The Sangheili were originally the commanders of the Covenant Army.
The Covenant Army is a branch of the Covenant Military responsible for land-based operations. It is the primary invasion force, and houses the numerous Special Operations units. [1]



The Covenant Army comprises of the majority of the Covenant's ground-based infantry and units, and is tasked with engaging the enemies of the Covenant in ground and air combat. They use a variety of equipment and weaponry. Primarily led by the Brutes (and formerly by the Elites, including the former Arbiters), the Army is comprised of most of the military-service races who act as infantry, or, in the case of Hunters, as demolitions experts and shock troops.

Because Prophets do not hold military ranks, no Prophet is truly a "member" of the Army. Instead, they command its Brute leaders as either a religious or militaristic tactician, who follow their orders and accomplish their objectives. Engineers, as primarily non-combatants, are also exempt from the Army.

Covenant Civil War

During the Covenant Civil War, or "Great Schism," the Covenant military was violently divided between the Covenant Loyalists, who continued to believe in the Prophets, and the Covenant Separatists, who followed the Arbiter against them. The Covenant Separatists crushed the Covenant Loyalists at the Battle of Installation 00 with their human allies.
