The term glassing, more formally known as plasma bombardment, is used to refer to the act by which a Covenant ship or ships bombard a planet from orbit by using heavy plasma weaponry. The process of glassing a planet begins when a fleet has achieved air and space superiority on an enemy-controlled world. The specifics of the glassing process vary depending on the strategic significance of the planet or the orders of the Fleet Master.
