FORTRESS MAXIMUS is valiant and courageous -- a warrior without peer... but peace is his most fervent wish. He fights only out of necessity; he believes all violence is ultimately pointless and counterproductive. He transforms to battle station and city modes. He is armed with twin laser-guided mortars on legs, heat-seeking dual laser blasters, and a fusion-powered photon rifle. He has communications, detection, and repair equipment. He controls two armored vehicles, Gasket and Grommet, which combine to form Cog. His head transforms to semi-autonomous Cerebros, who is binary-bonded to the Autobot ambassador, Spike.

Fortress Maximus is an imagined battle station proposed by Spike Witwicky in 2018. The idea began its gestation while the Autobots were left homeless after a devastating attack on Autobot City in 2018. During this time in the Ark, Spike began to believe that the Ark wasn't enough of a backup option for the Autobots to retreat to. They would need more of a military fortress.
Spike used Megan's copy of Minecraft to develop a very rough sketch of the proposed battle station, originally called "Super Fort." It is his hope that once completed, it could eventually become a living entity like Metroplex.
Upon Optimus Prime's approval, construction began in Iacon to make Fortress Maximus a reality.
