On the one hand, Air Hammer is all about speed. As aerodynamic in water as in the air he's just about the fastest creature you'll find in either realm. Combine that with the eyesight of a hawk and you've got a recon specialist without peer. Personally, however, the first impression to strike an observer would likely be one of stillness. He is a robot of few words and few unnecessary expressions or even movements, always watching and thinking but never showing what's inside, at least not until he acts quickly and decisively on it. He's not unfriendly, really, but his quiet, overly thoughtful and taciturn nature can give others that impression. Still, his actions in combat have made him quite popular with his Maximal comrades.

During the final battle with Shokaract, several realities converged into a single, apocalyptic timestorm. Beast Warriors from alternate realities emerged, including Air Hammer, B'Boom, Drill Bit, Transquito, Cybershark, Polar Claw and unidentified others, though all of them were summarily defeated. Later, the timeline bonked out of existence, making the events with Shokaract null.
Air Hammer was of the post-Reformatting Maximal High Council.
IDW Beast Wars comics
Air Hammer was one of the protoforms left behind by the crew of the Axalon on prehistoric Earth. He was activated and put in chronal phase by Razorbeast at Magmatron's request, but was protected from Magmatron's Predacon shell-program by Razorbeast's viral code.
Accompanied by Night Glider, Sonar, and Prowl, Air Hammer sped towards Razorbeast and the small group of new Maximals accompanying him. He and a phalanx of other Maximals finally reached them, just in time to fight off an army of Predacons. In the battle that ensued, Air Hammer battled Buzz Saw.
He later used his head literally against Rartorarta. And suffered no harm. He was later part of a team of fliers along with Noctorro, Scourge, Transquito, and Injector in the final battle with Shokaract. He watched in horror as Noctorro was blown to bits. His own fate is unknown.
