Vindication-class light battleship H4-Vindication.png At some point prior to the Battle of Alpha Corvi II, the 1.6 kilometre-long Vindication-class light battleship entered service.[1] Several Vindication-class light battleships vessels engaged the Didact's flagship over Earth in support of the UNSC's own flagship, Infinity. Three Vindications later participated in the Requiem Campaign.[2][3]

Rasus-pattern interdictor Heaven's Brilliant Bier, as depicted in HWG. The Covenant used two-kilometer-long battleships during the Human-Covenant War, particularly during the Fall of Reach.[4] A significant number was later amassed at the space station Unyielding Hierophant, though they were destroyed in Operation: FIRST STRIKE.[5]
Kewu-pattern battleship A Kewu-pattern battleship along with 3 CAS-class assault carriers during the Fall of Reach on morning of August 30, 2552. The Kewu-pattern was comissioned, unusually, by the Ministry of Concert during the Ninth Age of Reclamation. This was viewed as highly unusual, and the design broke many conventions of naval architecture and pattern approval processes, though was ultimately blessed by the Hierarchs in an extremely unorthodox process.[6] One of these vessels was present at the Fall of Reach, during the battle it destroyed many UNSC ships, including the Musashi, the Minotaur and the Herodotus, but the vessel was ultimately destroyed by the UNSC Pillar of Autumn.[7]
