When the Powermasters were introduced, they were created along the traditional Transformers lines: Autobots are ground-based, Decepticons are air-based. Unfortunately, there were only seven Powermasters altogether, so they didn't get much time to flesh the lineup out. The Powermasters were an attempt to extend the "master" line of toys when the Headmasters and Targetmasters were being shrunk in size, but without a cartoon to help sell your toys in America, there's only so much you can do.
Darkwing, a dark gray Panavia Tornado, was introduced in the Transformers comics in issue #42, along with the other Powermasters, and appeared again from time to time, almost always together with Dreadwind. In the Japanese cartoon "Transformers: Masterforce", Darkwing was named Hydra.
