The Sky Claw is a modified Arwing and Falco Lombardi's personal starfighter. It resembles the Arwing II, but it has very high speed and maneuverability, it is sleeker, and has broader wings with claw-like tips, which are directed forward rather than the traditional swept-wing design for most starfighters. It is armed with a Single Laser like the Arwing II, however, it only has one Smart Bomb for the payload and a Multi-Lock. Despite the limitation of armaments, it proves to be a very formidable ship. Its low health is its sole weakness, but this is somewhat compensated by its high Boost/Brake/Roll fuel. The ship is on a large amount of Star Fox Command's missions as Fox McCloud ran into Falco on numerous story paths. Following the Star Falco ending, it became the team's answer to the Star Fox team's Arwing.
