Will-043, describing FENRIS nuclear warheads[1]

The FENRIS Nuclear Warhead is a type of UNSC nuclear weapon.

Contents

Description

FENRIS warheads had superhardened cases to contain the detonation longer and boost the thermonuclear yield.[2] The hardened cases also made them resilient to nearby explosions, so resilient in fact that they were regarded as useless without the detonation codes. FENRIS warheads are considered low-yield devices.[3]

They may be detonated by remote[3] or by pressing the warhead's detonator in person.[4]

History

In 2531, the United Rebel Front possessed three FENRIS warheads at Camp New Hope on Victoria. The weapons were recovered by SPARTAN-II Blue Team.[2]

By 2552, the FENRIS was slated for decommissioning. However as the Human-Covenant War made a turn for the worse and the UNSC's nuclear stockpile dwindled, they were returned to service.[3]

During the Battle of Earth, SPARTAN-II Blue Team recaptured 12 FENRIS warheads from the Covenant at the Centennial Orbital Elevator. At the top of the elevator, six armed warheads were smuggled aboard a Covenant destroyer while another destroyer, Bloodied Spirit was commandeered by Blue Team. The enemy destroyer was destroyed by a combination of internal nuclear detonations and plasma torpedo fire. Blue Team then made the slipspace jump to Onyx.[3]

As the Battle of Onyx drew to a close, Kurt-051 manually detonated 2 FERNIS warheads to deny the Covenant access to the Micro Dyson Sphere.[4]

Trivia

  • Fenrir is a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology.
