|Function: Diversionary Tactician
He is the first Cybertron to be reactivated in the Binaltech Project. Retaining the designs for quantum computer in his brain core and main weapons, everything has been redesigned with the help of Japan’s Fujii Heavy Industry Inc. and STi, allowing Smokescreen to possess all his original abilities with enhanced power. In vehicle mode, Smokescreen can reach a top speed of 230km per hour and can generate a smoke cloude from his tail pipe. Among his fellow Cybertrons, Smokescreen has been one to dispel any anxiety and apprehension. Now reborn in his new Binaltech form, he has retained this trait and instills confidence in both the Binaltech team as well as his fellow Cybertron warriors.

The Story of Binaltech (from Smokescreen's and Lambor's booklets)
The year is 2003, a little more than a decade since Transformers and Humankind made first contact. The world went through big changes after that, construction of Cybertron City, formation of EDC (Earth Defense Corps.) and space travel. Mankind and Autobots (Cybertrons) have adapted to each other's lifestyle and now sharing a common destiny. Utilizing a techno-virus "Cosmic-Rust", the Decepticons (Destrons) managed to damage most of the Autobots to extend beyond repair. Using these tactics, most of the Autobot Earth's defense force fell. At the same time, Megatron was close to conquering Cybertron and managed to cut off the Autobot's supply line between Earth and Cybertron. With a diminishing force, low supply and no reinforcements, the Autobots and mankind are almost on the verge of defeat when EDC came up with a last resort, "Develop man-made Transformer", thus Project Binaltech was launched immediately. With the coordination of the mother computer, Teletran-1, the world's leading industries and research facilities began to pool their resources to develop a humanoid transformable machine so as to counter this crisis. The result is a range of Earth made robot mold. By transferring the sparks of the damaged and infected Autobots to these new bodies, the warriors were reborn. This is the story how mankind and Cybertron's last hope, Binaltech Transformers were born.
