Overview[edit]

Design details[edit]

The slash-g Pelican is a D75-TC Pelican dropship, modified with a ground support package. The craft is armed with two wing-mounted rotary cannons and two belly-mounted cannons.[1]

Operational history[edit]

D75/g Pelicans were employed during the Human-Covenant War. In 2526, a D75-TC/g was carried by UNSC Night Watch as it began a mission over the world of Netherop. To insert Blue Force - a combined unit consisting of Blue Team and First Platoon - Night Watch deployed its D75/g with the intent of using it as a decoy to allow the prowler to slip into Netherop's atmosphere undetected, at the cost of the gunship's crew.[1]
