The Hawk is a British two-seater fighter aircraft developed by BAE Systems.



The Hawk was operated by the OADF to train new pilots. It was also used during Wardog Squadron's escape from Sand Island, who were branded as traitors.[1] A Yuktobanian ace, callsign "Gigantor", also used the aircraft during Operation Lagoon, but was shot down.[2]

Named Pilots



  • Outside of Ace Combat Infinity, the Hawk is the cheapest plane in the entire series, priced at only 5,000 credits.
  • The Hawk is the only flyable trainer aircraft in the entire Ace Combat series, appearing as the T.1 variant of the aircraft.
  • In real life, the T.1 could only carry the AIM-9 Sidewinder. The QAAM portrayed on the Hawk in Ace Combat 5 is the AIM-9X, which was likely a compensation for the aircraft's sub-par statistics compared to other aircraft unlocked around the same time.
  • The Hawk ace Gigantor is a direct allusion to Tetsujin 28-go (Iron Man #28), known in America as Gigantor, a 1960s manga/anime which is famous for being the first "super robot"/mecha anime. As well, the Hawk's SP scheme is graphite gray; Gigantor used a gray steel plating.
