Chronological and affiliation




The Despair-class fighter, also known as the Despair-class hunter-killer, was a classification of Forerunner fighter craft. They were described as curved and sleek in design.[1]

Operational history[edit]

Despair-class hunter-killers were present at the Battle of Janjur Qom.[1] At the close of the Forerunner-Flood war, multiple Despair-class fighters were stationed at Requiem in defense of the shield world.[3] Several Despair-class fighters saw action against the rogue Contender-class artificial intelligence Mendicant Bias. After the firing of the Halo Array, some of the Despair-class fighters were moved to shield worlds and Halo installations. At least one Despair-class hunter-killer was moved to Installation 00 by the Librarian.[2]

On May 2559, a Despair-class fighter's design seed was found and reactivated by Colony's Huragok,[4] with the Banished planning to use the fighter to destroy the UNSC Spirit of Fire. However, their efforts were halted when the Orbital Drop Shock Trooper squad Sunray 1-1 managed to halt the fighter's launch and destroy it.[5]
