The Type-51 Individual Breaching Carapace is a type of multi-occupant orbital entry vehicle used by the Covenant remnants, namely Jul 'Mdama's faction. Developed by Lodam Armory, the T-51 IBC is the most prominent model of drop pod in the post-Covenant War era. It is used for rapid insertions to planetary targets or even enemy vessels. Mostly supplanting the single-occupant pods favored in the past, it can carry up to five occupants; for larger-scale deployment, the Covenant employs the larger Type-54 Mass Deployment Carapace. The T-51 IBC is similar in size to the multiple-troop variant used by the original Covenant but sleeker and more elongated in design. It is equipped with forward-braking thrusters for deceleration and a set of terrain-locking prongs on its underside to anchor the pod to the ground.[1]
