The Ptah-class Repair Platform is a class of UNSC space station. It is used for repairing spacecraft, and can accommodate any spacecraft in the UNSC inventory.
The Ptah-class repair platform is a large, rectangular structure, with a total of twelve umbilicals capable of docking any spacecraft in the UNSC arsenal, five extending from each of the long sides and one on each of the "short" sides. Within the rectangular body, there are a number of large hangers and storage rooms for repair equipment. One of these hangers typically contains a fighter squadron for defense and dropship squadron for transportation to and from the station, while the others are left open for any spacecraft up to the size of a Prowler for the duration of its repairs. At on the top of the main body of the platform is a smaller structure, also rectangular in shape. This houses the command and control center, communications center, crew quarters, and fire control for the defensive armament. The platform is armed with eight M41 Naval Gun Turrets, four mounted on top and four on the bottom, along the edge of the main body, with Archer missile pods located between the gun turrets. The platform is studded on all sides with point defense lasers and missile launchers. A heavy-duty tram system runs within the platform for easy transportation of both personnel and cargo.
The Ptah is used to repair damaged warships, being capable of stripping them out and rebuilding them, with a vast store of materials and large crew. The Ptah can also re-arm combat vessels with fresh ammunition and missiles, which has to be preformed externally. Ptah stations are positioned at every major port, though are often only assigned to smaller stations, with larger ships being sent to shipyards and planetary stations.
- The Ptah-class RP is named after Ptah, the Egyptian god of construction.
