While it was deployed during the pre-war Insurrection, the Sahara-class did not truly come into its element until the Human-Covenant war. ONI techs reverse-engineered captured Covenant technology and implemented extremely effective camouflage measures. After the war, the Office of Naval Intelligence still used at least a handful of these upgraded variants. One even played a minor role in the Second Battle of Requiem in early 2558 by delivering Dr. Halsey to the UNSC Infinity.

- The Sahara-class is the first prowler to be seen or mentioned in any of the Halo games.
- At nearly 1,000 feet (300 m) in length, the Sahara-class is by far the largest prowler used by the Office of Naval Intelligence, not counting the stealth cruiser UNSC Point of No Return, which is technically a prowler.
