Inspired by the dedicated men and women who serve in the elite special-forces branches of the U.S. Military is Monster Jam’s second military-themed truck: Soldier Fortune Black Ops. The first Soldier FortuneTM made its debut in 2015 driven by Monster Jam veteran Chad Fortune. With the addition of the new Soldier Fortune Black Ops Monster Jam truck United States Army combat veteran Tony Ochs was selected to pilot the incredible new machine in Monster Jam competition. Ochs debut in Soldier Fortune Black Ops came in January 2016 at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY, and Soldier Fortune Black Ops competed in the Young Guns Shootout for the first time at Monster Jam World Finals XVII. The original Soldier Fortune is a camouflaged, tank-inspired truck that pays tribute to the armed forces. Soldier Fortune Black Ops pays homage to the elite branches of the military and its majestic black coloring is designed to signify the special operations that these committed military personnel embark on every day. Ochs is a ten year veteran of the United States Army where he most recently performed the duties of an Apache helicopter Crew Chief. Ochs' military service also included tours in South Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
