Ironhide Protect Black
Function: Cybertron Guard Member
Motto: “Circuits are no substitute for gut!”
Ironhide is a member of the Cybertrons and maintains a lot of influence. He has a youthful enthusiasm and tends to be quite militant. One of his duties is guarding Supreme Commander Convoy. After battles, Ironhide is conscious of how the conflict affects the Earth. His duty not only has him disguised from the criminal earthlings, but also from the Destron army. He covered himself in a jet-black colour in order to increase his protection capacity of Convoy. His fellow Cybertron soldier companions have whispered that he got the idea from Men in Black style vehicles, however he has seen a few black pick up trucks around town.
He has increased his trithyllium steel skin's durability by coating his armour with a composite gel metal. This allows him to immediately self repair minor injuries. His mobile artillery has increased 25% allowing him to protect the Supreme Commander Convoy with ease and enabling a swift counter offensive. He can handle the roughest of terrains using his three legged marauder mode.
