The Covenant Summit.

The summit is a Covenant building featured in Halo Wars. It costs 150 resources and no tech level.

It constructs units such as Banshees, Vampires and Engineers. All of the air-based unit upgrades are researched at the Summit. Unlike the UNSC Airpad which requires the second tech level, the summit can be built at a tech level of zero, making an early 'Banshee rush' fairly easy. Like all buildings in Halo Wars, it takes the color of the player's team.[1]

The summit is the Covenant equivalent of the UNSC airpad.
