A Covenant cruiser is a type of heavy-tonnage Covenant starship within the Covenant Navy. Though it shares a similar name, this ship should not be confused with the Covenant CCS-class battlecruiser.


The Cruiser is larger than the CRS-class light cruiser but is smaller than the Covenant carrier. They are armed with five plasma turrets and laterally-mounted pulse lasers,[2] but lack a compliment of supplementary Seraph starfighters. Like other Covenant ships, the Covenant Cruiser is roughly oblong in shape with touches of a purple and blue color scheme. Although there are four different classes (CRS, CCS, RCS and ORS) they only differ slightly and can be classed within one of the main classes.
