The Jade-class Light Carrier, also known as the emperor, is a light carrier of the UNSC. It is somewhat of an enigma in the UNSC, with its main task being a light, strike carrier, intended for rapid response or 'assassination' fighter waves. It actually lacks any heavy fighters or a large amount of bombers and is armed primarily with light fighters, medium fighters, stealth fighters and recon ships. Though originally, the few ships of this class struggled to find their role, it was discovered when the Remnant resurfaced. Operating in small 'wolf packs' of Frigates, easily keeping pace, it could provide them with fighter support. In this nature, these wolf packs hunted down many enemy convoys in enemy territory. They also saw great potential as raiders, with the Archangel catastrophically damaging a Remnant refuelling base on its own then retreating before ships came to its aid. However, their most famous use was as fighters to the bitter end. At the massive and unexpected second raid of Manheim, only two ships, specifically the UNSC Celestial Dragon and the UNSC Great Wall were at the shipyards at the time. In a valiant defence they held back numerous waves of enemy capital ships and fighters, before being overrun while trying to refuel their beleaguered fighters. Though the Celestial was destroyed and the Great Wall was crippled, they bought enough time for local patrols to arrive in system and destroy the invading force. The surviving crew received commendations for their actions and both ships were rebuilt.

Jade-class Carriers are often seen on long distance patrol missions as well as long range anti-piracy missions. They are often used as anti-insurgency missions as well, suppressing insurgent space-borne forces. They are never deployed as part of a battlegroup and are more often seen supporting frigate or destroyer squadrons, or acting in an escort role for highly important missions.

UNSC Comments

"They and quick, nippy, not under armed and can shoot out a lot of fighters when need be. I can't understand why HIGHCOM is so tetchy about using them?"

"The newer wolfpacks are these ships covered by Horus-class Light Cruisers. They are just as fast in space and back a mean whollop..."

"We don't know what others call the, but we call 'em 'Pirate Galleons'. We could teach those Jackals a thing or two about bucaneering...When we have ships raiding convoys, after disabling the ships we usually board them with the SBUL and send in those bad ass EVA guys. We steal any good material, but if the cargo are Grunts, we send them back to that shitty Methane hole they come from. However if its a troop transport for Kilo Bravos, we get the foxtrot outta there and just blow the shit outta the ship. Screw getting our arms torn off by space apes."
