- Sonic Attack Jets are Vehicon drones in the Beast Machines portion of the Generation One continuity family.
Swarming in massive numbers, Sonic Attack Jets (also called "Aero Drones") provide air support when the ground-based Vehicons attack. They're not very smart, but they have incredible speed and almost unlimited numbers.
Sonic Attack Jets were first encountered by Blackarachnia and Cheetor when they were exploring the abandoned Cybertropolis. Subsequently led by Jetstorm throughout the war, they typically attacked in swarms, using their high altitude and speed to launch attacks.
After Obsidian was made a Vehicon general and the introduction of the Copter Drones, the Sonic Attack Jets were put in reserve. . They were later used when Megatron launched his assault on the Maximal-occupied Grand Mal, possibly for purposes of troop augmentation.
- Sonic Attack Jet (Deluxe, 2000)
- The Sonic Attack Jet is a redeco of the Beast Machines Deluxe Vehicon Jetstorm mold, transforming into a Cybertronic jet fighter. His jet-mode cockpit has a spring-loaded extension, giving him a bird-like head in this form that is articulated at the neck to "search" for targets. Both jet and robot modes feature spring-loaded "energy blast" missiles. He also has an alternate robot mode, which folds his legs into a "flight cone" with revealed jet thrusters.
