AIR RAID hates surprises; he prefers a solid plan and an opportunity to destroy targets from miles away before they can even see him, much less have time to sound the alarm or defend themselves. “The sounds of explosions and the screams of the dying are all the early-warning my enemies need,” he reasons. His tactics are cautious, and some might even call them cowardly, but never in earshot of Air Raid if they know what’s good for them. His passive, serious personality supports either viewpoint. At the core of his actions lies the one goal that drives him above all else - he wants to destroy his enemies and defeat them utterly! The upside of his behavior is he seldom gets into situations greater than he can handle.
Air Raid can fly at speeds of up to Mach 2.5 and has a range of 1500 miles. He can shoot air-to-air heat-seeking missiles and, in robot mode, carries a torque rifle whose beam can apply up to 80,000 psi of rotational force to any object. Only the strongest materials can withstand warping and breaking under such pressure. He combines with his fellow Aerialbots to form the giant robot known as Superion.
MUX Shattered Glass History:
In 1985, to combat rampant Autobot aggression on Cybertron, the Decepticons attempt to engineer a new squadron of aerial fighters. Jetfire was the prototype. Within a few months of being brought online, however, Jetfire learns enough about the Autobots to know where his true allegiance lies. He defects to the Autobots a mere five months after creation. The Old One, deciding the Autobots need more air power as well, sacrifice five Autobot "volunteers" and use their bodies and reformatted cores to create the Aerialbots, using technology brought to the Autobots by Jetfire.
The Ark left to attack Earth, and then Cybertron entered a zone where no one could escape the planet. Evil Junkions attacked, led by Evil Ultra Magnus. Prime is gone with the Ark, so the Autobots are led by Evil Elita-One. All Raid has to do is prey on the weak like a good Evil Bot. =) Air Raid remains a valuable, reliable, member of Autobot Aerospace.
