Description

First introduced in 2467, this first generation of the Shadow Hawk employs early BattleMech technology in its weaponry, equipment and its armor. This design was first produced by Lang Industries on Caph, where it was designed as part of the Hegemony's efforts to keep ahead of the Inner Sphere's newly stolen BattleMech technology. The SHD-1R was equipped with a single shoulder mounted Class 5 autocannon and a single medium laser.

Description

The Shadow Hawk 2D is an interesting model. Its default payload sacrifices a lot of armor to mount a bit more firepower, though some argue the tradeoff isn't worth it. Its Alpha Strikes are better, though, so… I guess you can be the judge.

Description

Description

Produced for Tukayyid by ComStar in order to hunt and destroy Clan Elemental suits, the SHD-2Ht proved able, if unexceptional, at the job. Armed with a brace of basic lasers, one Large and twin Mediums, as well as a whopping five Streak SRM-2 launchers, the SHD-2Ht proved quite capable of vaporizing Elementals, though it struggled somewhat against harder targets. ComStar did not keep the -2Ht in production post-Tukayyid, though occasional examples could be found among the forces of the ComGuard after that great conflict's end.

Description

The 5M Shadow Hawk is the first complete overhaul and upgrade of the design, unveiled by Earthwerks for the Free Worlds League. The chassis has been upgraded to an Endo Steel frame, an additional ton of armor was added, two additional jump jets were fitted, the engine replaced with an extralight version, and the weapons load has undergone a complete renovation. The original autocannon has been updated to an Ultra Autocannon/5, the LRM launcher to a LRM-20, and the head-mounted SRM launcher to a Streak SRM-2.

Description

There has always been a question in BattleMech design as to the smallest viable chassis to carry artillery. The SHD-6S tries to put that to rest with its Sniper Artillery. To back up the Sniper and its three tons of ammo, the -6S carries only two Medium Lasers. To carry this huge weight, the -6S is slower than most Shadow Hawks as well as carrying a Light Engine, Endo-Steel structure, and Ferro-Fibrous armor. Still, most commanders are fine with the tradeoffs to bring a highly mobile artillery piece to the battlefield.

Description

The Shadow Hawk -7CS is a fairly typical model of ComStar's new variants. It retains the UAC/5 of the -5M, but drops the Streak SRM and reduces the LRM rack to allow for CASE in the right torso and more ammunition. A second Medium Laser was added, and both are now ER Models. Finally, a C3i Computer was installed for Level II coordination.

Description

Allegedly a 'Mech piloted by Grayson Death Carlyle, it's highly unlikely that Carlyle ever really owned this variant. Whatever the truth may be, the story certainly draws in the crowds. This Hero 'Mech swaps the AC/5 for an AC/10 with 2 tons of ammunition and carries two Medium Lasers in each arm. The LRM-5 and SRM-2 remain, along with the 3 Jump Jets. Cooling is handled by 12 Double Heat Sinks. The tonnage required for the heavier weapons loadout is freed up by using an XL 275-rated engine and an Endo-Steel structure.
