The Type-51 Individual Breaching Carapace is a variation of the single occupant orbital entry vehicle used by the Covenant remnants.


Developed by Lodam Armory, the Type-51 IBC is an orbital insertion vehicle. Of the three drop pod types used by the Covenant remnants, including the Type-53 Squad Breaching Carapace and the Type-54 Mass Deployment Carapace, it is the smallest and is only capable of transporting a single soldier. It is an updated version of previous drop pod designs used by the Covenant. It can carry a single occupant and is similar in size compared to the previous drop pod used by the Covenant empire, but is also more elongated and sleek in design. It is used to insert a single Sangheili onto the battlefield.
