UNSC carriers vary drastically in size. The Punic-class was three kilometers long, nearly the length of a Covenant Reverence-class cruiser. While the Poseidon-class was only a mere 719m in comparison.
UNSC carriers are armed with a single Magnetic Accelerator Cannon, 300 Archer missiles, and two Fusion rockets. They carry large numbers of Longsword-class interceptors, as well as numerous Pelican-class dropships, to fit their role as carriers. They also transport contingents of Marines and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers and likely transport vehicles for the UNSC ground forces.
