Transformers: Generation 1
Malicious and meticulous. Feels the sky is his home and that it should be kept "clean" of anything that flies. Notorious for shooting his fellow Decepticons. High-intensity heat generators in wings enable him to sear through solid steel. Also equipped with long-range infrared scanners, sensitive enough to find a lug-nut in a junkyard. Armed with two, lock-target, long-range laser cannons
Windsweeper and his fellow Triggercons made their first appearance in a flashback to the early days of the war on Cybertron, where they were recruited by Megatron to follow Optimus Prime and discover his plans with Circuitmaster Boltax. On discovering Prime with the Underbase the Decepticons attacked, but were forced to retreat when the Underbase was launched by Prime to avoid the Decepticons capturing its power for themselves.
Much later, after the disappearance of the Ark and the recommencement of the war on Earth, Windsweeper and the other Triggercons were under the command of the Triumverate, a trio of lazy and incompetent Decepticons who were more interested in gladiator games than winning the war with the Autobots. Ruckus and the others waited for the opportunity to rebel and seized their chance when Megatron (actually a Straxus created clone of the original) arrived and bested the Triumverate's warriors, saving him from an assassination attempt. Unfortunately for them, Megatron's first commands to them were to find more competent minions. Subsequently, Ruckus, now commanding a group of Decepticons, was dispatched to Earth to find the missing Thunderwing. Thunderwing then forcibly took command of the group and led them into a suicide mission against the Ark, much to Ruckus' displeasure. He managed to talk Thunderwing out of it though.
Windsweeper appeared among the Decepticons under the command of Galvatron in the alternate future story "Aspects of Evil 2" from Marvel UK Transformers #224. In this story Rodimus Prime remembered how Galvatron, Crankcase, Ruckus and Windsweeper killed Blurr and then attacked Rodimus Prime, Kup, Arcee and the Battle Patrol. Enraged, Rodimus nearly killed Galvatron, but to keep the Matrix from being contaminated by hatred, he relented.
