"Fly us right into the centre of that remnant fleet, because I know that nothing save hell itself will stop us from coming home!"
―Cpt. Arthur Windzor

The Triton-class light cruiser (hull classification symbol: CL) is a line of cutting-edge cruisers that were utilised by the UNSC Navy in the immediate aftermath of the Human-Covenant War. Instantly recognisable by its unusual superstructure and adoption of frigate design theory, the Triton-class cruiser is a pioneer; an independent scout that is sent on its own far beyond the borders of Human Space. While this usually limits it to solitary use, its unique qualities ensures it functions well within an existing unit, and as such it can be found as a powerful escort and picket ship for carrier groups.

The Triton-class is an unusual case of a warship as it forgoes existing technologies in favour of newly-released and experimental components, resulting in it becoming one of the most advanced ships in the UNSC fleet. Even its conventional armaments are revisions of previous models, field-testing what may eventually become the standard.
