The Hillsborough-class heavy destroyer was a class of destroyer originally in service with the Colonial Military Authority and then the UNSC Navy.[3]

Operational history[edit]

Originally the Hillsborough-class destroyers were operated by the Colonial Military Authority. On October 7, 2525, a Hillsborough-class destroyer of Battle Group 4, CMA Heracles, was dispatched to the Epsilon Indi system to investigate the loss of communications with the planet Harvest, alongside Arabia and Vostok. Upon exiting slipstream space in the system, the three ships were attacked by a Covenant vessel. Only the Heracles survived, albeit heavily damaged, by limping back to Reach.[4] During the war, these ships were used for internal security, or were broken up for scrap.[1]
