So we have the Target Exclusive Blue HISS with Cobra Driver.
We have the Black HISS with HISS Commander.
We have single carded HISS Drivers.
And we have the upcoming Target Exclusive Ultimate Battle Pack Red HISS with HISS Tank Driver and Cobra Vehicle Gunner.
So what do you do with all of those when troop building?
This is how I will set it up (since the Red HISS isn't out yet).
Blue HISS - Cobra Commander's personal HISS Tank, the Cobra Driver is his personal driver.
Red HISS - The Cobra Tank Division Command HISS. The HISS Tank Driver is the Cobra Tank Division Commander, the Gunner is the gunner of the command HISS. The HISS Tank Driver is the same mold as the normal HISS Driver except has the silver chest, marking him as the overall Cobra Tank Division Commander.
Black HISS - The main tank. The Tank Commander is the gunner, the HISS Driver (single carded) is the driver.
I missed the Blue HISS the first time around, so will only end up getting one of those, that's why it's not part of the normal troop. The Red HISS, cause it's in the Battle Pack will only end up getting one of those as well. The Black HISS will be as many as I feel like buying, as long as can find the single carded Driver to go with each one.
So how do you deal with the Rainbow Coalition of HISS?
Note: The Arctic HISS doesn't count, since it's part of Cobra's Arctic squad.

I put my Red HISS Drivers into my Crimson Army and they drive/command the Crimson HISS with a CG in the turrent
The Blue HISS Commanders drive/command the Black HISS and at the moment I have the Bazooka Troopers in the turrent
I don't have the Blue HISS but thats a good idea of having that as CC's personal Tank. I use the TRU orange/gold Rattler as CC's personal aircraft

The blue baroness or v2 might be a good fit for the blue hiss, but I like your idea of having that as cc personal hiss!!

I am old school.
Red HISS Driver goes in the Black HISS Tank. Cobra Blue Officer mans the cannons, and Cobra Troopers ride on the rear platform. This is the premier Cobra weapon system for my Cobra display 1982-1985.
Blue HISS Driver goes in the Target Blue HISS Tank. I custom created a Cobra Gunner with the Legions Pack Cobra Commander. I took off the Cobra Commander faceplate, and installed a Cobra Trooper red mask. Cobra Vipers ride on the back platforms of the Blue HISS Tanks.
I classify the Target Blue HISS as Cobra HISS Mark II, which is meant for the 1986+ Cobra Forces.
I do not have the Crimson Guard HISS Tank, but if I get one, I will probably put a Red HISS Driver in the cockpit, and a Crimson Guard Trooper in the gun turret.
Crimson Guardsmen will ride on the rear platform.

I use a red HISS for Crimson Guards, a blue HISS for Night Watch, and black HISS for regular Cobra forces.

I'm somewhat old school as well. I have one blue and 2 black. The Blue Commander drives the blue tank. The Red drivers drive the two black tanks. I actually have four of the Target drivers (thanks to ebay), but I'm planning to use them for some customs.

This will probably sound silly,but in my Cobra army the Baroness leads the Crimson guards and any other red trooper.Destro hangs out with her but he has the Iron Grenadiers to command. I was never a fan of Tomax and Zamot.
So on the battlefield the red hiss driver drives the Baroness and her gaurd around. The blue drivers drive the blue shirts and vipers.
