The Type-57 Troop Carrier, more commonly known as the Spirit, is an infantry and logistical dropship and utility craft manufactured by the Merchants of Qikost.[1]

Design details[edit]

The Type-57 Spirit incorporates a number of design evolutions iterated upon by the Merchants of Qikost, including a more streamlined profile, upgraded armor, improved in-atmosphere maneuverability, and faster troop-deployment. It's rumored that the Sangheili artisans responsible for the Type-57 Spirit accomplished the upgrades with the aid of a secretly-sequestered Huragok.[1]

Operational history[edit]

The Type-57 TC was put into service in the aftermath of the end of the Human-Covenant War as an improvement over the older Type-25 Spirit.[1] Jul 'Mdama's Covenant made extensive use of T-57 Spirits during the battles of Kamchatka, Genesis, Nuusra, and Sunaion. Around the same time T-57 Spirits were often used in Warzone simulations aboard the UNSC Infinity.[3]
