Echo 206 was a D77-TC Pelican dropship attached to the UNSC Pillar of Autumn in 2552.

Operational history[edit]

Battle of Installation 04[edit]

Main article: Battle of Installation 04

When the Pillar of Autumn crashed on Installation 04, this dropship was spared from destruction by its pilot, who launched it as the Autumn descended into the atmosphere.

The vessel then met up with other human survivors at Alpha Base where it was assigned to run supply missions from the Autumn to Alpha Base, along with Pelican Echo 136.[1]

Trivia[edit]

This Pelican may have been the one piloted by Warrant Officer Polaski; although the designation of Polaski's Pelican is not mentioned in Halo: First Strike, there is no mention of Echo 206 being destroyed in Halo: The Flood.
