The Sky Hawk (or Skyhawk) is a VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) aircraft used by the G.I. Joe team. It is equipped with a pair of 20mm cannons located underneath the cockpit as well as missiles that are launched from the underside of the vehicle. Due to the Sky Hawk's small size, it can only seat one to two passengers, meaning Joes will often ride shotgun by standing on the vehicle's landing skids. This doesn't seem particularly safe but they don't let you into G.I. Joe for not taking risks.

Fiction[edit | edit source]

A Sky Hawk was being transported on the back of a truck when Duke and Beach Head returned to The Pit from a jog up on the surface. G.I. Joe vol. 1 #1

Several Sky Hawks were part of the massive amount of G.I. Joe forces deployed to Verde when they caught word that Cobra was likely to appear in the country. M.A.S.S. Destruction Part 2

Years later, after G.I. Joe became an international organization, Talon piloted a Sky Hawk with Flint riding on its skid to the Matterhorn, traveling there to monitor the developing situation between Optimus Prime's Autobots and the newly arrived Junkions. As the Junkion leader Wreck Gar reached for his craft, Talon opened fire on him, blowing the Junkion to bits, not that that meant much to him.

Behind My Bleeding Back TFWikiFavicon.png As he piloted the Sky Hawk back to the Matterhorn, Flint was cut off and asked to land by Marissa inside of Thundercracker Dance Among the Shadows TFWikiFavicon.png They'd eventually take off again alongside the Sharkticons.

After the short-lived Junkion invasion ended and an accord was reached whereby the aliens could set up a place to stay at Bikini Atoll, Talon and Chameleon flew a Sky Hawk around to take a look at the new settlement. Feel Safe Without Regrets TFWikiFavicon.png

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Sky Hawk has never actually been referred to by name in IDW's comics thus far, meaning we don't know if it's spelled as two words as the original toy had it or as one word like most modern toys have it.
