Echo 002 was a FSS-1000 Sabre that fought during Operation: UPPER CUT alongside Noble Team. The Sabre defended Anchor 9 when the station came under attack of Covenant Elsedda-pattern Banshees and Type-31 Seraphs, then participated in the assault on the Ceudar-pattern heavy corvette Ardent Prayer. During the assault on the Covenant corvette, the pilot of Echo 002 questioned where enemy reinforcements were coming from. Echo 002 was one of the four Sabres that landed in the topside hull of the corvette along. The pilot was killed during the skirmish onboard, and the Sabre was thrown into slipspace along with the Ardent Prayer at the conclusion of the operation.[1] [Note 1]

List of appearancesEdit


  1. ^ Three Sabres landed on the Ardent Prayer with Bravo 029, and all three pilots were male. Given that the pilot of Echo 001 was female, it likely implied that Echo 001 did not participate in the boarding action, leaving the three remaining Sabres as the only units that could have boarded the corvette.
