Echo India Bravo 08 (EIB-08) was an SKT-29 Bumblebee formerly attached to the UNSC Infinity and the companion lifeboat to Papa Tango Delta 09.[1]

Service history[edit]

Battle for Zeta Halo[edit]

Main article: Battle for Zeta Halo

On December 12, 2559, the UNSC Infinity was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Captain Thomas Lasky was evacuated from the ship, and UNSC forces were ordered to evacuate from the ship. Echo India Bravo 08 was boarded by SPARTAN-IV Bonita Stone and five marines. Stone and her Personal AI Ouco piloted the Bumblebee through the raging battle while also attempting to guide Papa Tango Delta 09. Both lifeboats managed to fly through a destroyed Banished dreadnought, though only Echo India Bravo 08 came out unscathed. The lifeboat crash-landed on the surface of the ring,[1] near UNSC Mortal Reverie's crash site which would become Outpost Tremonius.[3]

The next day, as Stone and the marines conducted a recon sweep of the area, an explosion on the ring fractured its surface. Stone ordered the marines to take cover in the lifeboat, but the ground beneath the lifeboat began to crumble.[4] Using her armor's thrusters,[4] Stone pulled the lifeboat out of the breach, saving the lives of the marines.[5] The lifeboat's survivors then followed Spartan Stone, who saved more soldiers before tracking down the distress call from Papa Tango Delta 09 to rescue its crew.[6] At some point before December 18, however, all five marines from the Stone's lifeboat were killed by a unit of Banished Ghosts during a skirmish, leaving Stone with only the survivors from Papa Tango Delta 09.[7]

Echo India Bravo 08 would survive in its resting place for the next six months, even after the UNSC Mortal Reverie crashed nearby.[3][2]

Production notes[edit]

Echo India Bravo 08 can be found in the Halo Infinite campaign open world; it is located on the cliff edge near Paladin Squad.
