    Although Longarm is a crane, he still retains Shockwave's tank armour. Other Primes, especially Optimus, Sentinel, and Rodimus don't have this type of armour. Because of this, would you rather consider Longarm the strongest Prime, even though he is the slowest than all three of them?

    We don't know if he's slower or not, or stronger or tougher, even. Though i would assume he's stronger.

    Well, he's a Decepticon, and a Decepticon is inherently stronger than an Autobot, no matter who he's pretending to be.

    From what the series has shown us Decepticons are usually stronger, but given Shockwave has done little except stretch and talk we can't be sure of what his real capabilities are.

    This thread title needs a subject-verb inversion and a question mark

    Well, Sideways, I mean, it's pretty simple. Because semis, cars, buses, pickups, and vans are civilian vehicles, usually there is no need for these type of vehicles to be heavily armoured. But because a tank is a military vehicle, the majority of these vehicles are heavily armoured. So even though Shockwave disguises his tank alt-mode into Longarm's crane alt-mode, he still retains the tank armour that he has right now. Got that, now?

    What do the tech specs say?

    Also, since Longarm doesn't have the fire of righteousness in his heart, it is possible that he will be, in fact, the weakest Prime, according to cartoon logic.

    Even ignoring everything else, strength is not resiliance, which is what armor provides.

    I have to disagree with you there. In any other continuity of TF's that applies, but not in Animated because Prime is only a rank (Sentinel Prime, Longarm Prime, Optimus Prime, etc.), with Magnus as the supreme comander.

    He's an intelligence operative. He's probably not built for a fight, but for infiltration.

    He could probably fight his way out of a tight spot if he had to, but I wouldn't assume Longarm / Shockwave is strong merely because he's a Decepticon.

    Anyways, I'm sure Season 3 will answer this question now the secret seems to be more or less out.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "strongest".
    I'm pretty sure it means "one with the most strength". You seem to give it a different meaning.
