Overview[edit | edit source]
Formerly the UNSC's heavy carrier, the Athens-class was slowly phased out of service and now operates as the rebels' heavy carrier warship.
History[edit | edit source]
Almost three kilometers stern to bow these are some of the largest navy ships fielded by the UNSC. It was designed to transport small ships (Longswords and Pelicans) to and from battle. Unlike it's small brother, the Eion-class light carrier , the Athens also carries Pelicans and equipment for the assaulting of planets. Capable of both supporting fleets in space and on the ground with its Longswords these ships were useful in a variety of situations.
Weapons and Tactical Usage[edit | edit source]
In versions before 0.90, the Athens contains 2 fighter/bomber slots. The Athens is also capable of bombing planets, making it slightly more flexible than the Eion-class carrier.
How to acquire[edit | edit source]
If you are playing before version 0.90, the Athens cannot be built. However, it can still be acquired. You can obtain the Athens and integrate it into your fleet by using the Spartan Boarding Party ability present on the Sahara-class Prowler. However, you may also need other ships present as well, to prevent the Rebels from destroying the newly-obtained ships immediately.
As of SotP V 0.90 to build this ship you need to select Fleet Admiral Lord Terrence Hood as your leader and purchase the corresponding upgrade path in the Manufacture research tab.

Canon Reference[edit | edit source]
'Athens' is a non-canon class name. Officially there has only been a "Carrier" named. However this wouldn't suffice for the mod as there are several variants within the Halo universe. "Athens" is used to distinguish this particular class of ship.
