The Sahara-class heavy prowler was a class of prowler used by the Office of Naval Intelligence during the Human-Covenant war and Post-war era.

Class HistoryEdit

Human-Covenant warEdit

In 2526, prowler squadrons in Task Force Yama were led by Sahara-class ships.[3]

The UNSC Dusk would pursue the UNSC In Amber Clad in October 2552.[4] It would later redeploy to Onyx before escaping to warn of the destruction of the construct-world.[5]


The UNSC Silent Joe operated with Blue Team and Veta Lopis in December 2553.[6] The UNSC Port Stanley was given to Serin Osman to maintain instability among the Sangheili.[7]

The UNSC Aladdin played a minor role in the Second Battle of Requiem in early 2558 by delivering Dr. Halsey to the UNSC Infinity.[2]



At nearly 1,000 feet (300 m) in length, the Sahara-class is by far the largest known prowler used by the Office of Naval Intelligence, not counting the stealth cruiser UNSC Point of No Return, which is technically a prowler.


The Sahara-class's hull was an ablative composite armor.[1]


The Sahara-class carries the following armament:



The Sahara-class carried at least one squad of Marines.[2]
