The Peregrine Attack VTOL was one of two VTOLs built by Blackwell for Wolf's Dragoons. Soon after its introduction it was made available to general public. Despite its high speed, it wasn't very successful because of its high price, low maneuverability, and unreliable components. During the early 30th century three houses (Kurita, Liao and Marik) used Peregrines in reserves or police forces.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

Originally tasked to guard transports and secure drop zones, the extremely short range of the SRM-4 and Machine Guns, plus its thin armor, led to unacceptably high losses. The Peregrine was then taken out of front line service.[1]


  • Cargo 
    This version of the Peregrine strips out all the weapons and equipment and replaces them with a seven ton cargo bay. BV (2.0) = 88[5]
  • Kuritan 
    This version of the Peregrine was pushed into combat during the Clan Invasion. It removed the machine guns and replaced them with a pair of Medium Lasers. Unfortunately these modified Peregrines were no more effective in combat than the original Peregrine. BV (2.0) = 564[6]
