The Small Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nanus) is a species of bird of prey in the Accipitridae family. It is endemic to Indonesian islands of Sulawesi and Buton. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and to a lesser degree lowland forests. It closely resembles the fellow Wallacean Vinous-breasted Sparrowhawk, but is still thought to be most closely related to Besra. All this makes it rather difficult to identify and thus possibly under-recorded. More

First built in 2525, the small Sparrowhawk was designed to provide a fast, maneuverable fighter escort for larger attack craft. Severe difficulties with its frame design resulted in many of the H1 through H4 models breaking up in the atmosphere, but the redesigned frame of the H5 class solved the problem. Fuel tank designs in earlier versions of the Sparrowhawk also needed reworking. More
