The Mako-class corvette[1] is a light warship classification in the UNSC Navy.

Background[edit]

Little is known about the Mako-class in particular, but since they are corvettes, they most likely carry lighter ship-to-ship weapons and/or troops, and unlikely to deploy its own fighter support. Mako-class corvettes were also renowned for being one of the smallest ships in the UNSC fleet mounted with a reliable, usable slipspace drive.[2]

Operational service[edit]

The Mako-class was once favored largely in part to its small size, but was eventually decommissioned due to maintenance issues.[2] Several of such corvettes were used by the Eridanus rebels at their asteroid base of Eridanus Secundus, used by the rebels as part of their improvised fleet.[1]
