Ares missiles were ship-to-ship missiles carried by UNSC capital ships for engaging enemy warships in space combat.[1]

DescriptionEdit

They were utilized in the 25th century, early in the Insurrection before they were replaced by the Archer missile, which remained the standard missile on UNSC warships through the Human-Covenant war.

Unlike its successors, whose pods carry thirty or more missiles, an Ares silo carried only a single missile. Warships historically carried far fewer Ares missiles than Archer missiles. For example, UNSC destroyers in 2494 carried seven Ares missiles total, whereas by 2552, destroyers carried 26 Archer pods of 30 missiles each, for a total of 780 missiles, and oversized missile pods allowing ships to carry even more.
