The UNSC Kronstadt, hull classification symbol DD-993, is a Diligence-class light destroyer in the UNSC Navy.[1]

Operational history[edit]

Early use[edit]

The ship was originally a peacekeeping ship in service with the Colonial Military Authority. Prior to 2525, Kronstadt had been retired for decades. With the dawn of the Human-Covenant War, the UNSC retrieved the vessel from storage and retrofitted it into a warship for service in the conflict against the Covenant.[1]

Human-Covenant war[edit]

During or after 2540, Kronstadt was used a deployment platform for the mission Operation: GREY VEIL. During the operation, Kronstadt deployed a squad of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers and a SPARTAN-II commando, Cal-141, via M8900 SOIEV to the Covenant-occupied world of Heian. The commando team infiltrated a former alien settlement, where they engaged several Unggoy and a Jiralhanae chieftain before assassinating a Covenant Prophet. After the mission, which resulted in the deaths of the Spartan and one ODST, the vessel retrieved the survivors.[3]

Trivia[edit]

  • In The Babysitter, the Kronstadt's hull classification symbol incorrectly follows its number, being written as 993-DD. The hull classification symbol should precede the number, thus designating the ship DD-993.
  • Kronstadt is a municipal town in Kronshtadtsky District of St. Petersburg, Russia.
