The 'Eion' combines heavy armor with respectable hull strength with a large hanger array to support multiple strike fighter squadrons. Being a dedicated carrier platform, its main weapons are mainly for defense against lightly armored vessels.


 

OverviewEdit

This vessel is utilized by any UNSC admiral wishing to deploy strike craft. Replacing the Athens-class Carrier in the UNSC's roster, it is more affordable and has stronger weaponry despite being smaller and having less Longsword squadrons.

HistoryEdit

The Eion-class light carrier is designed to transport smaller spacecraft to and from battle, i.e. Longswords. The Eion has limited weaponry, Archer Missiles, and a MAC. Being fairly well armed, Eions do not necessarily need escorts, but should always be deployed with a contingent of frigates for support. They are rarely used for front-line engagements and instead support embattled fleets with squadrons of Longswords from afar.

Eion Carriers replaced the Athens-class Carrier as the UNSC's mainline carrier-cruiser because they are much cheaper and quicker to produce than the Athens, as well as housing stronger weapon systems.

Weapons and Tactical UsageEdit

While equipped with a MAC and various other weapons its strength lies within its strike craft. One should not have these on the frontline. Keep them in the very back of the fleet in attempts to protect them.
