This article is about the post-Covenant war Covenant vehicle. For other uses, see Ghost (disambiguation).
The Type-54 Rapid Attack Vehicle (T-54 RAV), more commonly identified as the Ghost by the UNSC, is a standard reconnaissance and rapid attack vehicle in service with various Covenant remnant factions.
Free from the sacrifical needs of the San'Shyuum, the Type-54 Rapid Attack Vehicle's design focuses more of driver survivability, integrated with the latest boosted-gravity drive components. With an internal fuel cell and reinforced shielding, the Type-54 RAV offers a greater level of protection and higher performance compared to the older Type-32 Rapid Attack Vehicle.
The Type-54 RAV was put into service after the end of the Human-Covenant War, with the Covenant remnants utilizing new manufacturing facilities to produce the model. The Type-54 was used in multiple battles, including the Battle of Kamchatka and various battles in the Blooding Years. By October 2558, Arbiter Thel 'Vadam had used his contacts and influence to purchase T-54 Ghosts for the Swords of Sanghelios that boasted superior armor compared to the Ghosts used by Jul 'Mdama's Covenant. A small number of Ultra Ghosts were used by Jul 'Mdama's Covenant during the Battle of Genesis. Around the same time T-54 Ghosts became popular in War Games matches aboard the UNSC Infinity.
