The EV-44 Support VTOL, also known as the Nightingale, is a UNSC non-combative support aircraft.[2]

Class HistoryEdit

Following the UNSC Spirit of Fire's arrival at Installation 00, the EV-44 design was integrated into the ship's factories.[1]


The Nightingale uses a complement of small, drone-like devices known as Restoration Drones to help repair allied units. Unlike most UNSC aircraft, the Nightingale has no offensive capabilities at all, lacking even a main autocannon, but to counter that, it has various measures to survive harrowing battles, such as smokescreen deployment and deployable jammers that camouflage nearby units.[2]
