"Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Hotel Foxtrot, its a capital ship!"
―Anonymous Marine


The Horus-class Light Cruiser was a warship class designed for rapid reaction and interception. The ship is designed to mix high speed and decent armament to allow it to intercept warships as quickly as possible. The ship is near as fast as the Heimdall-class Frigate with much heavier armaments, heavy shielding and heavier armour.

The ship is rarely deployed in battlegroups, more often being deployed as a patrol ship close to busy planetary bodies, being used to chase down pirates, guerillas and reconnaissance forces. The UNSC Navy employs a handful of light cruiser squadrons, mostly deploying them as flankers and rapid reaction ships, to bolster defensive or offensive actions.

Isis-class Light Cruiser

The Isis-class Destroyer was a subclass of the Horus-class. The class was aesthetically the same as the Horus-class, but had an W/AS M21A 'Tsunami' DIC replacing its MAC gun. This subclass was employed extensively during the latter stages of the Necros War.

UNSC Comments

"This thing can out manoeuvre Frigates at knife fight ranges and packs more of a punch than them..."
