Lieutenant Jennifer Coleby "Wedge" Hawkins is a playable character in Battlefield 3.
Hawkins is a Weapon Systems Officer in the United States Navy who co-pilots an F/A-18F fighter jet. In the fourth mission entitled Going Hunting, Hawkins is responsible for engaging targets near Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, Iran. However, during the mission, both she and her pilot begin to engage hostile jets manned by Iranian Air Force pilots. They successfully survived the dogfight and were able to return to their base.
- Jennifer is the first and so far only female playable character in the entire Battlefield series.
- She is one of two characters that do not make a full appearance nor have a speaking role, the other being Jonathan Miller.
- In the pre-mission cut-scene for Going Hunting, in the subtitles, her middle name is spelled as "Colby," but during the mission it is spelled "Coleby."
- Her call sign may be a reference to Wedge Antilles, a fighter pilot in the Star Wars films.
- She is the only playable character who does not see Henry Blackburn or meet him in the same mission.
- She is the only playable character whom the player plays as in only one mission in Battlefield 3.
- In the Battlefield 4 mission, Baku, a female helicopter pilot named Hawkins was shot down and killed trying to rescue Tombstone squad. It is unknown if this is the same person. This is unlikely however, as Hawkins is an F-18 pilot in Battlefield 3, not a helicopter pilot.
