The Crav is an armored ground vehicle designed for the low-profile transport of high-value civilian Sangheili.[1]


Design details[edit]

Essentially an armored personnel transport, the Crav is intended to be used for the incognito movement of Sangheili dignitaries. The vehicle hovers off of the ground using a propulsion field similar to the kind utilized in most Covenant ground vehicles. At the fore of the Crav is the operator compartment, which sits lower than the rear passenger cabin. The operator compartment features a forward viewscreen and openable canopy to be used for entrance and exit. Between the operator compartment and the passenger cabin is a partition that can be lowered into a socket, allowing the operator to speak with the passengers. The passenger cabin can seat six occupants and is armored so that it can deflect strikes from most portable plasma cannons - though is considered a soft target against antimatter and hard light weaponry. On either side of the passenger cabin are gull-wing doors with firing ports accessible from a pair of rear-facing saddles.[1] The Crav contains three microphones within the passenger compartment for conversing with the operator when the partition is raised, and for communication via exterior comm and monitoring devices.[2]

The Crav does not feature any weapon mounts aside from several holsters and scabbards within the passenger cabin that can be used to store small arms such as Nakata'vho-pattern plasma repeaters and Gadulo-pattern needle rifles—weapons which could be fired through the ports on the vehicle's side doors.[1]

Development history[edit]

The Crav is manufactured by Iruiru Armory in western Yermo.[1]


Following the High Gathering between Arbiter Thel 'Vadam of the Swords of Sanghelios and several high kaidons three days after the Razing of Oth Sonin in November 2559, Thel 'Vadam, Usze 'Taham, and Kola 'Baoth returned to Vadam keep in a Crav operated by N'tho 'Sraom. During the trip, they were stopped by a patrol of Created armigers and forced to relinquish their weapons.[1]
