"The skyhunters of the Swords of Sanghelios and Covenant unleash a fusillade of flak bolts to clear the battlefield of enemy aircraft."
— Description of the T-58 AA Wraith.[2]

The Type-58 Anti-Air Wraith[1] 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.[2]

Overview and design[edit]

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.[2]

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.
