    I know in the first movie Ratchet was the Autobot's medic but did the Decepticons have one? I think Blackout could have been a medic because:

    His vehicle form had search and rescue on it
    Second he sort of severed as a support role in the mission city battle
    And he had lots of scanners

    I know he had lots of weaponry but still he could be a medic or less a support trooper.

    Decepticons love being ironic with their alt modes.

    I doubt he picked that alt because of that. He just wanted something that could sneak into that base, just a pity the staff there spotted it had the numbers of a craft that had already been shot down (can't remember if it was shot down by humans or if Blackout shot it down to scan and replace - and don't anyone come in here citing comics at me with an 'answer' to that).
    It's not like Barricade picked his cop car alt mode because he wants to uphold the law.
    ^ That probably, and for Barricade too.

    Heh, so true. Like instead of "protect and serve" written on Barricade's alt mode, its "Punish and enslave". Wonder, if a cop did that, how many criminals who see that will think twice about committing another crime.

    Most likely it was Scalpel from the second film. They are also shown to have mini-transformers insects in the third film which are rehealing Megatron.

    Maybe those mini things grow up to become Scalpels. :)

    The toy's bio pretty much says he's the main Decepticon doctor.

    And that the majority of the Decepticons prefer not being his patients.

    You bring up an amazing point, they are after all Bio-mechanical. I think one of the original concept arts from the second film depicted a group of bug-like-transformers forming this larger hive creature, would have been nice to see.

    I'm not sure I'd want someone named 'Blackout' performing surgery on me.

    Doctor Blackout: "And now for the most delicate part of this brain surgery. The slightest slip now would instantly kill the patien-*"

    i mean like sneaking onto a base and getting info like he did in the first movie. And Scorponok seems like the perfect assassin/spy bot to me

    "Infiltrate": enter or gain access to (an organization, place, etc.) in order to acquire something (object, information, etc.). AKA sneak into, permeate, penetrate, invade. Size has nothing to do with it.

    Heck, "sneaking" doesn't even have to be associated with it. Blackout f**king blew apart a military base to infiltrate it and gain access to sensitive government information and proceeded to escape as if nothing happened. And he did that all while being bigger than a house and killing hundreds of people.

    Blackout had "Search and Rescue" on him? I thought he was a USSOCOM MH-53 Pavelow, with the designation 4500-X?

    He flew right into the USSOCOM base, and the only way they were tipped off that something was wrong is that 4500-X was a Pavelow that was mysteriously shot down before the events of the film. If that hadn't happened no one would've realized that something was amiss.

    That's the beauty of being a robot in disguise, no?

    I know people don't like basing speculation solutions on video games, but Long Haul's ability in ROTF's game is Combat Repair...

    I've always imagined that for some reason.
