Banshee

The Type-26 Ground Support Aircraft, more commonly identified as the Banshee, is an atmospheric vehicle that is typically used for reconnaissance, ground support, and ground attack missions. It is lightly armored and, while not particularly vulnerable to small arms, can be brought down by concentrated fire from infantry.

The Banshee is a versatile personal aerial assault craft in the Covenant's vehicular arsenal, piloted either by a Jiralhanae or a Sangheili. In most designs, the cowling of the craft are purple in color and act as an outer 'shell'. It is equipped with two wings which terminate in a propulsion jet and an anti-gravity pod, leaving behind a signature vaporous exhaust trail while flying. The craft is capable of achieving velocity over 100 kilometres per hour (62 mph). and reaching an altitude of 100 - 300 meters. In addition to its versatile design, the Banshee is capable of performing complex maneuvers, such as aileron rolls and flips.

The banshee is best used for qiick hit-and-run tactics, whether alone or in small groups, so that it may clear an area of UNSC forces for the covenant infantry to make their mark. Ground vehicles can also be used for such tactics, but as commanded by generally more determined forces, they are within contact of destruction. The banshee, however, being an arial vehicle, is far more versatile and can be a true nightmare for marines and spartans.


Vampire

Shielding None

Armament ■Heavy Needler
■Plasma Cannons (2)
■Stasis Cannon

Crew ■1 Pilot
■1 Co-Pilot
(Speculated)

The Vampire is a Covenant aircraft primarily designed for engaging enemy air units and could be the closest Covenant unit to be equivalent to the UNSC Hawk. It is armed with a heavy needler turret which it fires at an extremely fast rate. When upgraded, it can drain energy from hostile aircraft using a stasis field, making them crash to the ground, whilst simultaneously regenerating itself. Also, once it has been researched, it can make drained aircraft explode with the stasis bomb, causing large area of effect damage. It consists of a V-shaped hull, with a cockpit/weapon attached to the rear, similar to the Spirit dropship. In crude terms, it looks like a Covenant plasma rifle on its side with a needler attached to the rear. Though lacking artificial gravity generators, it can develop a stasis field between the booms. It can host up to two pilots, whose cockpits are placed on its wings. Its is much larger than a Banshee. The 'eye' shape on the front appears to have an upside-down Marathon symbol upon it. An excellent anti-air unit, the Vampire boasts high firepower against aircraft, but it is not as adept at defeating ground units, limiting its tactical ground support usefulness. It is not as fast as the Banshee, but it is considerably more resistant to damage. Due to its heavy needler turret and wing-mounted plasma cannons, it is able to engage multiple targets at the same time. Its turret can turn and keep shooting at flanking enemy aircraft, making them ideal for hit-and-run attacks against enemy aircraft. It is extremely effective against Hornets, Hawks and Vultures. However it can easily be shot down by Wolverines or by Marines' rocket launchers. It is also capable of being hijacked by Spartans. It is very useful as an escort, as it can clear the skies of any incoming hostile aircraft, but may need an escort of its own to protect it from enemy ground-based anti-air units.

Ok, that's fine with me. Makes it easier to view all info on all vehicles in one area, instead of hopping around from one to another.

Well it's assault aircraft I believe. I think that the Spirits and such would be more. I think dropships would be more fitting being put with Covenant spacecraft, if you know what I mean.

OK, I'll add the Spirit and the Phantom sometime when I can. Probably today.
