The Covenant Trade Ship.



Plain and simple a trade vessel it also fits the same profile as a Cargo Ship which unlike the Trade Ship works between refineries.


Trade Ships are generally commanded by the Kig'yar who feel at home on these vessels however the trips often don't go as long as they'd like given that the Covenant slipspace technology is so powerful, most trips don't take more than a day.

It's common for these ships to also be raided by the Kig'yar, these pirates are considered heretics by the Covenant who actively hunt down these ships. The vessels are generally unarmed so pirating is a very real problem in the Covenant.

Weapons and Tactical UsageEdit

Although there is no tactical usage for the Trade and Cargo Ship outside of the obvious economic advantage there is need to protect these ships. When a Trade or Cargo Ship is destroyed the controlling player loses income and the aggressor gains the income that the controlling player lost.
