FUNCTION: TACTICAL ANALYSIS
FIRST APPEARANCE: "FIVE FACES OF DARKNESS" PART 4
"Waste not, lose not."
Profile: Ballistic is in charge
of tracking the Decepticon energy reserves. He carefully measures every
expenditure, tallying up the energy use of each and every Decepticon. So
determined is he to preserve their precious resources that he will call for
an immediate withdrawal from a mission should they exceed their alloted budget.
His stingy and downright persnickety ways have earned him a reputation
as a miser, but Ballistic doesn't care about what others think of him. He
will argue the point until the other Decepticons either give up in frustration
or power down completely. For better or for worse, Ballistic always
has the last word.
Abilities: Ballistic transforms
into a transport truck capable of carrying another Decepticon into battle.
He is equipped with a payload of two SRBM's (short-range ballistic
missiles) that travel up to 200 miles. He can also transform into an
auxiliary refueling station with a one-vehicle capacity, and is capable of
linking up directly to Trypticon in city mode. In robot mode, he carries
an energo-magnet gun that collects wasted energy from the immediate vicinity
and redirects it, concentrating it in a single blast. His chest shield
can be used as an omnidirectional radio-controlled boomerang. He combines
with his fellow Invadicons to form Destructor.
Weaknesses: Ballistic's concern
with saving energy can blind him to the big picture. On more than one
occasion, he's ordered a retreat in order to conserve fuel, even though the
Decepticons had the tactical advantage.
