The Egg Hawk was an attack aircraft built by Dr. Eggman with a laser cannon in its beak controlled by Eggman along with two turrets manned by Egg Pawns under the wings. It was capable of flying through the air regularly, but could also fly straight up or down by using the fans stationed on its wings like helicopter and could carry heavy loads.
Team Sonic, Team Dark, Team Rose, and Team Chaotix all faced off with the Egg Hawk during their various adventures leading up to their confrontation with Metal Overlord. Following their initial battles, they confronted the craft again, this time mounted atop a large, weapon-equipped blimp and bearing the name Egg Albatross. Afterwards, it was sold to Breezie the Hedgehog, who had it hung from a ceiling in Casino Park for display purposes. It was seen hanging next to the remainder of the Egg Albatross as well as the Egg Balloon. (VG: SH, StH: #268)
The Egg Hawk was first put to use to stop the threat of the combined forces of Mammoth Mogul, Ixis Naugus, the Destructix and Arachne with help from the Egg Fleet to preserve the Eggman Empire and its leader. The Egg Hawk was later used to transport a huge drill when Eggman detected mystical energies and was displeased to discover a Chao Garden with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles in it. Since there was no energy for him to use, he decided to make a day of it with wanton destruction and readied the drill. But then Tails rigged the drill's stabilizing rockets while Sonic and Knuckles threw it into the Egg Hawk, destroying the flying machine. (StH: #164, #173, #174)
