Description[edit | edit source]
Manufactured both by the Clans and Inner Sphere the Jade Hawk is nominally one of a new series of Clan Jade Falcon totem BattleMechs.
Developed at the urging of then-Galaxy Commander Malvina Hazen, the Jade Hawk was indicative of the Jade Falcons' attempt to create several new totem Mechs to revitalize their Clan and displays birdlike talons on its arms and legs, wings that serve both an aesthetic purpose and aid in heat dissipation. While intended to be exclusive to the Falcons, a disgruntled tech who despised now-Khan Hazen's "Mongol" philosophy defected to Clan Sea Fox with a copy of the plans, sharing them on the stipulation that it not be made to the Clans. To this end the Sea Foxes reached an agreement with Galatea-based Dynamic Ordnance and Ammunition Corp, supplying the plans and contracts for Clan-spec components to make its manufacture possible for sale on the mercenary market.
The DOA-manufactured Jade Hawk devotes considerable mass to its 375 XL Engine and thirteen and half tons of armor plate, making it extremely fast for its size and carrying the maximum armor its frame can support, only enhanced by the inclusion of a supercharger. DOA also added an Inner Sphere touch by the inclusion of a pair of fearsome Claws and Triple Strength Myomers, enhancing the Jade Hawk's physical combat abilities and boosting its speed in heavy combat yet further.
