UNSC Infinity Vs. UNSC Forward Unto Dawn by Fantasy34 UNSC Infinity Vs. UNSC Forward Unto Dawn by Fantasy34
UNSC INFINITY
CLASS: Infinity
REGISTRY: INF-101
SUBLIGHT CONFIGURATION: XR2 Boglin Fields: S81/X-DFR (Deuterium Fusion Reactor)
TRANSLIGHT CONFIGURATION: Mark X Macedon/Z-PROTOTYPE #78720HDS (Remote Carriage)
PRIMARY ARMAMENT: CR-08, Series-8 MAC (4)
SECONDARY ARMAMENT: M42 Archer (350 pods x 24 missiles)
TERTIARY ARMAMENT: M75 Rapier (250 pods x 30 missiles)
QUATERNARY ARMAMENT: M96 Howler (500 pods x 20 missiles)
QUINARY ARMAMENT: M965 Fortress 70mm Point Defense Network (830 guns)

A warship unparalleled in human innovation, UNSC Infinity is easily the largest and most powerful vessel ever employed by Earth. Although it was originally designed to contend with the Covenant, the war’s end recommissioned Infinity for peaceful exploration and research – until it discovered the Forerunner world of Requiem and was mercilessly pulled into the maw of the planet. Now, the fate of Infinity and its crew is inexorably tied to that of the Master Chief, as the ending of a 100,000-year story finally takes shape.


UNSC FORWARD UNTO DAWN
CLASS: Charon (Light Frigate)
REGISTRY: FFG-201
SUBLIGHT CONFIGURATION: Naoto Technologies: V4/L-DFR (Deuterium Fusion Reactor)
TRANSLIGHT CONFIGURATION: Series IV CODEN/SFTE – Main
PRIMARY ARMAMENT: Mark II, Light Coil – 83B6R3/MAC (Magnetic Accelerator Cannon)
SECONDARY ARMAMENT: M58 Archer Missile Delivery System (50 pods)
TERTIARY ARMAMENT: M870 Rampart 50mm Point Defense Guns (4 guns)
QUATERNARY ARMAMENT: M4093 Hyperion Nuclear Delivery System (3 silos)

Classical light frigate design, the UNSC Forward Unto Dawn is most renowned for its service on the frontlines in defense of Earth and its pursuit of Covenant forces through the Forerunner portal at Voi. There, the Dawn fought alongside a renegade Sangheili fleet and defeated the Covenant, ultimately bringing an end to the war. Unfortunately, upon its return to Earth, the ship was rent in two while passing through a collapsing slipspace portal, sending the fore of the vessel back to Earth, while the aft section, containing the Master Chief and Cortana, absently floated in uncharted space for years.

I honestly don't know why the Forward onto Dawn, and it's entire ship class, was redesigned. I'm not against there being more variety in human frigate design, that just makes it easier to identify a ship's class.

What I mean is that the FOD and the Charon class in general was pretty much the most noticeable human frigate. The ship's design chancing between 3 and 4 just messes with design continuity. I could understand redesigning the interior of the ship... or rather designing it since we only see the interior of frigates in a few cut scenes to make it a more effective play space; nut they ended up making a place space that was later then the supposed size of the frigate's redesign. not cool.

Granted Halo 2, 3, and Reach all provided different frigate classes. So we had the Stalwart Class of 2 (In Amber Clad), Charon Class in 3 (Forward onto Dawn), and the Paris Class of Reach (Grafton, Saratoga, and Savannah). All of those ships where pretty similar in design, and note worthy in usage throughout the various games' cutscenes. Hell, the ships are generally so similar looking that in Halo ODST the
cameo of the Stalwart class In Amber Clad is portrayed with the Charon
class of Halo 3.

If you look closely you can see the cruisers shields fail after being ram. Either way that was a multi megaton impact.

I love how they make this huge ship that's suppose to be the best thing humans have ever built, deep space ship. And almost instantly gets stranded on a remote planet right where master chief is.
I'm think lazy writing at this point, but I guess I'll have to play the game first and see
