I've been looking into how Transformers Militaries are organized and comparing them to real world militaries and what their jobs would fall under. The G1 Decepticons are much more clearly organized. Probably because they're a formal military while the Autobots generally aren't. It also should be considered by the time they've gotten to Earth both armies are clearly diminished in numbers. Like seriously just counting the toy line both sides are only a few hundred each. Decepticons Megatron: Leader Shockwave: Military Operations Commander (old function) or Scientist (new function) Soundwave and Cassettes: Communications/Intelligence Network (with some serving as muscle or covert ops. like Rumble, Frenzy, Overkill, and Ravage) The rest of the lookalikes Seekers: Air Force Reflectors: Ground Forces: The basic grunts who cover light infantry, medics, reconnaissance, security/guard duty, laborers (I did some research and they've been used in a lot of different ways from the toy-line, cartoons, and comics) Battlechargers: Ground Forces: main duo are Shock Troopers (so this might be their particular branch of the ground forces) Clones: Not sure I kind of want to add them to the Combined Arms group below since the two we have would be a ground and air team. Since they went ahead and made Battlechargers into a the ground force equivalent of the Seekers in Devastation I'd like to see something similar with the Clones. I mean they're called the Clones! They're basically asking to be made into army builders! They'd be the mooks of wild/natural areas (jungle, desert, mountain, etc.) unsuited for vehicle modes. Shockwave's experiments (DW comics) Duocons, Triple-Changers, and Sixshot: Combined Arms (nearest analogue I found that could match, otherwise they'd just be listed as super soldiers created by Shockwave to make transformers with multiple alt-modes) The Sub-Groups Insecticons: Information Warfare Unit (main trio at least, Venom and Chop Shop could work with this too, but I guess Ransack and Barrage would be their muscle) Firecons: Flamethrower Unit Triggercons: Gunner/Artillery Unit Constructicons: Engineering Unit Stunticons: Urban Warfare Unit Combaticons: Commando/Special Forces Unit (could also qualify as a combined arms unit since they have land, air, and space force members) Predacons: Jungle Warfare Unit (and the Counter-Dinobot Unit, yes they needed a special unit just for the Dinobots) Terrorcons: Terrorism Unit Seacons: Naval Force Unit Trypticon: Assault Base I wasn't sure how to place the Pretenders and various Masters into this since they're rather diverse groups and allied by their gimmicks rather than alt-mode or function, but I could see Thunderwing, Scorponok, and Skystalker at least being the types to form their own splinter factions and go off to do their own thing while Megatron of course leads the main army.
