Technical specifications
 

Ultra-class armor refers to several types of armors utilized by the former Covenant empire.[1] They are of a glistening and fearsome white, and signify the individual's renown. The Ultra-class armor is not limited to Covenant infantry of the Ultra rank. It may be available to various species and ranks, and may correspond to various types of harnesses.

Overview[edit]

Sangheili harnesses that may be rated Ultra-class include the silver-colored combat harness,[2] the ornate Ultra harness variant,[3] the Honor Guard Ultra ceremonial armor,[2] the silver-colored Zealot ceremonial battle harness,[4] the silver-colored Storm harness,[5] and the silver Commander-class harness.[6]

Unggoy harnesses also comprise a variety of Ultra-rated suits: the silver-colored base combat harness (usuable by Ultras, and less frequently by Majors),[2][7] the harness for the Unggoy Ultra rank,[3] the SpecOps harness (also usable by Ultras),[2] and the Bodyguard harness.[6]

Other species also have access to Ultra-class armor, such as the Yanme'e,[8] and the Mgalekgolo.[6]

Curiously, Jiralhanae of Ultra ranks—Ultras, Captain Ultras, and Jumper Ultras—do not wear silver-colored armors, instead sporting blue or golden armors. Some Yanme'e Ultras may also wear green armor, instead of their silver-colored exoskeleton. Thus, not all Covenant who wear Ultra-class armor are Ultras, and not all Ultras wear an Ultra-class armor.

In the Spartan-IVs' Warzone combat training, Mythic Covenant bosses sport a white Ultra-class armor, and are the toughest Covenant AIs in the simulation.[9][1]

Trivia[edit]

In Halo: Reach's level ONI: Sword Base, there are Easter egg "BOB" Elites featuring eight types of special white harnesses. Since the golden Sangheili Ranger BOB has been canonized into the Sangheili Ranger Commander and a number of the white BOB harnesses also exist in-universe, it is possible all said harnesses also exist canonically.
