- "Nothing withstands the Damocles. Nothing. When deployed to the field, it will hang over the Covenant's head like a sword of judgement."
- ―Fleet Admiral William Castle
A heavyweight bruiser, the Damocles-class Heavy Carrier is utilised as a front line carrier, breaking enemy formations with overwhelming firepower and waves of fighters and bombers, reducing its enemy to smouldering wrecks.
The Damocles uses heavy armour, and weaponry normally found on cruiser class vessels. Its multitudinous launch bays can quickly deploy fighters and bombers into the void for assault on enemy formations, allowing it to swarm enemy positions. This does come at a cost however, as the ship sacrifices ground complement in order to facilitate its role in ship-to-ship warfare.
