"Just look at that thing. It's like a monster from another planet"

General Peters is a character from Pit of Peril. He is a general in the US Army. He was on board the U.S Army Helicopter that accompanied the Sidewinder during its jungle test.


Overseeing the Sidewinder Trials

General Peters, aboard the Copter Watchdog, is happy the test went well of the Army's new Sidewinder vehicle and is about to return to base as disaster strikes, the ground gives way beneath the machine and it falls into a blazing pit.

Rescue Attempt

The Sidewinder had stopped in a clearing in the jungle, that in fact a second world war dumping ground for unwanted military equipment. A crust of earth had formed over the top and spontaneous combustion had caused the wreckage in the pit to burn up. The weight of the Sidewinder was too much for the ground and it caved in taking the Sidewinder with it. Sweeney and his crew were trapped 300 feet below ground.

General Peters organize a rescues attempt, but after two men are badly burnt, he calls in International Rescue for help.

International Rescued

Scott, Brains and Virgil are soon on the scene and swing into action. The Sidewinder is hauled from the pit by the two Recovery Vehicles, and the crew are saved.
