Type-58 Anti-Air Wraith
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
This article is about the Anti-Aircraft Wraith introduced in Halo 5: Guardians. For the variant introduced in Halo 3 see Type-52 Anti-Aircraft Wraith
The Type-58 Anti-Air Wraith is a specialized version of the Type-58 Wraith used by the Jul 'Mdama's Covenant and the Swords of Sanghelios. Unlike the base T-58, the Anti-Air Wraith is designed to take out airborne targets.
Overview and design
Sporting a far more Sangheili-derived design, the T-58 anti-air Wraith features heavy armor, fuel rod flak cannons, and a shielded plasma repeater turret. On some units, members of the Swords of Sanghelios have incorporated a verdant iridescent sheen into the coloration; a poignant homage commissioned by Thel 'Vadam to honor the Sangheili that fought alongside human forces at the close of the Human-Covenant War.
Unlike its predecessor, the T-58's fuel rods have a stronger home in on aircraft within the crosshair but the firepower has been reduced; The cannons also overheat from excessive use, making it somewhat less effective against ground forces. In War Games simulations it takes 4 fuel rods to kill a Spartan. Similarly the AA Wraith's plasma repeater turret also kills Spartans in 4 shots. It is ranked a Rare REQ in Warzone simulations, and is available at level 5 while giving 150 REQ points if sold.
Like the standard Type-58 Wraith, it can perform a Super Glide.
