    when i was watching transformers 2 for the first time,
    i noticed that lennox and epps got new ranks,
    but i couldnt remember which ones nor can i tell
    how much each rank is higher than their previous.

    also, i couldnt tell what the autobot chain of command is
    especially after ironhide died.

    can anyone help? all this popped into my head while i was being
    meritoriously promoted in my NJROTC Unit
    from Third Class to Petty Officer First Class.

    Lennox went from Captain to Major to Lieutenant Colonel (O3 to O5) - that's Lieutenant to Commander for you Navy pogues :lol 

    Epps pretty much stayed a Master Sergeant in the first two flicks as I recall.

    Epps was USAF, and was Tech Sergeant in the first, and promoted to Master Sergeant in the 2nd. In DOTM he'd retired from both the Air Force and NEST.

    Optimus is the leader, 2nd in command was Jazz, then Ironhide, now Sideswipe if him giving commands when Optimus isn't around during Chicago is any indication. Ratchet is the Chief Medical Officer, although he's only medic anyway.

    Bee, Mirage, and the Twins are just soldiers. Wreckers would be too, but they aren't usually part of the active Autobot force.

    Whoever has been around the longest basically. Which means Ratchet would be next in chain of command.

    It always seemed like a Prime-led autocracy in the movies, but I was certain there was more detail on it in the comics when they talked about arcee and the twins...

    Current Autobots chain of command, survivors after Chicago Battle.( in my opinion) :

    Leader: Optimus Prime
    2nd in command: Sideswipe
    Chief Medical Officer: Ratchet
    Scout: Bumblebee
    Spy: Mirage
    Special Ops team: The Wreckers

    It was Sideswipe who was leading the Autobots in the Chicago battle right before Optimus came swooping in. Earlier, he actually gave Ratchet an order, and also was ordering Que to roll out already when he was giving the humans his latest kill-a-ma-jigs. Signs point to Sideswipe being the new second in command.
