As seen in Triple Trouble, Blitzwing is an undeniably good strategist (despite his misinterpretation of American football) who is often portrayed as a jerk. This half-tank, half-jet menace also has a brillant mind when he's up to using it. In short, he is as full of surprises as the name Triple Changer would suggest, and is never taken for granted by Megatron/Galvatron.



BLITZWING

Decepticon Insignia
ALLEGIANCE: DECEPTICON
FUNCTION: GROUND & AIR COMMANDO (or COMMANDER; ?)
FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS #29

"Destroy first, think later."

Profile: As a Triple Changer, Blitzwing's ability to rapidly transform from tank mode to jet fighter mode makes him one of the most lethally effective Decepticon warriors. Not only are foes confused by his talent, but rarely are they prepared to fight him in a second form after fighting him in the first one. And Blitzwing certainly relishes changing form. His favorite tactic is to dive at a target - living or otherwise - as a jet, change at the last moment to a tank, and then smash into the target just as he lands. This hardly ever fails to defeat a foe or amuse Blitzwing. He likes to think of himself as having a sense of humor, although the things that make him laugh are typically cruel and harmful to others. He's loud-mouthed, belligerent and brash- wonderful qualities for a commando, terrible for all those who have to be around him.

Abilities: As a jet fighter, Blitzwing can fly at mach 2.7 with a range of 1500 miles. He carries heat-seeking concussion missiles. As a tank, he can traverse most terrain, however rugged, and can achieve a speed of 28 mph. His track-mounted cannon fires an explosive shell 3.5 miles that can level a 5-story brick building. In robot mode he uses an electron scimitar which can short-circuit any electrical device with a touch of its blade, and a gyro-blaster rifle, which disrupts the sense of balance of anyone it hits for 30 minutes.

Weaknesses: Blitzwing sometimes gets his circuits scrambled, which results in him getting stuck in mid-transformation between forms.

Stats:

Personal Notes: 1. Blitzwing's tech spec has him listed as a "GROUND & AIR COMMANDER", while his Marvel Comics' TF Universe profile sticks him with the more appropriate "GROUND & AIR COMMANDO". Which ever one you prefer to use or like better is up to you. 2. Blitzwing was the first toy tank (of my knowledge) to have a Operation: Desert Storm paint scheme. My fanfic character Desert Thunder is a repaint of Blitzwing with the purple parts colored brown and the beige pieces given a brown and white 'speckling', like the real Desert Storm hardware.
