Reputation Wolfhound's accomplishments during the war and the fact of being led by a Ferrymen founder have given it great notoriety in certain circles. However, recent (non-disclosed) events have also led certain levels of the government to develop reservations about their activities.

Wolfhound is a paramilitary organization founded in the wake of the 2011 upheaval of the United States. It began as a squad with the Resistance, whose name and reputation was carried over into a private military company lawfully incorporated at the end of 2015. All told, Wolfhound has spent the last seven years hunting down fugitives from the former US Government who eluded prosecution in the Albany Trials. Wolfhound also acts as a suppressing force against anti-Evolved paramilitary groups, rogue elements of the former US Military, and other nascent threats. While they are not officially recognized by the government, their services have on occasion been retained to hunt down and capture fugitives for trial.

Wolfhound Assets

Tlanuwa (X-52 ROOK)

The X-52 ROOK is a unique, hybrid-wing aircraft with similar flight capabilities as modern VTOL aircraft and serves as a personnel transport and versatile attack vehicle. The Rook is able to reach high speeds through two powerful jet engines located at the rear of the ship. Additionally, the Rook possesses linear aerospike engines across its tail which assist in low-speed maneuverability. It possesses two large, angle-adjustable rotors, one housed in each wing, which grants the aircraft its vertical take off and landing capabilities. The Rook also has adjustable wing tips that can be angled down to intensify the lift of the wing rotors and modify the movement of the ship depending on whether it is flying at high or low speeds. This gives the Rook unprecedented maneuverability as it can make full stops mid-air, hover in place, and make incredibly tight turns compared to conventional aircraft.

The Rook is armed with a GAU-17/A Gatling Gun mounted on the underside at the front of the jet. It is also outfitted with chaff and flare countermeasures launched from rear-facing pods.

As an experimental aircraft, the X-52 Rook was not mass-produced and only nine were manufactured prior to the Second American Civil War. The greatest challenge with the Rook's design is maintenance. Unlike most military and commercial aircraft engines, which are mounted on structures under the wings so as to be easy to remove for maintenance because removing two large pins detaches the entire engine. Withh the X-52, the tail-mounted engines are substantially more difficult to maintain and makes the aircraft require longer periods of downtime for maintenance. This tail mounted design also shifts the centre of gravity backward, which by necessity was offset by a heavy nose, making piloting the X-52 Rook challenging for new pilots.

The X-52 Rook features a rear-accessed cargo hold with seats for twelve passengers and a cockpit for one pilot and one copilot.
