The Covenant Carrier[2] is a heavy warship classification within the Covenant Navy. It is 1,455 meters long[3] and is armed with Pulse Laser turrets and two plasma torpedoes.

Overview

Its primary role in combat is to dispatch single ship star fighters and other smaller ships, as it boasts three squadrons of Seraph fighters [4], two hundred Banshees and thirty-four Spirits/Phantoms. These ships are carried in the thirteen launch bays [5].

It has been hypothesized that since the Covenant Carrier is longer than the Covenant Cruiser and much more uncommon in a Covenant fleet, it is most likely a more powerful warship overall. Alternatively, it is likely used for command and control of large numbers of warships and deploying waves of star fighter craft.

There may be some dispute over the length of the Carrier, for example in Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, it mentions that the Incorruptible, a Reverence-class Cruiser, which is 3000 meters long, took cover behind the Carrier Lawgiver. However, the Incorruptible merely took cover behind the other ship, using the Carrier's shields as a barrier to protect itself.
