The M9407 Single-Occupant Independent Entry Vehicle is a post-war design pattern of drop pod in the service of the United Nations Space Command.[2][3]

Overview[edit]

Specifications[edit]

In the years following the human-Covenant war, the UNSC partnered with experienced military contractors to make a number of improvements to the drop pod platform. Advancements and improvements include (but are not limited to) more reliable in-flight communications, more powerful maneuver thrusters and limited inertial compensation, a new air brake design, significantly improved structural integrity with the incorporation of new metal matrix composites, and thermal superconducting elements incorporated into the composite heatshield. The internal harness of all post-war drop pods is also highly configurable, with hookups and system interlinks compatible with the latest ODST battledress and Spartan MJOLNIR variants.[1]

Usage[edit]

329 such drop pods are carried by the UNSC Infinity, and are deployed from R1295 Launching Systems.[4][2]

Gameplay[edit]

The M9407 appears in the Warzone gamemode in Halo 5: Guardians, used to deploy players onto the battlefield in the opening cutscene of a match. In-game, they act as static props though some house REQ terminals for players to call in weapons. The drop pods can also be spawned in Forge, alongside their associated airbrakes, as static props.
