Bravo 022 was a UNSC Pelican dropship aboard the UNSC Pillar of Autumn in 2552.

Operational history[edit]

Battle of Installation 04[edit]

Main article: Battle of Installation 04

When the Pillar of Autumn was shot down over Installation 04 on September 19, 2552, Bravo 022 was saved by its pilot. He launched it as Autumn was crashing. The dropship then met up with the crash survivors at Alpha Base.

On the next day, Bravo 022, along with Pelican Echo 419, conducted an airborne assault on the island fortress containing Silent Cartographer. When Mgalekgolo guarding the fortress were discovered during the mission, Cortana requested that Bravo 022 ferry in heavy weapons. Bravo 022 loaded up with a Warthog and several Rocket Launchers, but was shot down by enemy fire before managing to unload its cargo.[1] It crashed into a cliff, killing or wounding those aboard. Prior to John-117's arrival on scene, these crash survivors were rounded up and subsequently executed by Unggoy and Kig-yar forces. After the mission, the wreckage of Bravo 022 was left on the beach where it had crashed.

Trivia[edit]

In Halo: Combat Evolved, Bravo 022 has no separate in-game model of its own; the two Pelicans that drop off the Marines on The Silent Cartographer are simply two Echo 419 models, and when player discovers the dropship crash site, the ship there is a re-use of the Victor 933 model. This is not changed in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.
