Serving as successor to the Orion-class, the Argo-class Assault Carrier is a sophisticated and powerful carrier, meant as a planetary assault ship. Unlike more conventional carriers, it packs heavier armour, and bombardment weapons, in lieu of more fleet orientated weapon systems. Like wise, its ground combat complement is far larger than its space warfare complement, which is largely orientated to ground support and escort.
Its ace in the hole is its sophisticated internal factories, using reverse engineered Covenant technology to create nano-machine driven manufacturing plants, capable of quickly manufacturing required materiel from appropriate feedstock, including ammo, armour, weapons, and even entire vehicles. Such factory modules allow the ship to support even the most hazardous of ground campaigns, and even support continued function of other starships.
