The Sahara-class heavy prowler[1] is a class of stealth vessel in the UNSC Navy. Like most prowlers, ships of the class are designated with the hull classification symbol PRO, followed by a numeric designation.[2]

Specifications[edit]

Design details[edit]

Like most prowlers, the Sahara-class is equipped with stealth systems that mask the ship from both visual and sensor detection. These systems include an active camouflage, leaving the prowler nearly invisible to the naked eye.[3]

The ship has a ventral launch bay fitted with hook systems used to deploy EVA maneuvering vehicles.[2]

Armament[edit]

Since prowlers usually avoid combat, besides active combat monitoring and recording, the armaments and weapon systems on a Sahara-class prowler is limited. They are armed with several XEV9-Matos Nonlinear Pulse Cannons, allowing the prowlers to protect themselves if they are attacked. Sahara-class prowlers are usually equipped with at least one M947 Shiva Nuclear Delivery System. The main armament of the prowler is its M441 Hornet Remote Explosive System. With the mines, the prowlers lay out minefields in space for enemy ships to unknowingly enter.[1]

Operational history[edit]

Sahara-class prowlers had entered service with the UNSC Navy by 2526, where each of the three squadrons of Task Force Yama were led by a heavy prowler.[4] In 2553, after the Human-Covenant War, the Sahara-class prowler UNSC Port Stanley was used as transportation for the Office of Naval Intelligence black ops team known as Kilo-Five.[5] In 2558, the Sahara-class prowler UNSC Aladdin was used to transport Dr. Catherine Halsey, incarcerated by ONI for war crimes, to the UNSC Infinity.[3] In May 2558, SPARTAN-IVs Naiya Ray and Gabriel Thorne used a Sahara-class prowler to investigate a biological agent, created by several Kig-Yar, on Ven III.[6]
