In my mind it's 1985; Ramjet and Thrust are more intelligent than Sky and Thunder and Dirge could manipulate fear to overcome Star. Skywarp's teleportation technique would be perfect... as long as he actually had that 9 intelligence on his tech-spec. Afraid he's not too bright to use it effectively. Besides, the '84 wings are too basic. '85ers make Meg's comment look like they "are the most powerful jets in the galaxy."
