The Turbo Hydro-Hawk 3000

“Please, close your eyes for a moment,” said Major Pia Holt, addressing the class. “Now, I want you to imagine that you have found a way to strap yourself to a bolt of lightning.  Imagine, you are in control of the lightning bolt, and at will you jet through the clouds then rocket downward through the surface of the ocean, exploring the depths. Now you know what it’s like to pilot the new Turbo Hydro-Hawk 3000.”

The Hydro-Hawk has the ability to fit through the smallest cracks in the ocean floor, and while traveling at a high rate of speed, gives the gunner enough fire power to destroy anything in the way. The on board weapons system contains dozens of Raptor Class missiles, as well as hundreds of rounds of automatic hydro ammo. 

The design of the new Hydro-Hawk is based upon the world’s old, pre-quake fighters; the F-22 Raptor, F-16, F-14, Ru35, Stealth Fighter, among others. The Hydro-Hawk has no equal on the planet, above or below the surface of the Grand Ocean. This machine has the ability to fly at speeds of up to 3,700 kilometers per hour (2,300 miles per hour) while maintaining squad formation a mere ten meters above the surface of the ocean. The revolutionary Hydro-Drive engine manufactures power by converting ocean water into fuel. The engine requires a steady supply of moisture to operate most effectively. So, the closer the fighter is to the surface of the ocean the faster it will move. The revolutionary engine design also gives the ship the ability to reach speeds up to 1,600 kilometers per hour (995 miles per hour) below the surface of the ocean. And, yes – that’s beneath the surface of the ocean.

Just like an attacking sea bird, just a fraction of a second before water entry, the wings and tail of the Hydro-Hawk retract, making the fighter more aerodynamic. Once the ship is below the surface of the ocean, the wings and tail shift into the optimal position for the Hydro-Hawk to operate most effectively.

The tiny fighter is built in proportion to children’s smaller bodies. An Ager couldn’t fit inside the cockpit, even if he or she wanted to. The Hydro-Hawk is designed to hold one pilot, and one gunner. The gunner seat electronically rotates into battle position, placing the gunner upside down, in the Plexiglas nose of the ship, for a better view. 

Meeting Major Pia Holt

Pia Holt is a thirteen-year-old Norwegian girl with long blonde hair. She now serves as lead instructor at the Hydro-Hawk Specialty School in Mexico City. She had lost her left arm and leg in a dreadful battle in which the New World Military eventually lost eighteen Hydro-Hawks and Bombers. At the time of her injury Pia Holt was the lead Hydro-Hawk pilot for Seawolf Squad which operated from the Nippon Mountain Base, strategically located near several Hydrotian deep-water trench bases. During the battle Pia was responsible for saving countless Hydro-Hawks from destruction. She continued to attack Hydrotian Tank positions, even after her fighter had been hit multiple times.

Pia’s disabled Hydro-Hawk eventually deployed the emergency pod bringing Pia to the surface kilometers away from the battle. The scrambled signal of Pia’s Hydro-Hawk distress beacon helped a recon team locate the brave Norwegian girl. She was found unconscious, floating upon the surface of the Grand Ocean.
