Terrahawks Vehicles: Spacehawk
Spacehawk forms an early warning and planetary defence platform.
Any attack on Earth must first get past Spacehawk and its crew of
space scanning Zeroids. If anything does manage to pass by the
station then advanced warning is given to the Terrahawks base on
Earth. The station's power sources are Lathirol nuclear pulse drives
which provide the power generation needs of the station's arsenal:
Missile lanchers, laser cannon and a crew of 100 zeroids. Lt. Hiro
also mans Spacehawk for most of the time. In order to maintain some
degree of gravity, Spacehawk rotates slowly about its centre shaft.
The station is a formidable first line of defence and is capable of
manoeuvring within the solar system to engage any enemy with its
immense armoury. A well armed Thunderbird 5.
Since Spacehawk mostly remains in geo stationary Earth orbit any
"launch" would simply be a matter of firing manoeuvring thrusters.
