"Those guns are just for show. Its the fighters that will be crucial for our success here."
―Captain Morana Broz

The Eion-class carrier (hull classification symbol: CV) is a medium-weight carrier in service with the United Nations Space Command. It is built by the Reyes-McLees Corporation to act as a fleet carrier, providing large amounts of space fighters rather than act as the fleet's flagship.

Adopting a simplied, somewhat skeletal superstructure to make it lighter and easier to construct, the Eion-class is very lightly armed and armoured, with its secondary armaments only just outgunning the smaller the Halberd-class destroyer. This shedded weight makes it quite agile for a ship of its size, allowing it to keep up with flotillas of far smaller escorts. It then supports them with up to 80 singleships and coordinated fire support from its quick-cycling axial gun, picking up escape craft and surviving pilots before escaping at the conclusion of the engagement.

The Eion-class carrier was introduced in 2534, as a replacement to the huge casualties the UNSC took in spaceborne engagements. It first saw action at the Siege of Chi Rho, where it covered the immense orbital fortifications and rapidly transported ground troops to key theatres. Although its core idea was sound, the carrier's unexpectedly-strong frame would see them in the thick of combat, where they covered other capital ships and intercepted munitions intended for them. As a result, the Eion-class took the highest casualties of any carrier during the Human-Covenant War. Although the last UNSC-controlled carrier, the UNSC Musashi, was destroyed during the Fall of Reach, insurgent would salvage unfinished hulls and intact fallen ships to strengthen their fleets. As a result, they were a common sight on the colonial frontier for years after the war came to an end.
