With a need for a fighter to defend their aerospace assetts and to keep an eye over their mechs, Hanse Davion commissioned the creation of the HAK series fighters for the Federated Suns Armed Forces.


Though not the fastest fighter, nor even close to being the fastest, the HackSaw fighters excel at bringing the pain to the battle.

The major downside of this fighter is its slow speed.

The weapons load allows it to take down most enemies in a single volley if the pilot's aim is on mark. Carrying 2 autocannon 10s and an autocannon 5 as its primary systems it can hit hard, but with three large lasers to follow up the main attack it can kill almost anything out there in short order.

For rear defense the HackSaw carries a trio of medium lasers to take down any enemy fighters giving it chase or to hit enemies in a strafing run before it turns around for another run.

Battle History:

Currently there are no unclassified combat reports.


There are no current variants in the field but there is a version 1B on the design boards.

Notable Vessels & Crews:

None on record.


Currently deployed on New Avolon and with the Davion Heavy Guards.

As a dropship killer or for ground support this would be lethal. As a space superiority fighter it's going to have its work cut out actually getting weaponry on target.

The very limited fuel capacity also limits it, but then it's not got the thrust to burn it too quickly so probably ok

I'm guessing -1b variant addresses some of this, from your note

Removed incorrect speed remark. Design Updated on 8/15/2009 9:03:52 PM

60KPH? Error, that doesn't compute. That's more like the stalling speed rather than the maximum speed. (remember asf movement doesn't fit with the kph of mechs at all)

Extremely well armed, and well armored, but so slow that it has nearly no chance at all to use that weaponry. Sadly this would be torn apart by even a light asf.

Would that help? -- I put it with enough speed to keep up with a warship, so it is not too bad a speed. Anyway, next model is gonna have a faster speed.

4/6 Movement? Does the pilot have to get out and push?

Edit: Lafie, it would have a maximum pull of 3Gs (Movement divided by 2)
