The Eklon'dal Workshop Mortar Tank[1] is a modified Muz-pattern Wraith used by the Banished. These Wraiths feature additional armor plating and spikes, tabbed corners on new plates, energy shielding, and raw metals and "war paint" to reflect the Banished's aggressive mentality in comparison to older Covenant Wraiths.[4]

Overview[edit]

Development history[edit]

Developed by the Eklon'dal Workshop and manufactured by Eklon War-Forges, the Eklon'dal Workshop Mortar Tank was one of the first Banished Wraiths ever produced. The Foundry's garage and its kit assembly line allows Banished officers to requisition Eklon'dal Workshop Wraiths.[5]

Armaments[edit]

Eklon'dal Workshop Wraiths are armed with a plasma mortar and twin plasma cannons for use against ground and air targets. The plasma cannons are hidden underneath the armor.[3]

Variants[edit]

Operational history[edit]

In March 2559 the Banished used Eklon'dal Workshop Wraiths against the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire on Installation 00.[2] In June 2559 stolen Wraiths were used by the Flood against the Banished during the Outbreak on Installation 00.[7] In October 2559 the Clan of the Long Shields used Wraiths against the Covenant loyalists and Keepers of the One Freedom during the Battle of Epsilon Clarion.[8]

Wraiths do well against infantry and vehicles, and okay against aircraft and structures. In Blitz Wraiths cost 110 energy, Ironclad Wraiths cost 140 energy, and Terror Wraiths cost 150 energy. Ironclad Wraiths agro all nearby damage from enemy units and Terror Wraiths reduce enemy units armor.
