When the Race Car Patrol infiltrated Thunderwing's base to rescue the Battle Patrol, the Air Strike Patrol were sent out to meet them as a field-test.

Oh, sure, blame the only guy who's in color.Unknown to Scorponok, the patrol's secret employer was Megatron, who then sent the team on a mission to MacDill Air Force Base to capture the B-204 refueling plane. While his teammates all argued among themselves over leadership of the group throughout the whole mission, Tailwind kept quiet, content to call them names in his thoughts. When the Autobots inevitably arrived, the team contacted Scorponok to tell him that they were under attack.

The Greatest Gift of All!The Air Strike Patrol then toured the southern United States, finally attacking an oil refinery. This was the same oil refinery where Hector Dialonzo, a human with extraordinary powers, was working, and he single-handedly destroyed the Air Strike Patrol, with Tailwind the first to go offline. The Human Factor! Marvel UK future timelines The Air Strike Patrol took Megatron's side in the 1991 Decepticon Civil War against factions led by Scorponok and Shockwave. Near the end of that war, the Patrol chased Scorponok, alone, into a human settlement, where Tailwind jostled with Nightflight over who would get to kill the enemy leader. Scorponok maneuvered a team of Autobots into combatting the Patrol for him, enabling Scorponok to escape. Aspects of Evil!
