The Multiple Launch Rocket System-2 Hydra (MLRS-2 Hydra),[1] commonly known simply as the Hydra, is a weapon employed by the United Nations Space Command as part of the "Hydra" line of weapons manufactured by Chalybs Defense Solutions.[1] The weapon succeeds the previous MLRS-1 model.

Overview[edit]

Design[edit]

It uses gyroscopically stabilized, high-explosive micro-missiles capable of locking onto enemy targets similar to the Covenant's Kopasa'mada-pattern plasma launcher.[1] Warnings on the body of the MLRS-2 Hydra recommend using only approved UNSC munitions.[3]

History[edit]

MLRS-2 Hydra units are either tested or manufactured at the Seattle Complex, United Republic of North America.[3] Succeeding the MLRS-1 model, the MLRS-2 was in use by UNSC forces by 2559. In this time, it was employed during the Battle for Zeta Halo.[1] While fighting the Master Chief, the Jiralhanae Warlord Tremonius used a Hydra against the Spartan.[4]

Variants[edit]

The Pursuit Hydra
  • Pursuit Hydra: The Pursuit Hydra locks onto targets more quickly and fires projectiles at greater velocities, making it more effective at longer ranges.
