Terrahawks Vehicles: Terrahawk
Terrahawk is the command and control centre of the Terrahawk
fleet. It also forms the flight deck of the larger Battlehawk.
It neatly docks in the middle back of the Battlehawk, with its
wings folding to fit the profile of the larger craft, and can
fly off of its own accord should needs suit (and they often do).
Piloted by Dr. Ninestein and co-piloted by Capt. Mary Falconer,
Terrahawk is equipped with twin Jupiter thrust jets and can
reach mach point 8 at sea level. Armed with a machine cannon,
missiles and great manoeuvrability, Terrahawk is a compact but
potent craft. The Thunderbirds equivalent would probably be
Thunderbird 1, the reconnaissance craft.
Since Terrahawk is in essence part of the Battlehawk it's safe to
say it launches with the larger craft. Having said that it is also
launched from the back of the Battlehawk to undertake independent
operations. To accomplish this Terrahawk rests back on its "talons"
and brings its engines to full power in order to clear Battlehawk.
