CCS-U624 is a CCS-class battlecruiser from the Fleet of Glorious Interdiction that is known only by its UNSC designation.

History[edit]

In February 2531, after the location of the Outer Colony of Arcadia was discovered during the Harvest campaign, the CCS-class battlecruiser that would become known as CCS-U321 was sent to the planet alongside the battlecruiser that would become known as CCS-U624. Upon arrival, both ships were attacked by the UNSC Pillar of Autumn, the UNSC Belfast, the UNSC Texas and the UNSC Armstrong. The four UNSC vessels managed to catch CCS-U321 with its shields down and destroy it, but CCS-U624 destroyed the Belfast and the Texas and caused heavy damage to the Armstrong and the Pillar of Autumn before continuing on. After the space battle, U624 moved planet-side and started deploying ground forces, quickly overwhelming the UNSC troops there.

When the UNSC Spirit of Fire arrived at Arcadia after the space battle, the ship's smart-AI Serina reported on the events to Captain James Cutter.[1]

Given that the UNSC were successful in repelling the assault, it is highly probable that U624 retreated or was destroyed in its attempt to escape the planet.

Trivia[edit]

CCS-U624's designation, as well as that of CCS-U321, resembles those of German U-boats during World War II.
