The SkyHawk Jumpjet is equipped with four 50mm cannons as well as Scorpion Anti-Tank missiles. Several of these craft were based at Fairchild Field on Reach, and one was dispatched by Colonel James Ackerson to attack John-117 and Cortana during their test of the MJOLNIR Mark V armor and its new shield technology in 2552. Despite all expectations, the Spartan-II and Cortana managed to endure its cannons' strafing run and avoid its guided anti-tank missiles by simply deflecting it at the last moment, proving the Spartan-AI team far more successful than ever expected.
These aircraft are capable of supersonic flight, and can execute quick turns at maximum speed.
