HaloReach - PoA

The UNSC Pillar of Autumn maneuvering in atmosphere with atmospheric rocket pods.

Atmospheric rocket pods are a form of UNSC propulsion system used to lift non-atmosphere spacecraft, such as Halcyon-class light cruisers, out of atmosphere and into orbit. The pods are attached to hardpoints on the underside of the vessel; once escape velocity is achieved, they detach and are discarded.[1]

During the Fall of Reach, the UNSC Pillar of Autumn used eight rocket pods to lift off the drydock at the Aszod ship breaking yards and escape the planet.[1]

It is possible that these rocket pods are used to lift any large UNSC ship out of dry dock on a planet's surface.
