clues lead to M.A.R.S., the munitions company controlled by Destro. Destro assists a Joe team in retrieving Terror-Drome plans held by Major Bludd, who was impersonating Destro, and he had been striving to steal the plans for himself. In issue #68, the dozens of Terror-Dromes littering the countryside of the fictional Frusenland, were used to artificially incite the citizens to riot and thus increase Cobra's sales of weapons even further. One of the Battleforce 2000 team members discovers that loud music assists in neutralizing the angry feelings and a counter-offensive is now possible. The group then neutralizes all of the Terror-Dromes in Frusenland. In issue #69, a Terror-Drome and its Firebat are destroyed by one of Destro's pilots. All the Cobra soldiers still inside the facility are killed. This did not stop the Terror-Drome efforts. Later, Clutch and Rock & Roll would assist Canadian police officers in intercepting another shipment of Terror-Drome pieces.
