Description

First introduced by the Terran Hegemony in 2568, the Phoenix Hawk was one of the most well known BattleMechs in the Inner Sphere. The 'Mech began life when Orguss Industries realized that it could reinforce the Stinger chassis to create a larger version, one with the same speed and maneuverability as the Stinger but with superior armor, firepower and electronics. Though not without its own drawbacks, the Phoenix Hawk quickly became the standard by which all other reconnaissance 'Mechs were measured.

Description

Referred to as the Phoenix Hawk Special, the 1b was introduced in 2760 for the Star League's Royal units. It utilized an XL Engine as well as Endo Steel for its chassis, which allowed the designers to upgrade its weaponry. The pistol-like laser was upgraded to an ER PPC, while a swivel-mounted ER Large Laser found its way onto the right torso. A Guardian ECM Suite in the center torso improved the 1b's defense.

Description

Made by ComStar for the Battle of Tukayyid out of damaged Phoenix Hawk chassis that ComStar had in storage, the PHX-1bC proved its worth on the battlefield as a premier scouting platform against the Clans. Armed with the PHX-1b's ER Large Laser and pair of Medium Lasers, the -1bC takes a twist on normal Phoenix Hawks and adds a Narc Launcher for accurate ally targeting and a Flamer for starting fires and denying the Clans cover. A Guardian ECM is carried over from the -1b. The -1bC performed well enough that ComStar kept it in service post-Tukayyid.

Description

An upgrade that never saw full production due to the fall of the Star League, the 1c called for swapping out the ER PPC in exchange for a Snub-Nose PPC, which was still an experimental weapon when the first models started field trials in 2784. The extra ton left over was used to increase the variant's armoring.

Description

The 1D variant of the Phoenix Hawk was commonly used by the forces of House Davion. Introduced in 2856, it removes both of the machine guns and the ammunition and replaces them with two additional heat sinks. While removing a small amount of the 'Mech's short-range firepower and a powerful set of weapons against infantry, the additional heat sinks made the 1D's heat load more manageable.

Description

The 1K variant was particularly favored by House Kurita, though when it was introduced in 2603 it represented a departure from the traditional thinking of the Phoenix Hawk. By removing all jump jets from the 'Mech, room is freed up to install three additional heat sinks and another one and a half tons of armor. The machine guns and ammunition have also been removed from the design and replaced with a single Small Laser carried in the center torso.

Description

Based on the Phoenix Hawk-1, the PXH-2 is a simple swap that loses the Machine Guns and their ammo for a Guardian ECM Suite, giving the mech a little bit of electronic warfare capability. Otherwise, the -2 is the same as the Pixie it is based on.

Description

The 3D variant of this 'Mech was based on the 1D used by Davion forces. It was built as one of a slew of redesigns using recovered lostech. The 'Mech utilized Endo Steel construction techniques and a Extra-Light engine to free up weight and space for a number of improvements. The 'Mech carried a pair of ER Large Lasers and a pair of Medium Pulse Lasers split between both arms. With the machine guns and their ammunition removed, this allowed two additional heat sinks to be added, and all single heat sinks were exchanged for double strength models.

Description

The 3K Phoenix Hawk was an upgrade of the design that used rediscovered technologies, built for House Kurita and the Free Rasalhague Republic. The engine was upgraded to an XL model. The 3K carries carries two ER large lasers and two Medium Pulse Lasers in place of the standard type. It also carried twelve double heat sinks to manage the additional waste heat and the eight tons of standard armor were replaced with the same amount of Ferro-Fibrous armor, improving its survivability.

Description

The 3M variant of the 'Mech was also introduced in 3048, built by Earthwerks Incorporated from their Keystone factory and using upgrades based on rediscovered Star League technology. First, the internal structure of the 'Mech has been redesigned to utilize an Endo Steel chassis. The engine was then replaced with a 270 XL and the heat sinks were upgraded to double heat sinks. The 'Mech carried two ER Large Lasers as its primary weapons and two Medium Pulse Lasers for close in work, with one of each mounted in either arm. Finally, an Anti-Missile System replaced the right-arm machine gun, with two tons of both AMS and machine gun reloads carried in the CASE-protected left torso.

Description

The 3S model, first deployed in 3042, was another upgrade using rediscovered technology that attempted to make the Phoenix Hawk even more effective for reconnaissance. The engine was upgraded to an ExtraLight version and ten double heat sinks improved heat management. The overall armor protection was increased by one ton and replaced with Ferro-Fibrous armor. The primary weapon on the 'Mech was a Large Pulse Laser built into the right arm, though it still retained the two medium lasers and machine guns of the original. Additionally an anti-missile system was mounted on the right arm, with its two tons of ammo protected by CASE in the left torso. Its primary difference from other variants introduced during the time period was the addition of a MASC system.

Description

Constructed by Ceres Metals as a testbed for the new Medium X-Pulse Laser, the PXH-4X never saw wide production. Built around a Light Fusion Engine to saves weight while keeping survivability high, the -4X's armaments are simple. A trio of Medium X-Pulse Lasers in each arm provide respectable close-range firepower. 13 double heat sinks struggle to keep the heat contained while six jump jets let the -4X vault up to 180 meters in a go. The -4X saw limited production but ultimately was sidelined by Ceres' later Phoenix Hawk variants.

Also installed is a NARC Launcher and a C3i Computer, with a Guardian ECM suite for additional battlefield control.

For supporting weaponry a Medium Laser is also carried in each arm along with a left-arm mounted Machine Gun and right-arm mounted Anti-Missile System. Fitted with eleven Double Heat Sinks, the 'Mech carries a single ton each of Machine Gun and AMS ammo in the CASE protected left torso.
