UNSC Comparison chart by chakotay02 UNSC Comparison chart by chakotay02
Here's my updated UNSC fleet chart. As you can see it was impossible to get all the names in there so I decided to add another chart with the smaller ships and their names which is also here on my deviantart account.

Planned ships for next and final update: The Pelican, an ONI prowler, the Point of no Return, the Taurus class Frigate and the Cradle refit station.

!!The Keye of Life is an original design of Velo from HHF. Full credit goes to him for designing it.!!

These are amazing models. The artist me loves them. The engineer me hates them though, but that's not your fault.

Hahaha. Thanks. Why does the engineer in you hate them though? It's mostly straight lines. A helluva an easier construction then the Covenant's with all their organic forms.

How do they radiate heat? That's a huge problem in space. Being a cylinder makes it far less efficient at radiating heat because of the lower surface area. That's assuming they use the hull of their ship. But other than that, the armor on those things is rather ridiculous and more than a little useless. The Covenant basically oneshot the Unsc ships when they have a couple meters of armor. Take that armor off and they could not only accelerate faster, but they would use less energy to do it and charge their MACs faster. Honestly, be best designed ships I've ever seen are star destoyers from starwars. Large surface area, not much area to hit them front on and they only have to move a little to get out of the way of enemy fire. UNSC ships have to move quite a bit more to get out of the way. Plus the flat(ish) fronts on the UNSC ships meant that if they're hit, they take the full force of the attack rather than getting a glancing blow or having it spread out over a larger area. Of the UNSC had just made MACs with reactors and engines attached to them instead of making full battle ships, the could have put out at least twice as many ships with the same combat capabilities as the old ships, but needing less resources and less crew.

I assume the covenant choose their ships shapes for asthetics, but they still are better designed. They have much less frontal area to hit with a MAC round and they're much smaller with thinner armor (Benifits of shielding) so they can move faster and make more of them.
