The Howler missile is a ship-to-ship missile used by the UNSC Navy.[1][2]

Overview[edit]

Warships usually carry Howler missiles to complement their Magnetic Accelerator Cannons. Unlike missiles such as the Archer, the Howler does not pack as powerful a punch individually, but is instead designed to overwhelm enemy defenses in mass saturation attacks against dense anti-missile networks. Accordingly, they are extremely fast and agile but lack many of the warhead options available to other systems like the Archer.[3]

Models[edit]

M96 Howler[edit]

The UNSC Infinity is armed with 500 pods of twenty M96 Howlers.[2][4] One hundred M96 Howlers can easily neutralize a Covenant destroyer, as occurred to Defender of Faith in 2553.[5]
