The UNSC Brasidas was a UNSC Destroyer in 2552 within Battlegroup Stalingrad. The battle group had five other Destroyers[2] but they were all destroyed by the Covenant's superior fleet. [3]

Background

It was part of Admiral Carl "Buster" Patterson's task force sent to Onyx to retrieve Dr. Catherine Halsey as well as the Spartan-IIs and IIIs. During the first attack on Covenant ships in orbit in the Battle of Onyx, it was damaged extensively, suffering damage to its reactor. It then transferred its load of HORNET Mines to the Prowler UNSC Dusk. [4] It was destroyed along with the UNSC Stalingrad when Covenant reinforcements swarmed into the system.

Historical Reference

  • Brasidas (Greek 422 BC) was a Spartan officer during the first decade of the Peloponnesian War.[5]

References

  1. What those critics forgot that a UNSC Destroyer sported 2 MAC guns, 26 oversized Archer missile pods and 3 nuclear warheads. Only seven meters longer than a frigate. No single ship fighters. Almost as heavy than 2 frigates combined mass.
