Hiss Tank.com has just received new information on upcoming G.I. Joe Modern Era Vehicles. The new Water Moccasin and Sky Hawk vehicles shown at SDCC 2008 have received name changes.
G.I. Joe Ghost H.A.W.K. with Lift Ticket
The Ghost H.A.W.K. aircraft neutralizes the need for a conventional airfield. With a simple rotation of its twin turbofan engines, this V/STOL can take-off or land vertically from a short runway.
Cobra Sting Raider with Copperhead
Able to slither easily through shallow marshes and swamps, the STING RAIDER craft gives COBRA forces the advantage of establishing bases deep in murky bayous. The tough hull withstands contact with branches and other submerged objects that lurk in the swamp.

Lift Ticket??? Oh come on Hasbro.. you got to do better than that! I will put any other Joe in the "Sky Hawk" than Lift Ticket. He can be my damned mechanic for all I care.

Sting Raider? Sounds like Lara Croft's position if she freelanced for the Joes. Oh well, it'll always be the Water Moccasin to us!
That Copperhead's color scheme looks terrible though. Glad I got him in the comic pack.

Can Hasbro NOT keep up with their liscenses? Why would they let stuff like this slide when they just had them a couple years ago for the Con? Phailure Hasbro.

Wasn't Sting Raider what someone saw in an early product listing (maybe walmart) some time back? I think everyone expected it would be the Stinger. Well, I would rather have a Moccasin though it would be nice to have a vehicle for the Stinger Drivers from the 5 packs.....

For some reason i dont really mind the name change to the Sky Hawk. Ghost hawk doesnt sound too bad IMO, but the water moccasin name change not what i expected. Think they could have done better with that one.

I like the glass on the Sky Hawk. It looks like the underside of the Water Moccasin is gray on this version.
A new Cobra Stinger would bee cool!
