The Black Cat-class subprowler is a classification of small exfiltration ships used by the United Nations Space Command.[2]

Specifications[edit]

Designated as "subprowlers," they have extremely limited capabilities and are used mostly as exfiltration craft to escape combat situations with stealth and ease. The Black Cat subprowlers have Slipspace capacitor of limited use; the capacitor has enough charge for about four hours. Once the capacitor exceeded this duration, the vessel would not be able to enter slipspace.[3]

Black Cats are routinely used on high-risk ops so that UNSC Special Forces can retreat quickly and easily. Each subprowler can hold approximately 38 SPARTAN-IIIs.[note 1]

Operational history[edit]

Eight such craft were inserted for the SPARTAN-IIIs during Operation: TORPEDO in 2545, but only one was used because only two Spartans, Lucy-B091 and Tom-B292, survived the engagement.[4]

List of appearances[edit]

Note[edit]

  1. ^ 300 Spartans / 8 subprowlers = 37.5 (or 38) Spartans per subprowler
