================================================================================================
Overview:
    Factory changeovers to incorporate Star League technology onto existing designs often give
    the illusion of offering something for nothing.  Many prototypes emerge with enhanced
    capabilities while giving up some small but critical item.  That is not the case with the
    new Shadow Hawk SHD-5M.  This model does, indeed, have enhanced capabilities, but there
    seems to be no loss of general combat efficiency.
    
    Free Worlds League designers combined Endo Steel internal structure and the excellent
    Hermes 275 XL engine to devote more weight to weapons and other equipment.  While two heat
    sinks were removed, all of the new models use freeezers, thus keeping the 'Mech
    cool-running.  The enhanced capabilities are impressive.  An Imperator Ultra-5 Autocannon
    replaces the old model, and a Hovertec Streak SRM-2 Pod replaces the old Holly rack,
    improving ammo efficiency.  Additional jump jets increase the Shadow Hawk's jump range to
    150 meters, and an extra half ton of armor protects the torso, arms, and legs.
    
    Though the Earthwerks factory on Calloway VI is the only manufacturer of the Shadow
    Hawk in the Inner Sphere, Majesty Metals and Manufacturing on Duncanshire in the Magistracy
    of Canopus still produces the old SHD-2H design.  The Federated Commonwealth has recently
    been purchasing most of these, reportedly modifying them and sending them to new march
    militia or reselling them to mercenary units.  The standard modification adds a medium laser
    and replaces the old Holly SRM-2 with two Federated SuperStreak Dual-SRM Launchers.
