29th Fleet

Known commander(s)

Captain Falter


UNSC Gepard was a Commodus-class Destroyer in the UNSC Navy, and a part of the 29th Fleet.


Named after a German 20th Century mobile Anti-Aircraft gun, the Gepard was one of the several Commodus-class destroyers within the 29th fleet. With Captain Falter at the helm, it was, like most of the other destroyers, used as an escort for larger vessels in the fleet. However, it was slowly modified to become a dedicated gun platform, with a larger amount of ship-to-ship weaponry onboard.

This change of its weapons systems meant it lacked the space for infantry transport, but excelled in the range of firepower. Serving from its date of completion in 2564 all the way through to 2578, when it was involved in Operation: FIRESTORM. During the ensuing conflict, it took heavy damage from multiple Covenant ships, and the crew were forced to abandon the Gepard. The majority of the crew members and the officers made it off the ship alive, including the captain and the ship's smart AI, which remotely detonated the engine cores of the wreckage as a Covenant cruiser passed by it, to aid in the fight.
