The 105th Drop Jet Platoon was a platoon of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers in the UNSC Marine Corps.[1][note 1]

Operational history[edit]

The 105th Drop Jet Platoon saw action against the Covenant military ground forces during the Battle of Jericho VII in February 2535 where it was overrun and obliterated by a force of a thousand Unggoy. The unit's annihilation would later be avenged when the offending Unggoy were eliminated by SPARTAN-IIs, led by Chief Petty Officer John-117, in the continued skirmishes of Jericho VII.[1]

Trivia[edit]

As platoons are not given permanent numerical designations, it is possible that the 105th was in fact the "105th's drop jet platoon", although a division would reasonably have more than one such unit.
