The Horus-class carrier frigate is a class of frigates used by both the and other human factions in the Post-War era.
The carrier frigate is a variation of thehull, with its most notable modification being it's greatly expanded and elongated hangar bay. Featuring upgraded armor, engines and other improvements, it can carry more fighters than a regular frigate as well as support them during fleet engagements.
In the aftermath of the Human-Covenant War, humanity's fleets were left utterly decimated and the UNSC was in desperate need of new ships to replace their monumental losses. The carrier frigate was a concept developed due to the loss of most of the UNSC's capital ships and carriers, as well as its inability to quickly replace those losses.
The Horus-class was produced as a desperate stopgap measure to quickly provide their still-recovering Navy a relatively cheap and quick to build a ship capable of providing fighter support to their fleet, delivering sufficient numbers ofor into battle.
