The Phoenix Hawk LAM was the largest Land-Air 'Mech produced during the Star League. Allied Aerospace reworked their designs for conversion equipment and the size of the LAM, learning from their mistake with the Shadow Hawk LAM and the success of the Stinger LAM. The resulting LAM was the largest ever constructed capable of remaining in AirMech mode. Unfortunately, large Land-Air 'Mech conversion technology was not fully researched before the fall of the Star League, and the Phoenix Hawk LAM frequently met its end due to the occasional glitch. The end of the Star League and destruction of the Allied Aerospace facilities at the beginning of the First Succession War prevented further development and refinement.[2][3]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The basic configuration of the Phoenix Hawk LAM is armed with a torso-mounted One Amsterdam 120 large laser, and tandem Maxum 50 medium laser-Sperry Browning machine gun in each arm. Despite the increased size of the Land-Air 'Mech relative to the original Phoenix Hawk, the Phoenix Hawk LAM remains poorly armored. Worse, the Phoenix Hawk LAM is vulnerable to being crippled during conversion.

  • Munin LAM - Apparently based off the Phoenix Hawk LAM to the point where it could arguably be regarded as a variant, this LAM design seems to have only been built in tiny numbers, probably a single prototype production run.

  • Author Blaine Lee Pardoe stated in a blog entry that, according to his memory which he admitted could be wrong, the Phoenix Hawk LAM was among the BattleMechs for which he wrote the original background as initially published in TRO:3025, after being given only its name, image, and game stats to work with for the TRO entry.
