The Firehawk is one of the fastest and most delicate units in Tiberian Twilight. Firehawks reload slowly, but more quickly in the presence of a Crawler, and do not need to dock to do so.[1] The Firehawk's strength is it's versatility, it can hit both air and ground with ordinance specialized for such a target.

A max-tier support power calls in an elite squadron of Firehawks capable of doing a large amount of damage to all units i[2]n an area.

It is armed with both air-to-ground bombs as well as air-to-air missiles. Unlike it's predecessor however, it is armed with both at the same time, one anti-ground bomb, and two anti-air missiles. Its medium armor renders it vulnerable to rocket fire from a Nod Attack bikes or Ascended.

It's Nod counterpart is the Vertigo Bomber, but without AA capabilities but can drop incendiary bombs.
