The Tomahawk is virtually a walking Dreadnought. It is the second most heavily armed destroid
in the series. It is armed with heavy particle cannons carried by the Zentraedi Glaug Command Battlepod.
This is no coincidence since human mecha were reversed engineered from Zentraedi mecha found in the crashed SDF-1 Macross derelict. The Tomahawk also shares the same legs as that of the Defender destroid.
The Tomahawk was mostly used in assault and defense situations. It's heavy firepower and armor allowed it to survive a lot of enemy fire. Like most Destroids it is ill suited in close combat. Its speed was it's biggest weakness and a lot of Zentraedi mecha simply outran it.
The Tomahawk was also used in Battletech. Their it is called the Warhammer. It uses virtually the same
stats. The infamous Black Widow (aka Natasha Kerensky) of the Wolf Dragoons herself piloted one. She is one of the best mechwarriors in the battletech universe.
