Named as a ThunderHawk 2 due to it sharing a large number of components in common with the SiCom ThunderHawk bomber, it is considered the successor to the outdated light bomber that had become known as the staple in pirate fleets.

Loyalists seized an abandoned SiCom production plant that specialized in producing these bombers for private military companies. The factory was previously under pirate control and the pirates were manufacturing modified ThunderHawk bombers, updated with newer sensor clusters and power plants.

As their war with the Empire continued, the Loyalists intended to replace the ThunderHawk II with the larger Shatterhawk which made better use of their limited manpower. The TH-2 continued to see use, however, as many of their ships lacked hangars large enough to field Shatterhawks.
