"Its only purpose? Filling the precious gap between our Cruiser and the Infinity-class Heavy Carrier-Cruiser"
―Captain James Willow


These ship were created in the years after the Great War to fill the perceived gap left by the UNSC super carrier. They were created by the Reyes-Mclees shipyard in order to create new ship to support the UNSC Fleets. Helped by the Sangheili to include new technology system as well as better shield generator for their ship the UNSC created the Apophis-class heavy Carrier a balance between fire power, troop carrier and fighter capacity.It was a radical change in the ship design optimizing frontal assault, the front of the ship houses the heavy MAC gun. This ship includes a pair of Hangars features on two arms outside the ship that usually house the fighter and bomber compliment, allowing them to rapidly throw out masses of ships at the enemy.

UNSC Comments

"Its real purpose? Providing back up fighter forces and emergancy muscle to fleet actions, when fighters are at a premium."

"Its not bad at orbital assaults. Its just fast enough and armoured enough to break past defences without anything serious."

"One of these supported the landing at Linna Beta, bringing in some real heavy ordnance for our forward Frigate landing groups. Damn happy for that."
