Formerly the UNSC's heavy carrier, the Athens-class was slowly phased out of service and now operates as the rebels' heavy carrier warship.
Almost three kilometers stern to bow these are some of the largest navy ships fielded by the UNSC. It was designed to transport small ships (Longswords and Pelicans) to and from battle. Unlike it's small brother, the Eion-class light carrier , the Athens also carries Pelicans and equipment for the assaulting of planets. Capable of both supporting fleets in space and on the ground with its Longswords these ships were useful in a variety of situations.

How to acquireEdit
To acquire this ship you need the military research but since the latest Sins of The Prophet was released the ship became obsolete and was replaced with the Eion-class light carrier.
'Athens' is a non-canon class name. Officially there has only been a "Carrier" named. However this wouldn't suffice for the mod as there are several variants within the Halo universe. "Athens" is used to distinguish this particular class of ship.
