Chronological and affiliation




This transport craft is a type of civilian transport aerospace ship.



The vessel can accommodate at least 600 people.[2] On their undercarriage, they are capable of hauling up to five massive cargo containers. The cargo container has the following dimensions: length=5.37 meters (17.63 ft), width=12.0 meters (39.41 ft), and height=6.53 meters (21.42 ft).[1]

The ship has VTOL capabilities.[2][3]

Service history[edit]

Attacks in the Epsilon Eridani system[edit]

In use during the Battle of Tribute and the Fall of Reach, at least five were used to evacuate both soldiers and civilians from New Alexandria during the Covenant invasion of Reach. During this evacuation, one of these ships was destroyed upon take-off from the New Alexandria Starport. The craft were under attack from Covenant ground forces and were close to being overrun, while an SDV-class heavy corvette over the starport prevented them from taking off. As the situation got desperate, SPARTAN-B312 fired a missile battery at the corvette, severely damaging it and forcing the corvette to retreat, just in time for the transports which were able to take off and get to safety.[2] Around this time, such craft were used to evacuate the populace of Casbah City, Tribute, another planet in the Epsilon Eridani system.[3]

Decommissioned ships[edit]

At some point prior to August 2552, several dozen of these transports were decommissioned in the Asźod ship breaking yards, like the frigates and cruisers seen near them.[4][5]


During the peace negotiations between the Sangheili and the Jiralhanae in 2558, the transport craft DS-004 served as a diplomatic shuttle for the ambassadors, transporting them to the surface of Ealen IV.[6]

List of appearances[edit]


  1. ^ It is likely that these craft are equipped with slipspace drives, in order to ferry the civilians aboard safely away from Tribute/Reach without having to use valuable military craft, as if they did not have slipspace drives equipped, they would unlikely be able to escape the system intact, as Covenant fleets were spread throughout the Epsilon Eridani system.
