Iron Fist was the callsign of a Pelican dropship pilot deployed to evacuate SPARTAN Beta-Red team from combat against two Covenant divisions during the Fall of Reach on August 30, 2552. On approach to Orbital Defense Generator Facility Alpha 331, Iron Fist advised Gamma 1 and Gamma 5 - commanded by First Lieutenants Jake Chapman and Buckman, respectively - to move to an evacuation point fifty kilometers west of their position. As he neared the facility, Iron Fist's Pelican nearly collided with one of three Covenant cruisers that had emerged from cloud cover above the battlefield, desperately making a last-ditch attempt to evacuate Beta-Red. Whether this attempt was successful is unknown.
