The Banished operate several custom Shade turret designs.

Operational history[edit]

The Banished operated Shade turret designs during the Second Ark Conflict in 2559. They were used by Yapyap's rebellion, and crewed with Unggoy gunners.[1] In May of the same year, the Banished used them to fortify key positions on a Halo installation.[2]

Variants[edit]

The Banished have been observed employing two distinct Shade turret models. The first consists of a chassis similar to that of the Type-29 and Type-55 models, featuring an extensive layer of additional armor plating and a more enclosed cockpit to protect the operator.[1] The second bears more resemblance to the Type-26 models, albeit with armor plating substituted for energy shielding visually similar to that of the drop wall.[2]
