    When did they say the war lasted 5 million years before Optimus and Megatron crashed on Earth? So by 1984 it had been raging for 9 million years? That's really quite absurd when you think about it.

In "War Dawn," the Arielbots went back 9 million years to when Orion Pax became Optimus Prime and the war started. Frankly, Cybertronians are almost godlike in their durability and longevity. Their concept of time is vastly different than us mere mortals.

As for Prime's leadership, their entire war wasn't really fought like any of our wars. Neither side seemed very committed to killing the other. And this is one of the reasons why everybody was so horrified when Prime died in the movie. Before that, they tended to shoot wildly and when the rare shot connected with the target, it was usually a "flesh" wound. Of course, this was kiddified 80s cartoonland, where every Cobra/GIJoe pilot parachuted to safety, yadayada.
