The Kronos-class Command Platform is a class of UNSC command and control space station.
The platform itself looks similar to the Oranos-class Defense platform, with a ring with a single central hallway connecting to a central "tower", housing assorted communications equipment. The "ring" housing living quarters, barracks, hangers, and "umbilicals" to connect the platform to a UNSC warship or transports. To protect it from hostile warships, the station carries a defensive armament of 8 M41 Hailstorm Naval Support Guns, as well as 20 Archer missile pods. To defend against hostile fighters, boarding craft, and interdictor spacecraft, the station carries 20 Windstorm Close-in Weapon Systems, 10 Firestorm Close-in Weapon Systems and 10 Windstorm Close-in Weapon Systems. To further protect against hostile fighters and warships, the station has a compliment of 24 F-406 Katana fighters and 12 F-41C Broadsword interdictors, as well as two platoons of Marines to repel boarders. A heavy-duty tram system runs within the platform for easy transportation of both personnel and cargo.
The Kronos is used to direct orbital operations around a planet. Its roles include controlling and directing the defence grid, monitoring shipping, directing maritime protection and patrol craft, monitoring inbound traffic through the slip space probes and directing shipping.
- The Kronos-class CP is named after Kronos, Titan of Time and father of the first six Greek deities
