"I heard that the Chieftain had laughed at the sight of the vessel, says he saw one of the same ships burn at Reach. I bet he wasn't laughing when she snapped the Assault Carrier in half."
―Vice Admiral Evelyn Walz
The Pendragon-class Super Carrier is one of the UNSC's most powerful vessels, and part of the 'Big Six'. A heavy-weight carrier, a single one of these vessels can sway an entire campaign. Possessing the heavy gravimetric plating that signifies its inclusion into the 'Big Six', and carrying two Super MACs as its primary armament, these vessels can easily smash aside Covenant threats. However, its cavernous internal bays, housing hundreds of fighters, thousands of soldiers, and even smaller starships, are its real weapon, allowing it to deploy and swarm enemy formations. Each one is equipped with command and control facilities, and wavespace superluminal communication networks, allowing it to coordinate whole campaigns. Many UNSC fleets rely on these vessels for command, zealously guarding them against any enemy threat.
