The Crimson Hawk was originally developed by Clan Blood Spirit in 3069 as a light strike 'Mech. Clan Diamond Shark became aware of the prototype model and won a Trial of Possession for it, developing the Crimson Hawk into its production form. Much of its mass is geared towards armor and firepower rather than speed, as it was intended for difficult terrain and swarm tactics.[6]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Crimson Hawk is armed with a Series 7K and a Series 7J pair of ER large lasers that allow it to snipe at an enemy from long range. Utilizing its jump jets allows the 'Mech to leap up to 150 meters, keeping the enemy at distance or to attain an advantageous firing position.[6]
