"INCOMING CONTACT, UNKNOWN CLASSIFICATION!"
The Sabre Program Launch/Research Range was a UNSC facility on Farkas Lake on the planet Reach. It was used to launch YSS-1000 Sabres. During the Fall of Reach, Noble Team pushed up to the facility to initiate Operation: UPPERCUT. The facility was protected by numerous UNSC Army Troopers and AA Turrets. Despite the defenses, Covenant Elites were able to infiltrate the base and slaughter many of the personnel leaving them and their weapons scattered around the floor.
