The ships are VTOL capable, thanks to strong jet thrusters located on their ventral surface.[1][3]

During the Battle for Arcadia in 2531, three of these ships were requisitioned as evacuation transports by the Arcadian Patrol, used to airlift the inhabitants of Pirth City to safety during the battle. Cargo 3 was destroyed by enemy fire, but at least one of the other two ships, aided by Spartan Red Team and forces from the UNSC Spirit of Fire, managed to take off and escape, saving hundreds from slaughter by the Covenant.[1]

These ships were also used to evacuate civilians from Algolis during the Battle of Algolis. One of them was shot down by the Covenant, but the other, as well as a Pelican, escaped to a frigate in orbit, which was to rendezvous with the UNSC The Heart of Midlothian near the edge of the system.[3]
