A massive capital carrier that gives relief to any UNSC commander, the Epoch-class formed the cores of battle groups during the Insurrection and beginning years of the Covenant War. Epochs are renowned for their impressive durability and large inventory of fighters.


 

« Epoch: large, and in charge! »

The Epoch-class heavy carrier is a heavy support ship in service to the United Nations Space Command. It excels as a flagship, coordinating the fleet and deploying strike craft.

Overview[edit | edit source]

« The UNSC's Epoch-class Heavy Carrier is a capital ship well known throughout the fleet as capable of withstanding considerable punishment. She wields a light MAC, but plenty of missiles and point defense weaponry. With her thick armor, the Epoch will continue to provide combat support and waves of strikecraft throughout the duration of your battles. »

History[edit | edit source]

As the Human-Covenant War dragged on, it became clear that previous vessels were under-gunned when compared to the fierce ships fielded by the Covenant Empire. When the Athens-class Carrier was retired from service, it left a large hole in the UNSC's carrier arsenal, and it was filled with the Epoch-class Heavy Carrier.

At 2563 meters, the Epoch is the third largest warship in the UNSC's roster, behind the venerable Punic-class supercarrier and Infinity-class supercarrier herself.

Weapons and Tactical Usage[edit | edit source]

Mounting a light but rapid-fire Magnetic Accelerator Cannon, rows of Archer Missile Pods, and a set of bow-mounted Breakwater heavy naval coilgun batteries, the Epoch can pack a punch against Innie ships and even smaller Covenant vessels, but was not intended to deal much damage on its own in ship-to-ship combat with larger enemy capital ships. Instead, its sizable fighter capacity and thick armor were intended to allow it to function as a battlegroup leader, soaking up damage while it replenished the battlegroup's fighter swarms. Do not rely completely on her armor, however, her significant cost means she is anything but a throwaway vessel.
