The dreadnought was a type of capital warship used by the Forerunner fleet. Despite their designation, they should not be confused with the keyship Anodyne Spirit, commonly referred to by the Covenant as the "Forerunner Dreadnought".

Overview[edit]

The Sojourner-class dreadnought was one notable class of Forerunner dreadnought.[1] Over nine kilometers long and massing 10 billion tons, these ships were capable of using their weapons in coordinated formations to amplify their power.[2]

One unspecified class of Forerunner dreadnought used in Offensive Bias's fleet had a mass of 37,654 tons.[3]

History[edit]

Dreadnoughts were a mainstay capital ship in the Forerunners' fleets during the Forerunner-Flood war.[2] A number of dreadnoughts were part of the IsoDidact's fleet during his retake of Installation 07 from Mendicant Bias.[4] At least 11 were used in the defense of the greater Ark in the final days of the war,[5] and several were commanded by Offensive Bias during its final battle against Mendicant.[3] A number of Sojourner-class dreadnoughts were docked at the Apex Site on the Etran Harborage, and were destroyed by the UNSC during the Battle of the Etran Harborage to prevent the Covenant from using them.[6]
