Equipped with twin, turreted 8MM electro-static cannons with a range of over 60 miles. Also armed with two armor-piercing, energy-plasma missiles. Armor plating equipped with thermal generators that "burn" through solid rock.

Transformers Tech Specs

The "heroic inside Pretender shell, insecure out of it" riff was also done with Cloudburst; must be a common personality trait. The Vehicle Pretenders were a sort of Triple Changer modified for the Pretender lineup; the shell was an armored ground vehicle, and the Transformer inside turned from a robot into a jet. The other advantage was that the boxier vehicle left more room for the robot, unlike the super-skinny robots that fit inside the human/monster Pretenders, and so both robot and jet were much better-looking. However, the whole point of the Pretenders was to make them look like organic life rather than machine life, so they didn't bother making more than one Vehicle Pretender for each side.
