Come on. I know we will mostly find those faceless goons toting shoulder rocket launchers and fight with hit and run tactics; just like any plausible terrorist group. But any victory they have is a result of greater numbers and/or being able to conduct really effective ambushes. If they are really smart, they know how to make an effective retreat. However, in direct combat with either 'cons or 'bots they will go down hard. So do you think at some point the series MECH will train a few "specialists" or "elites", to fight any Cybertronian from up-close or afar on either land, air, or water? The super soldier origin can either be fully technological (ala Iron Man), biochemical (ala Captain America), or both. Personally, I would make all of the MECH commanders super soldiers (especially Silas). Only each one is geared towards a specific role (Silas would just straight up personal combined arms combat expert).
