The battleship is exceptional among Covenant vessels in that it possess twelve energy projectors, making it one of the best-armed ships within the Covenant fleet. This massive firepower allows the battleship to engage enemy vessels from extreme range and makes it ideal for defending key locations and vessels. The battleship is two kilometers long (equivalent to the RCS-class armored cruiser) and its hull bears five of the bulbous sections characteristic of Covenant vessels.
Several battleships served in the Fleet of Particular Justice during the Fall of Reach on August 30, 2552. Weeks later several battleships were among the vessels comprising the Prophet of Truth's secret fleet gathered at Unyielding Hierophant. Though these vessels were intended to attacked Earth without the knowledge or consent of the other Hierarchs, a team of SPARTAN-IIs sabotaged the platform before the invasion could commence; the battleships, as well as hundreds of other warships, were destroyed along with the station.
