|Function: All-Terrain Assault Drone|
|"We exist to serve."|
BLASTCHARGE STRIKA DRONES are physical imitations of the AUTOBOT GENERAL STRIKA. They possess all of her physical specifications, but are sparkless, and equipped with artificial intelligence. Strika can control them through an experimental Genetronic Translink System developed by Chip Chase and the late WHEELJACK, and further refined by PERCEPTOR. One drone has been granted a spark and the ability to autonomously control the drones in the absence of General Strika.
ABILITIES: The launchers located atop the vehicle mode offer a sustained barrage of terrifying firepower and ultrarockets, while the main cannon shreds anything caught in its sights. The thick armor plates covering both forms deflect most types of enemy artillery. The drones are all equipped with uplinks to the Genetronic Translink System, and are controlled remotely by General Strika. If unavailable, the backup drone can be used, but is only capable of basic comments like "RUN", "CHARGE", OR "DESTROY!"
WEAKNESSES: Strika must maintain the GT System link to the drones in order to control them. If the signal is blocked, the drones can function, but will only do what they were last ordered to do unless the backup drone can be uplinked. This living drone unfortunately has incredibly low intelligence and is easily manipulated.
