The B-35 Karabela-class Bomber was the UNSC Navy's primary bomber during the Fifty-Years' War. It was designed by Baran Shipyards under contract from the UNSC Navy to replace the Shortsword bomber.

Design

The Karabela was designed simply- to be a user-friendly bomber that could carry large payloads, then quickly escape from enemy counterattacks. It was also designed to fit any situation easily, with the ability to carry various types of bombs and work in both extra-atmospheric and ground assault conditions.

Armament

The B-35's main defensive weapons are its pair of directed energy cannons. Controlled by the copilot with computer-aided aiming control, these cannons are enough to knock out a fighter before they can get close enough to use their own weapons. It also has a Battleaxe missile launcher system, for engaging faster, more manueverable targets.

The Karabela can carry up to sixty bombs in its bomb bay, ranging from high-explosive, for infantry suppression, to tactical nukes to use against capital ships.

Dropship variant

One variant of the Karabela was adapted to serve as a dropship. With the bomb bay widened and the launching equipment removed, it can hold up to eight Marines to aid in ship boardings.

Servicemen's comments

"I fought on Bounteous, and those Confederate [bravos] just wouldn't give up- right until they heard some Katanas comin' in. I don't think I was so happy to see those Navy pukes in my life."
