Echo 003 was a FSS-1000 Sabre that fought during Operation: UPPER CUT alongside Noble Team. The Sabre defended Anchor 9 when the station came under attack of Covenant Elsedda-pattern Banshees and Type-31 Seraphs, then participated in the assault on the Ceudar-pattern heavy corvette Ardent Prayer. Echo 003 was one of the four Sabres that landed on the topside hull of the corvette. The pilot was killed during the skirmish onboard, and the Sabre was thrown into slipspace along with the Ardent Prayer at the conclusion of the operation.[1] [Note 1]

List of appearances[edit]


  1. ^ Three Sabres landed on the Ardent Prayer with Bravo 029, and all three pilots were male. Given that the pilot of Echo 001 was female, it likely implied that Echo 001 did not participate in the boarding action, leaving the three remaining Sabres as the only units that could have boarded the corvette.
