Specifications[edit]

Description[edit]

The Umbra is an arch-shaped ground vehicle that features the same anti-gravity technology most standard Covenant ground vehicles use. At the top of the Umbra's arch is the driver's cockpit and a gunner's seat with a plasma cannon. Below the driver and gunner seats is the carrier pod. On each side of the Umbra's carrier pod is a square, luminous touchpad that, when pressed, releases the lock and causes the outer wall to lower and extend a ramp leading into the vehicle.[1] The ramp on each side of the vehicle leads to ten troop stations for a total of twenty troop stations per carrier pod.[2]

Operational History[edit]

In 2526, Kelly-087 witnessed the Covenant deploy two Umbras via air drop by a Super Spirit on Netherop. With some assistance, Kelly-087 was able to secure an Umbra [1] and rendezvous with Amalea Petrov and her First Platoon in order to aid John-117 and the rest of Blue Team on their mission to secure the Covenant frigate, Lucky Break.[2]
