Starscream's Vehicon Armada was a squadron of Seeker Silver Jet Vehicons led by Decepticon air commander Starscream during the waning days of the Great War on Earth. The armada differs from other flying Vehicons, as they are silver and red, much like Starscream's color scheme.
The armada was formed after the destruction of the Omega Lock on Cybertron. Megatron wanted to destroy the Autobot base and since Starscream had rejoined the Decepticon ranks, Megatron gave him the task of destroying their base and everyone inside. They engaged Wheeljack and Agent Fowler in aerial combat aided by the Insecticons.
When Wheeljack was allowed to escape Darkmount, a tracking device was planted on him, five members of the armada were sent to kill Wheeljack and Bulkhead when the two reunited. They discovered too late, that the Wreckers found the tracker and used it to lure the Decepticons into a lethal trap.
After the destruction of the base, the Autobots rallied at Harbinger to plan a counterattack. Starscream and his armada would help defend Darkmount from Ultra Magnus and the Autobot survivors. Most of them were killed by Bulkhead and Wheeljack.
Two of them accompanied Starscream and the Predacon to Scotland. They discovered Ultra Magnus' Ship and one Vehicon asked Starscream if he was wearing the Apex Armor to protect himself from the Predacon. Starscream then took off the armor to make himself look good. Miko who was trying to reach the ship, took the armor and beat up Starscream and his two guards, who somehow survived.
During the final battle on the Nemesis, they defended the Omega Lock control room with Starscream against the Stealth Team. Starscream's Armada (three survivors) split up after the death of Megatron. It is currently unknown what happened to the Vehicons, but Starscream and Shockwave escaped in an escape pod down to the surface of Cybertron.
- It is unknown what exactly separates the Armada from the standard flyers aside from the paintjob. It is possible the Armada is composed of the best Vehicon flyers as they survived the attack on Hangar E and seem to be more resilient as they survived fighting Miko, who was donning the Apex Armor.
- These soldiers seem to be less talkative than Vehicons, perhaps why they are better warriors.
- It seems that on all Starscream's Armada, there is only three survivors after the final battle on the Nemesis.
