Overview

The Covenant Frigate[1] is a medium-tonnage warship, seeming to be among the smallest, and most common warship types in the Covenant Navy. These starships are equipped with multiple pulse lasers and 1-3 Plasma Torpedo launchers on a lateral surface. They have participated in most Covenant-UNSC engagements. They are larger than a UNSC Frigate or UNSC Destroyer, and like most other Covenant warships, they have a curving, bulbous shape.

Furthermore, the Sangheili also equipped their warships with anti-Plasma Torpedo "counter guiding signal" systems.[2] The Jiralhanae stole this technology during the Covenant Civil War and equipped some of their Frigates, such as the Reverant, Twilight Compunction and Tenebrous with such devices. However, they did not understand the full intricacies of the system, thus limiting their effectiveness.

At the Battle of Reach, two Covenant Frigates made a Slipspace microjump in pursuit of the UNSC Prowler Circumference after its failure to enact the Cole Protocol. The Frigates then released Sangheili Rangers to board the UNSC Prowler to recover the NAVCOM core, but ended up failing.
