CH-01, named Kirk and formerly known as SPARTAN-005, is a member of the Human Cybernetization Project.
Born in 2510, Kirk was one of 150 children kidnapped at the age of six by ONI for the SPARTAN II project. Unlike, Ajax-013, Kelly 087, Frederic-104, John-117 and the other operational SPARTAN IIs, Kirk's body could not handle stress of the augmentation procedure and was crippled. For the next 35 years of his life, Kirk was confined to a gel tank and placed in a non-combatant role, as he was still of great intelligence, in spite of the extesive damage to his body. After the end of the Human-Covenant War in 2553, Kirk and several other crippled ex-SPARTAN IIs requested to be cryogenically frozen until "such time as the technology exists to return them to normal functionality.
Human Cyberneticization Project
In 2581, humanity made first contact with a race of advanced cyborgs known as the Machina, whose cyberneticization methods promised to enable humans who had been crippled in accidents to gain a new body, more powerful than that of a healthy, unaugmented human. In 2583, with the help of Machina frame-manufacturers, the UNSC began the Human Cyberneticiztion Project, a project meant to increase the number of potential recruits for combat roles by allowing those who are crippled to enter the military and create powerful super soldiers to supplement the SPARTAN IV project. Many who had been crippled by accident of disease to were offered the chance to gain a new body in exchange for military service. Kirk and the other crippled SPARTAN IIs were unfrozen immediately. Kirk and every last one of the other crippled IIs took up the offer immediately.
Kirks's first mission during Operation: HELLFIRE was to disable one of seven anti-air batteries surrounding the Covenant fortress of Sacred Truth. Kirk, along with two other CHs an ODST squad under the command of Lt. Michael Price dropped in under cover of darkness near the AA battery, which had been disabled by an orbital EMP strike. Kirk and the other ODSTs approached the base cloaked by active camouflage. Kirk used his frame-mounted M41B2 anti-tank missile launcher to knock out multiple Wraiths and a few other vehicles, Sarah East and CH-07 (Sergei Milanich) destroyed the rest. The rest of the ODSTs and CHs suppressed the Jiralhanae trench line around the AA battery with grenade launchers, automatic weapons, and sniper fire. After the trench line was suppressed, the three CHs lead the assault on the trench line, followed by the ODSTs. In the assault, Kirk also scored multiple kills with his M389 machine gun. The CHs and ODSTs proceeded to seize the base and disable or destroy all Covenant AA batteries. This, along assaults on the other six batteries by other ODST teams paved the way for a successful UNSC aerial and armored assault on the base.
Operation ORPHEUS was a mission to rescue wounded UNSC and other AUR prisonors from a Necros Slaughterhouse-class Conversion Ship. After the UNSCAF 3rd Canadian Volunteer Squadron, a unit of F/I-905 Claymore Fighters lead by Major Ross East Jr. eliminated the Slaughterhouse-class's escorts and air defenses,The Cyberneticized Humans Kirk and Rene, along with several IBSTs boarded the Necros vessel. Kirk, Rene and the IBSTs entered via the ship's hanger. The CHs and the IBST managed to eliminate the Necros guards, destroy the Conversion lines, rescue several prisoners, including David Kilgore, a Revenant would later lead the 134th Special Forces Operational Detachment. The IBSTs managed to place the explosive charges by the engine core and escape the vessel with the CHs and prisoners before the charges detonated and destroyed the ship.
Kirk's frame is a heavy weapons variant designed by a team of Machina and UNSC engineers. The frame's left shoulder carries a retractable 7.62mm machine gun for use against infantry and light vehicles. The right shoulder houses a 2-barreled missile launcher, which is basically a modified M41, capable of firing SABRE anti-tank missiles and CANINE SAMs, for engaging heavy armor and aircraft. Kirk's frame has two M025 light rocket launchers, usually mounted on rifles, which fire airbursting mini-rockets for use against fortified positions, light vehicles and large groups of infantry. The frame is also equipped with night and thermal vision systems, a targeting computer for CANINE and SABRE missiles and a GPS navigation system.
