Vindication-class light battleship
The Vindication's hull is rather flat, though the bow slants upward and forward. Several antennae protrude from the fore end. The ship has one large, primary thrust nozzle and four smaller, secondary nozzles.
The class had entered service as early as 2525. Several helped defend Alpha Corvi II from the Covenant in December of that year. At least one was present at the UNSC Infinity's commissioning ceremony. Several Vindications were part of Battle Group Dakota and attacked the Mantle's Approach during the Didact's attack on Earth in July of 2557. During the Requiem Campaign, at least three ships of this class deployed fireteams to the surface in order to find Dr. Catherine Halsey after her abduction at the hands of the Covenant.
