Tiberium EssenceEditIn Tiberium Essence, the Firehawk is mainly used as an air superiority fighter, but can also be used for ground support purposes by switching the loadout to Shockwave Bombs. These bombs disable vehicles and structures for a few seconds. For anti-air purposes, it uses Rattlesnake Missiles to rapidly knock hostile aircraft out of the air. It can be upgraded with the Stratofighter Boosters special ability in order to be able to boost itself in the stratosphere to quickly move to another location on the battlefield. It can also be upgraded with ECM Container to improve its survivability.
- The description of the Firehawks still refer to their four EMP Shockwave Bombs as "two Groundpounder Bombs" and do not mention their EMP effects or their effectiveness against vehicles.
- Due to unknown reasons, the Firehawks' ECM Containers only appear when the Stratofighter Upgrade is purchased, instead of when the ECM upgrade is purchased.
