"The Lord Hood represents a fundamental change in how the UNSC operates. No longer are ships constrained by where the nearest port is. The Port comes to them."
―Vice Admiral Mira Bursan.


The UNSC Lord Hood is a mobile starbase utilised by the UNSC for military operations. The largest object ever constructed by the UNSC, the Lord Hood would form a vital Lynchpin in UNSC strategic planning, and become a vital component in humanity’s ongoing struggle against the Covenant. Fulfilling the role of starbase, shipyard, and resupply facility, the UNSC Lord Hood could simultaneously keep several fleets in working order, far from home.

History

Design

Role

The Lord Hood was designed, and used, as a mobile battle station, staying within a short jump of the front line to repair, rearm, and resupply warships coming to and from the front. Possessing enough docking facilities to host two fleets simultaneously, it can enact resupply, and repair functions. Because of its history as a titanium mine, it can be directly mined, then processed, and manufactured into armour plates. It also possesses manufacturing facilities to build weapons, armour, aircraft, and ammunition, processing the necessary materials to create ammunition for warships. It can also house substantial troop numbers, acting as a shore base for tired crews, garrison for military forces, and command centre.

Lastly, it possesses surprising amounts of armour and weaponry, with external cannons, missile batteries, energy weapons, and gravitational plates, and internal hangers.
