"The Keepers Trilogy"Edit
They failed pretty spectacularly. Bumblebee threw rocks at them and knocked them out of the sky.
The Uberhogs squadron name lacks the Umlaut required for correct German pronunciation. Ignorant Americans. The squadron name comes from the A-10 Thunderbolt's nickname, the Warthog.
Uberhog One - Lieutenant Vic Mellors
Vic Mellors is a rookie to actual combat. He was too young for the first Gulf War, and had just started training when the 2nd happened. His first combat experience was being assigned to delay the Autobots approaching Las Vegas so General Fellows could get his tank squadron into position.
Mellors is forced to eject after Bumblebee knocks his rear stabilizer off with a flung rock. His is the first plane downed, and he witnesses the loss of his entire squadron, including the near-disaster with Lieutenant Debussy.
Uberhog Two - Lieutenant Vern Fox.
Vern Fox calls for evasive action before the tail section is knocked off his plane. He hits his head against the canopy in the resulting spin and is knocked unconscious.
Bumblebee knocks off his canopy and managed to trigger the ejection mechanism before the plane crashes, a very delicate maneuver. Fox was the third Uberhog downed.
Uberhog Three - Lieutenant Antoine Debussy
The second Uberhog knocked out is Antoine Debussy, who lost a wing. Antoine has a New Orleans Accent.
Uberhog Four - Lieutenant Dave Langer
Dave has a thick Brooklyn accent. The final pilot downed.
