FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 17
flies, crash it."
Mid-air collisions are Ramjet's specialty. Whether the
target is an opponent or not makes little difference -
Ramjet will crash him or it just for the pure fun of it.
He's built to survive such crashes, which is probably his
greatest asset, since hardly anyone in flight would
expect a jet fighter to purposely try to collide with
him. These one-sided jousts make him a terror without
equal in the skies. As he often boasts, "The skies
are my castle, and I like to live alone."
In jet form, Ramjet has a nose module that can absorb and
withstand an impact with a 3 foot-thick concrete wall at
a speed of 1500 mph. The rest of his form is not quite as
durable, but is still very resistant to impact. He can go
as fast as Mach 2.8. He carries two cluster bomb missile
launchers and two laser beam rifles. He's also very
durable in robot mode.
Ramjet's tendency to aim at neutral targets often results
in his creating new enemies, a consequence about which he
rarely shows concern. Although very resistant to impact,
too many crashes can take their toll on Ramjet's body,
particularly his internal mechanical workings.
