Kilo 23

Kilo 23 was a United Nations Space Command Pelican Dropship stationed on Earth. Kilo 23's pilot was Hocus. In 2552, the ship was operating out of the UNSC Base codenamed Crow's Nest in Kenya, but later relocated to the UNSC Forward Unto Dawn during the Battle of Earth.[1]


Operational History


Battle of Earth

When the Master Chief returned to Earth, Kilo 23 was responsible for extracting him, Thel 'Vadam, and Sergeant Johnson from the jungle dam, A2. Hocus used the ship's heavy weapons loadout to destroy two Covenant Loyalist Phantoms in the process. Shortly after their return to Crow's Nest, the base was attacked by the Covenant. Kilo 23's escape with wounded soldiers was delayed by Jump Pack Brutes, until the Master Chief arrived to fight them off.

Battle of Installation 00

Kilo 23 was among the Pelicans aboard the Frigate UNSC Forward Unto Dawn when that ship traveled through a slipspace portal to Installation 00 (aka the "Ark"). Kilo 23, with Johnson, the Master Chief and several ODSTs aboard, successfully landed on the Ark. The ship served as backup while the Marines attempted to locate the Ark's Cartographer. Once the Prophet of Truth was located, Kilo 23 joined the strike force of Pelicans and Separatist Phantoms sent to lower the Citadel's protective shield. Encountering Heavy AA near the shoreline, Kilo 023's wingman was shot down, killing its crew and taking Kilo 023's Warthog with it, though Kilo 23 itself landed safely, later assisting the Master Chief as he made his way to the last tower.

The status of Kilo 23 is unknown after the Battle of Installation 00. It is presumed to have returned to Earth aboard the Shadow of Intent along with the rest of the surviving Humans after John-117 recovered Cortana.
