The UNSC corvette[2][3] is a Light Capital Warship classification in the UNSC Navy.[4][5] Known sub-classes of the corvette include the Mako-class corvette,[6] the Fast-attack corvette,[7] and the UNSC prowler stealth corvette.


The Corvettes are the smallest class of warship in the UNSC Navy, and do not carry any fighters. Fast-attack corvettes are known to have a modest hangar bay with room for only one SKT-13 Shuttlecraft, basically a larger version of the Bumblebee Lifeboat, used to ferry UNSC material and personnel to and from various locations or ships.[8] The corvettes are also known as being one of the fastest ships in the UNSC Navy.[9] Like most other Slipspace-capable UNSC ships, corvettes possess Cryo-bays.[7]

Operational ServiceEdit

UNSC corvettes have been in use during both the Insurrection and the Human-Covenant war. Several Mako-class corvettes were used by the Eridanus Rebels as part of their improvised fleet. The UNSC used corvettes in multiple battles of the Human-Covenant War, including the Battle of Reach[5] and the Battle of Earth.[2]
