A Battle Group is a UNSC designation for a force of ships that is smaller than a Fleet. A Battle Group is roughly equivalent to a Covenant Task force in terms of number of ships; however, a Task Force is far superior to a Battle group in terms of sheer firepower and technology.
A Battle Group is usually commanded by an Admiral, though there have been instances of smaller Battle Groups being led by Captains. Each Battle Group is assigned a number, or, when the number is not known, the Battle Group is referred to simply by its flagship. Battle Groups are also created on a temporary basis, with a specific mission or to accomplish a specific task.
Known Battle Groups Edit
- The funding of the SPARTAN-II Program, including their MJOLNIR Armor and training, cost about as much as a Battle Group.
- Battle groups, like their larger counterpart, usually are assigned a Prowler for observation and sabotage.
