"The results speak for themselves. Squadrons lead by a Tyne-class suffer half as many casualties, while performing nearly 30% better in combat."
―Vice Admiral Eric Smith-Yates
A vital warship in the UNSC’s ongoing growth, the Tyne-class Command Destroyer is a specialised vessel meant for leading squadrons of destroyers and frigates into battle. Often seen commanding Wolfpack squadrons, it is also used in destroyer squadrons supporting fleet actions. Internal space has been set aside for command and control features, and long distance communication arrays. With these, the ship can actively coordinate several vessels over long distances, using its expanded facilities to guide them through battle.
