Ever wonder if the Techspec Ranks had/need names? This popped into my head, oh a while ago now, and I've been pondering it on a back-burner in my mind ever since. Below is the best I've come up with. I've gone for militaristic 'delegation of command' theme, surely one 'Commander' isn't enough for an army. Logically he'd have Generals and Commanders under him, and he'd be more the 'Supream Commander' chapy. Anyho, anyone got any ideas? Also not sure if 'Bots and 'Cons would have the same names or not. (eagerly awaits Doc's list of silly names for techspecs ranks!)
With the above, you see that, for example, the original Ark crew, described as some of the best Autobot warriors, are all of decent rank (although I'm not sure a rank of 5 fits characters such as Brawn or Cliffjumper who are clearly warriors not, no disrespect to them, leaders), A sub-lieutenant being in charge of perhaps a small squad (such as Hound in the IDW-verse). And the likes of Springer would be an 8 (not the 7 on his original techspecs) to reflect he's the 'commander' of a larger, specialised unit. Whereas your Grimlocks, Shockwaves and Prowls are the Generals under their 'Supream Leader'. Also within this structure is the capacity for 'honourary' (can't spell) ranks. Such as Skids's rank of 8 and Ratchet's 7. They wouldn't, necissaryily, command in the field, but have a respected, important possition within the army, scientist and medical officer respectively. Right, I'm rambeling now. Comes from not planning a post ahead of writing it!
