UNSC Basra was one of the finest ships of the UNSC Navy in service during the Human-Covenant War. Basra saw action, and was irreparably crippled by the Covenant, at the Fall of Reach. After the battle, the Covenant moved many of the large hulks, including Basra's, into a large "graveyard" over Reach's northern pole.
The ship was likely named after the Iraqi city of Basra.
