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 Mammoth's dorsal mini-MAC.[3]

Operational history[edit]

During the initial stages of the Battle of Requiem, it was used to destroy the Forerunner particle cannon network and gravity well generators that kept the UNSC Infinity pinned down inside the shield world.[4]
