BattleTech: Spotlight On: Crescent Hawks

Watermarked PDF

For every Kell Hounds or Wolf’s Dragoons, there are a hundred similar outfits that are just as talented—and just as deadly—that you have never heard of. Or worse, you have not heard enough. Sure, the glory hounds who make the evening tri-vid news are movers and shakers, and can change national borders whenever they want, but they’re not the only ones. For every Eridani Light Horse brigade, there is a mercenary crew with a storied battlefield history just as spectacular. These are the unit commands that have gone largely unnoticed in the long, bloody history of the Inner Sphere, their stories untold or nearly forgotten. Take a closer look at the battles and events that have shaped the human sphere, and you’ll find even two-bit troops like Wilson’s Hussars have made a difference.

Spotlight On: Crescent Hawks includes a Unit History, Personalities, Personnel Rosters, Mission Tracks, and data for use with all scales of BattleTech play.

This is a 24 page PDF, but as someone who isn't interested in Alpha Strike, this is really a 12 page PDF with 10 pages of material. I do like that it includes Battleforce formations! Here's the content breakdown (# pages - content). Yes, half of the PDF is made up of Alpha Strike unit cards.
1 - Cover
1- Intro, how to use, credits
5 - Unit history, personalities, roster
2 - Scenarios
1 - TW/AS special abilities, Battleforce formations, abstract combat system combat teams
12 - Alpha Strike cards
2 - Total Warfare record sheets

I was a bit disappointed in the product, particularly in the length of the unit history (two pages), personalities (two pages), and roster (1 page), but also in the provided scenarios. There are only two, with "Going Through Hell" taking place in 3078 and "Tempest Born" in 3141, but nothing set in the Succession Wars Era. I would have REALLY enjoyed an attempt to translate some of the missions from "Crescent Hawks Inception/Revenge" into tabletop. The unit history is superficial, at best, with only slightly more data than what is on So if you're looking for a more in-depth examination of the Crescent Hawks, like the treatment they gave the Wolf's Dragoons or Kell Hounds, then this is NOT what you are looking for.
