79th Cruiser Squadron



Naval squadron


8 Cruisers


"Bow down to the Seventy-Ninth."


The 79th Cruiser Squadron is a subordinate unit within the UNSC Navy. It is often revered for its superior firepower and crew as all crewmen and women are picked from other units, meaning there are no rookies in the unit. The unit's superiority can be traced back to when it notably became the first squadron to operate a Halcyon-class Cruiser outside of training routines and the third to do so with a Marathon-class.
