Origins

Due to Anaconda's success in roaming operations and the rapidly increasing Fortress roster, the need for a second combat team was quickly becoming essential. In November 2005, LiquidBob was discovered to be the chosen one, the one that would create the second squad of The Fortress. Realizing his duty, he named 'team B' Battlehawk. But it wasn't until the Summer of 2006 that the Battleponies were summoned and the the whole of Malton learned to fear their thundering hooves...

The Beginning

When LiquidBob departed the Hawks after just a couple of weeks, it was left to the newly discovered Head of The Fortress, Jensonson, to pick up Battlehawk and lead his first command. Although Battlehawk was successful, it was not until the controversial appointment of Commander Swinky that the team's identity started to form. Jensonson had been hesitant to pick the popular Battlehawk as the next leader. Swinky wasn't the standard, by-the-book commander that The Fortress had come to expect. However the decision to appoint her was one of the best things to happen for The Fortress in its history. Swinky painted the Battlehawk's pink, coined them the 'Battleponies' and spurred them through original and quirky, comical operations that had never before been seen by Fortress eyes. Spawned by Swinky's enthusiasm came Legend after Legend; Shrimper, Jack Patient, Stark Senap - and they all continued the trend of good humoured, comical operations that now define this legendary battle team. Battlehawk was without doubt the greatest Fortress combat team for a breath-taking 18 months.

Team Battlehawk Roster

The BattleHawk Lifestyle

Hawks believe there is much more to Urban Dead than strict AP utilization and reporting. A member of Battlehawk injects fun and humour into daily business, often along with casual in-game roleplay, whilst simultaneously taking the task of protecting Malton very seriously. They love going on important missions and making them fun and giving it a light-hearted attitude, roleplaying in game and chatting through various methods. This combination of fun and work is what has kept Battlehawk so successful for so long.
