The end-all capital ship of the UNSC, the Thermopylae-class holds everything a UNSC fleet might need and were used by many high ranking admirals as a command ship.
Technically a subclass of Carrier, the much larger Supercarrier can hold a multitude of roles and is one of only a few classes that can effectively combat Covenant ships in direct battle. The largest ship officially built by traditional means for the UNSC these ships were built with all the advancements the UNSC had to offer at the time, with no expenses spared. The ship could hold a multitude of roles including fleet coordination and command, direct offense and defense, troop transport or even fleet support and were often used as flagships of high ranking admirals.
However due to its size and cost Supercarriers weren't as widely constructed and deployed as other classes of ships and so were rarely seen in combat.
Weapons and Tactical Usage
This vessel is equipped with an upgraded Double MAC as well as potent compliment of Archer missiles and point defense guns. While a powerful ship able to take absurd amounts of damage, it is ill-advised to treat this vessel as a tank. The Thermopylae's main role is to provide fleet buffs with its abilities, one of note being Fleet Command. More than one of these vessels in a fleet is unnecessary.
- Removed the Thermopylae and replaced it with the Punic-class. Its model is still used as the flagship in 'Flagship Mode'.
- 'Thermopylae' is a non-canon class name. Originally, it is only named 'Super Carrier' but this is silly as there are several assumed variants. 'Thermopylae' is used to distinguish this ship.
