The entire show is built on the facts that A) Airwolf is the most advanced helicopter on the planet, B) all of the vehicle plans are stored exclusively in the on-board computers of Airwolf itself, and C) the man who designed the thing stole it. So, when they finally succeeded in building Airwolf II (a.k.a. Red Wolf), why did they store the plans for Red Wolf exclusively in Red Wolf's own onboard computer?
- Only Moffet and Winchester knew about this ability of the original. In Airwolf II, it's marketed as an additional security feature.
- As noted by Hawke, the Red Wolf's "creator" apparently didn't design the weapons system, given that he kept missing.
Stringfellow Hawke: The is no way that you designed Airwolf's weapons, with aim that bad!
Stringfellow Hawke, after the Red Wolf's "creator" misses and ends up shooting the mountainside: You just killed a mountain!
