The Covenant Battleship[2] was a heavy capital Warship classification within the Covenant Navy. This warship was two kilometres long, had five bulbous sections and bristled with a dozen Energy Projectors - enough weapons and firepower to decimate any UNSC Fleet from long range. It was larger than most Covenant warships, even surpassing the keel length of the CCS-class Battlecruiser, but itself was dwarfed by the Covenant Flagship (Flagships seem usually to be Assault Carriers or Supercarriers (Sublime Transcendence) not a separate class as is sometimes stated) and the Covenant Assault Carrier.

Background

Multiple battleships defended the Unyielding Hierophant. [citation needed]

A battleship was encountered by the UNSC Heracles, UNSC Vostok, and UNSC Arabia as well as the forces under Vice Admiral Preston Cole in the Second Battle of Harvest[3]. It single handedly destroyed thirteen ships in Cole's fleet before being destroyed by concentrated fire.

Appearance

The Battlecruiser is made up of five primary bulbous sections and appears as a light shade of purple. It is one of the largest ships in the Covenant fleet. It's extremely well-armed and boasts three energy projectors near the fore of the ship and four to six on its stern. Various Pulse Laser Turrets and plasma torpedo tubes litter the hull as well.

Though most of its power is likely used up by the large number of energy projectors it uses in battle, the ship still can project a shield strong enough to protect it from multiple nuclear missiles and MAC rounds. However, the shield and hull will buckle under concentrated fire as shown when the 27 ships left in Cole's fleet were able to destroy one.
