The ORS-class heavy cruiser[1] is a capital warship classification within the Covenant Navy.


Boasting sophisticated stealth technology, an energy projector and plasma turrets, the ORS is more powerful than most cruisers used by the Covenant.[2] Using the 3-letter code used to classify Covenant ships, "O" ("Ordained") indicates that the cruiser has been improved with Forerunner technology, specifically, a weapons core. The "R" ("Reverence") indicates that the cruiser is capable of conducting reconnaissance missions and is capable of excavating Forerunner artifacts. The "S" ("Salvation") indicates that the cruiser is a dedicated warship with a pair of energy projectors.[3] The ORS combines design elements from the CCS-class battlecruiser, SDV-class heavy corvette and the CSO-class supercarrier, and was originally designed to be the CCS' big brother while still paying homage to the CAS-class assault carrier, which is identical to the CSO, providing a visual link between multiple carriers in terms of size.[2]
