The H-295 Forward Observer Module is a target designator used by the United Nations Space Command.[2] It is likely a successor to the H-165 Forward Observer Module used during the Human-Covenant War.

Overview[edit]

The H-295 target designator is a secure-linked forward observer module that can perform firing acquisitions on any selected targets, calling in close-fire support. This support can come in a variety of forms depending on the area of operation and the proximity of the target.[2] It is used to destroy enemy vehicles, vessels, and certain mission-specific objectives using available resources such as ship-mounted Magnetic Accelerator Cannons and the M510 Mammoth's dorsal mini-MAC.[3] During the initial stages of the Battle of Requiem, it was used to destroy the Forerunner gravity well generators that kept UNSC Infinity pinned down inside the shield world.[4]
