    Did optimus actually ever find out? At least imo I believe optimus never found out iron hide died at least not during the film. At no point do we see any of the other autobots mention it to him which is why there was no mourning but I do believe optimus did feel that something was wrong. You can see it in his eyes when he returns to nest like someone was missing. This is why there was no mourning or at least no emotional scene with optimus over ironhides death. At least imo.

    Don't know how he could not have known. Since Ironhide was notably absent for the rest of the film when usually he's right behind him.

    In one of the comics/novel Optimus is alerted by Rachet (Correct me if I'm wrong here) that Ironhide had just recently died, and Optimus is on his way...But in the film Optimus was alerted 10mins before the Highway chase scene started...

    Even if he did he never really had a chance to mourn him. He got one moment to witness NEST's destruction and then immediately pursued Sentinel.

    Presumably he would have figured out when Ironhide never showed up to leave Earth or when he wasn't present in Chicago.

    One would think so. However if you remember in the 2nd movie just after optimus was killed in the forest iron hide suggested to ratchet that maybe they should leave and ratched replied thats not what optimus would want. Perhaps optimus just thought iron hide may have left? He had no real obligation to stay on earth just because he was optimus's 2nd in command.

    Besides, what did you think he was doing before he left nest to go find sentinel.

    Regardless he would have asked where Ironhide was when his buddy and second in command wasn't present. And since Bee and Lennox saw him die, they'd certainly say something.

    Well, yeah, that is an obligation.

    Optimus isn't an idiot. He knew Ironhide was dead almost immediately.

    Maybe Lennox just felt it wasnt in his place to break the news to optimus and was expecting someone like ratchet to. Even though Optimus and lennox have a certain level of trust now between them I dont think he wanted to interfair with autobot affairs.

    seeing as iron hide got a cap busted in his ass by megs on the way to autobot city and then megs ends up causing fatal injuries to optimus and then optimus dies shortly after....NO.

    it is not like perceptor did a updated casualty list with prime as prime is sucking wind going to the great spark in the sky.

    Heh, reminds me of that parody where Optimus wakes up in Return of Optimus Prime and starts giving his old team orders only to be told they were all dead.
