Pilot Remover Mark III
Description: 3ft long wooden shaft, 7lb head made of
plasteel. Head is generally painted Wolfshead. As with the crowbar,
owners often make their own modifications, e.g. Mooses has small
antlers painted on the head while Hardrive has fitted his with
a small rocket motor so the head can be ejected from the shaft.
Granite is rumoured to have fitted a small concussion missile
in to the head of his "In case of emergencies".
On the formation of Wolfshead, it was decided that
the new male pilots should also have a weapon along the lines
of the ceremonial crowbar. Having proven itself reliable in
this field, Strongbow Industries was awarded the contract. A
few weeks later the design of a prototype was given to Wolfshead
Squadron. In a field test which involved dropping Granite and
the hammer into a small Imperial garrison, the sledgehammer
was given a rigorous work out, after which Granite concluded
"Great fun, can I keep it?". Given this recommendation
by the squadrons resident weapons expert, Strongbow Industries
was given the contract to produce as many sledgehammers as was
While the initial designation for the sledgehammer is the same
as for the crowbar (to remove over-amorous pilots), this has
not been such a problem for the male pilots in the squadron
(no comment). However, the sledgehammer has occasionally been
put in to use in an escort function, defending the ladies of
Wolfshead from their followers.* More commonly they are used
in Wolfshead Squadrons occasional boarding operations, being
useful against stormtroopers. None are available for comment
as it takes them about four hours to regain consciousness, and
no-one could be bothered waiting around to question them. Again,
like their predecessor, they are especially useful for opening
crates and barrels of cargo liberated from the Empire.
that they actually need the protection, they just like
to pretend they do.
