The Covenant Battleship is a heavy capital warship classification within the Covenant Navy. This warship is approximately two kilometers long, has five bulbous sections and bristles with a dozen Energy Projectors - enough weapons and firepower to decimate any UNSC Fleet from long range. It is larger than most Covenant warships, even surpassing the keel length of the CCS-class battlecruiser, but itself is dwarfed by the Covenant Assault Carrier.
A battleship was encountered by the CMA Heracles, CMA Vostok, and CMA Arabia as well as the forces under Vice Admiral Preston Cole in the Second Battle of Harvest. It single handedly destroyed thirteen ships in Cole's fleet before being destroyed by concentrated fire.
The Battleship is made up of five primary bulbous sections and appears as a light shade of purple. It is one of the largest ships in the Covenant fleet. It's extremely well-armed and boasts three energy projectors near the fore of the ship and four to six on its stern. Various pulse laser turrets and plasma turrets litter the hull as well.
Though most of its power is likely used up by the large number of energy projectors it uses in battle, the ship still can project a shield strong enough to protect it from multiple nuclear missiles and MAC rounds. However, the shield and hull will buckle under concentrated fire as shown when the 27 ships left in Cole's fleet were able to destroy one when all the ships fired a single concentrated barrage.
