The hammer fist is a UNSC Carrier, and thus is a rare sighting. It can carry up to 960 fighters and bombers, but is minimally armed and armored. It is fast for a carrier, but is still slow compared to most ships. It has contributed to several battles, but has not fought the covenant much, instead it usually acted independently and hunted down rebel forces while aiding UNSC forces that needed help. The Hammerfist was also sometimes home to platoons of EABTs, which served as it's comploment of zero-g fighters, even though it carried no marines.
