The 11th Marine Force Reconnaissance/ODST (11th MFR/ODST), simply known as the 11th Recon, is a battalion of the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers,[3] a special operations capable reconnaissance force of the UNSC Marine Corps.[1]


During the early stages of the Human-Covenant War, the 11th Marine Force Reconnaissance/ODST battalion was stationed on Neos Atlantis, before they were deployed to engage the emerging Covenant threat in the Outer Colonies.[3]

During the Battle for Earth in November 2552, elements of the unit were assigned to UNSC Forward Unto Dawn shortly before she joined the Fleet of Retribution for Installation 00 via the Portal at Voi. The 11th MFR/ODST was tasked with collecting Covenant and Forerunner intelligence and matériel during Operation: BLIND FAITH.[1]
