(OOC: All right, I hope that you have read over the rules on RPG combat here. I know the staff will be watching us)
Thunderwing walks over the surface of the badlands, looking over the harsh landscape. The pools of hot magma and the heaps of smashed metal bring a certain calm to the Decepticon warlord. He has dismissed his troops away so that he may be alone with his thoughts so to plan the next Decepticon attack.
Astonished that stalking the Wasteland paid off this well, he had located an unguarded decepticon warlord, it was his lucky day, his past in the decepticons had told him that this was Thunderwing, and he insisted himself that he needed to deal with this menace, he looked over from his perch on top of one of the scrap piles and cloaked using his camouflage knowing that this distance away he was almost impossible to see without a sniper rifle or energon vision, he removed his bow and notched an arrow with the aim of that arrow at the chest of the decepticon, hoping that with his large target he'd hit something somewhat vital using the element of surprise, he knew that this one shot wouldn't be enough to bring this decepticreep down but as soon as the shot was loosed he did a small backflip and slid down the other side of the scrap pile, deactivating his cloak to let it recharge.

Deep in thought and entertaining ideas while his ego reassured him that whatever plan he came up with would win the day, Thunderwing was unaware of the presence of another -
- until the faint, distance sound of something approaching fast woke him from his daydream of victory. As he turned to investigate the strange noise, his chest was struck and pain shot across as something raked his upper torso. Thunderwing let out a protest of pain as he held his chest. He looked down and saw something had hit him hard. The damage wasn't serious enough to cause Thunderwing any concern, but it was sufficient enough to stir his anger.
Thunderwing calculated quickly the direction of where the attack had originated. He saw nothing but that didn't mean no one was out there. Clearly they were hidden and Thunderwing guessed that their numbers had to be small enough to hid out here in the barren wastelands as there wasn't many places a even a small squad could hide. Regardless, Thunderwing would made sure that who ever dared to strike him would suffer greatly and for a long measure of time.
When he could not make contact with the would be assassin, Thunderwing activated his C.L.U.T.C.H. drone and sent it out to find the enemy. The drone took to the air in the direction of the attack and began its scan of the area.

Hearing the wail was both a good and a bad sign, good in the sense that he hurt the buffoon, but bad because he did not get to kill the con. He heard the whirring of the little flying contraption and froze, quickly turning to find respite in the scrap heap he hid in, there were gaps but even in his current state he couldn't fit into them that's when he grinned and transformed into his panther form, like this however he might be mistaken for the decepticon known as. Ravage, but he didn't want to risk it, he climbed into the pile of scrap, made up of various corpses left to rust and within changed back, priming his grapple as he made it look like he was just one of the dead, except for a non rusted arm and head sticking out from the scrap. The Ono upside was that here his symbol couldn't be seen and his body wasn't modified since he was in the decepticons, "this might play out well after all" he mumbled before periodically groaning in what sounded like pain "Heeeeelp meee, dec...decepticon down, n,need evac, spark ... Almost ... Depleted"

Hearing the voice of Prowler the C.L.U.T.C.H. made for the location where the sound was coming from. It came to a full stop and hovered above as it scanned the robot. Training it's weapons on the 'fallen' robot, the drone tried to figure out if it was friend of foe. It remained their, still and with it's weapon's primed on its target, but confused.
Thunderwing saw that the C.L.U.T.C.H. found something but had not attacked. He quickly transformed and took to the sky to cover the distance between him and the C.L.U.T.C.H. drone faster. He thought to himself as he flew that one more attacks came, so either his attackers were all hiding now and their numbers were definitely small. He assumed that he first attack was most likely the best shot his attackers had. The fools had thrown away their best chance at ridding Cybertron of Thundering he mused. Or perhaps it was just one single fool?
Closer now to where the drone was, Thunderwing saw the C.L.U.T.C.H. looking about for more possible enemy Autobots but maintained its position and kept it's weapons in place. The drone had found something indeed. It was just a matter of astro-seconds before Thunderwing would arrive and see for himself just who was foolish enough to attack the Decepticon warlord.

Noticing the C.L.U.T.C.H and hearing the jet engines, he had to move quickly. He dived back out of the junk pile firing his grapple at the clutch, in the sheer hope that it would strike it he spun instinctively as on the off chance that it hit its mark he could force more junk over it rendering it useless before it noticed what he was. Diving away and moving around the junk pile so that the passing Jet couldn't see him, using his agility as best he could to avoid being noticed by the Decepticon, with an arrow notched in his bow he remained in the dark, knowing that if he could just wait another few moments before his chameleon would grant him some more invisible minutes. He grinned as he did so, knowing that he could destroy this Decepticon if he didn't over extend himself.

Thunderwing saw the C.L.U.T.C.H. drone move away suddenly as something flew past it. Then the drone began to chase after something or someone, firing its energy blaster at it as it gave chase. Thunderwing increased his speed and activated his Mark-O Orbital Beacon and took a scan of the area. The beacon located a small Cybertronian energy single, just ahead of the C.L.U.T.C.H. drone. He opened up his after burners and made a large turn in his flight approach to cut off the fleeing Cybertronian and readied his Homing Rockets.

He took a shot from the energy blaster, however his overshield absorbed the impacts, he turned around and whilst holding the bow and arrow undrawn in one hand took his whip and struck it straight in the direction of the C.L.U.T.C.H, his agility showing through, he delivered a downward stroke and then a horizontal one it quick succession making it near impossible to dodge, he peered around the scrap pile too to see the telltale sign of a Mark-O looking for him, he activated his EM cloaking device and drew another arrow and shot it right at the jet's flight path before disappearing behind the scrap pile again

(OOC: The Mark-O Orbital Beacon isn't a thing one can see, its more like a Transformer's inner scanner that marks an individual)
The C.L.U.T.C.H. avoided the whips path and continued to open fire at Prowler. The retaliation from the Autobot and having the dodge the piles of scrap made it hard for the C.L.U.T.C.H. to land a direct hit.
The single from the Mark-O Orbital Beacon informed Thunderwing of the Autobot's position though all the piles of scrap. Even the distance between the two made it impossible to see Prowler but Thunderwing had his position. Suddenly Thunderwing's early warning radar informed him of a small energon single headed in his flight path. Thunderwing made a hard left and dropped down some feet to avoid the intended shot.
Angry, Thunderwing armed two of his homing rockets and fired at Prowler's position where the Mark-O Orbital Beacon indicated his location. "I have you now!"

He was estranged by how advanced the combat systems of the clutch were that it dodged that many hits and at the speed, he dropped to all fours and changed into his motorcycle form to open fire with his mitachyon repeaters knowing that it couldn't dodge bullet velocity that much, plus it isn't an infinitely powered unit, so it would need to return to master soon, knowing that the decepticon would know exactly where he was after bullets being fired he began driving around, between and underneath the piles of scrap, this was when he noticed the rockets heading for him, he changed back momentarily to tun to face them and ran straight for the first one flipping over it and changing once more into his motorcycle form which was low enough to the ground that the second one flew past him also but he couldn't help screaming out "Gaskets!!!" As the closeness of the missiles unsettled him, he was found but not out of the woods, firing his mitachyon repeater at the second one as it rotated to resume its detonation, blowing it up, the first however was catching up and quickly, he turned once more narrowly avoiding it and headed for a tunnel through the scrap with another pile just after the exit, he drove through it with the missile just cyber meters behin him he leapt and converted again using his grappling hook at the roof above him he swung up and over hitting the top of the pile hard as the missile detonated just beneath him, he felt amazing as he ha just escape death here but turned and looked in horror at the damage the missiles did and how close the jet now was

(The EM cloak hides my emerging signal, you shouldn't be able to see my emerging signature or lock me with the satellite ?)
(OOC: 'Electromagnetic Cloak: Can hide a Transformer from most monitoring devices but won't turn them invisible.' Plus he tagged you before he you activated it. If you had activated it before he attempted to tag you then the chances of your character going undetected would of been much, much better. And by the way, your post didn't mention that Thunderwing has fired two homing rockets at you. You need to post your character's reaction and outcome.)

(ooc: I can tell this one watches a lot of Transformers Prime!)
Thunderwing saw his missles explode after some time. Then he finally saw the Autobot standing high on top of a pile of scrap. The Decepticon warlord transformed and landed on the rough terrain about 50 feet away from Prowler. "So this is the would be assassin of Thunderwing? A single Autobot? You have ambition where common sense would serve you better. However it is an honour to die by my hand. And I must thank you for making it easy to do away with what little I shall leave of your body. After all this scrap yard does make a fitting grave yard does it not, Autobot?" Finished Thunderwing which a sneer and a fiendish chuckle.
