The Dropship 79 Heavy-Troop Carrier, abbreviated D79H-TC and more commonly known as the Pelican, is an extremely versatile aircraft capable of carrying troops, cargo, or vehicles, and sporting a heavy arsenal of weapons. This model of the Pelican has two nose-mounted machine guns operable by the pilot. The G79H-TC/MA Pelican is the gunship variant.

TriviaEdit

  • Unlike the earlier D77 models, the cockpit opens to allow the pilot inside.
  • Unlike previous Pelicans, the downward thrusters are no longer on the nacelles and are instead on the main body.
  • Unlike other Pelican models, the D79 supports acceleration thrusters.
  • The variant flown in the Halo 4 level Shutdown is the G79H-TC/MA Pelican gunship.
  • This is the first known Pelican model officially to have a hologram projector in the cargo bay. The Tart-cart was first integrated with one on request.
  • When landing, the Pelican's wings will angle down from a horizontal angle to a vertical one in order to direct the thrust downward, much like modern VTOL aircrafts.
