Full phrase appears to be Pacis quod alcedonia, though the 'Con spikes get in the way. Not sure what it means.


"Alcedonia" means "tranquility".

Not sure if "quod" is gramatically correct, though.

In other words, a more fascist reading of "You have the right to remain silent."

It appears to mean Peace with Tranquility


I thought that would require it to begin with pax.

Well, I'm relying on Google more than my ability to translate latin.

I got this:

Pacis: peace - peace, truce, treaty

quod: Meaning:
on condition that, with the understanding that.
which, what, that

Wow. I'm starting to be really disappointed that Devastator is just a codename for the tank and it isn't really the character it's going to be. I can so see that tank turning into Devs.


"Barrage" wouldn't be a bad name.

And it's one of the Bandai Insecticons which means no one could possibly care, right?

Right?

I don't know if anyone has pointed this out, but the tank is on the yellow flatbed.

Looking at the perspective and seeing how the yellow flatbed overlaps the back of the tank just below the green cylinder. As well as how the white flatbed overlaps the treads, This is definatley on the yellow flatbed, so that throws out the tank-behind-a-tank idea.

If the military is using this movie to reveal the F-22, what's to say they don't have other tech they're going to show, or that this is a big, cybertronian prop?

Well, it's a moot point now since we see that the tank has two turrets.

I don't really see that 'calm' or 'tranquility' is a synomym for "tyranny" but "Peace through" or "Peace because of" seems logical for the first part.
