The Hawk is a troop carrier VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) aircraft that is used by the Last City. It is typically seen making cargo deliveries at the Tower. Hawks are mentioned carrying Guardian reinforcements during The Plaguelands mission by Shiro-4.
During the Red War, it was used as an attack fighter against Red Legion forces; during Homecoming Amanda Holliday used one to dropped off The Guardian on The Immortal. Dead Orbit has their own fleet of heavily armed Hawks. They can be seen periodically visiting the Tower Ramparts' Hangar, in the area adjacent to the faction's designated area below the Future War Cult space.
- During the 2013 E3 demo, the Hawk was used by Guardians to deploy outside of the Cosmodrome. This cutscene, as well as the whole sequence, has been replaced by the story mission A Guardian Rises. Hawks are never used by players in the final release of the game.
- Courtesy of the Warmind expansion, the Hawk is available for players to use as personal Jumpships.
