Image of Destroyer Exists!Edit

There is an image of the fore and aft sections of the UNSC Heracles in the Halo Wars Genesis graphic novel/comic book. I don't have access to a scanner but I will attempt to get one and upload the image asap. Unless someone can do it sooner. The picture of the fore section is where the Heracles is exiting the slipstream and the aft picture is when it's reentering after the Vostok and Arabia were destroyed.

Ships of the LineEdit

Change this section to a list to match the frigate article. Put the template on articles for the individual ships. Isidis 128 06:55, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Where does it say Destroyers have two MAC's?Edit

can some one please tell me were it says it has 2 MAC guns, and were are they i cant evan fina a place for just one of these on the frigate on cairo station. J!MMY8806 14:41, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

It says in Halo: the fall of reach, you can look at thoerys of where MAC canons might be on MAC and its talk page --Climax Viod 18:35, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Fall of Reach page 139:

What those critics forgot that a UNSC Destoyer sported 2 MAC guns, 26 oversized Archer missile pods and 3 nuclear warheads. Only seven meters longer than a frigate. No single ship fighters. Almost as heavy than 2 frigates combined mass. --Will 11:55, 06 January 2007 (UTC)

shouldn't a UNSC destroyer be able to take on a covenant one with 2 MACs? first round takes out the shields (completely or almost) second one cripples the ship, or at least that's what they do in most battles described in the books.(when they do fire)

That's assuming the other ship isn't firing back at it. A Covenant Destroyer can put out far more firepower than its human equivalent, which also lacks the comparable defences. -- Administrator Specops306 - Qur'a 'Morhek 22:15, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Picture is NOT a destroyerEdit

In The Fall of Reach, Captain Keyes' destroyer Iroqois uses both of its MAC's against two Covenant Frigates and a Destroyer. but the image on the the article page is a cruiser, not a destroyer, and is in the wrong place entirely. the destroyers, from their description, seem to be merely heavier-armed friagtes. perhaps a picture of one of them should suffice? —This unsigned comment is made by (talkcontribs) .

The image is a destroyer from a Cairo Station viewport. It must be, b/c it is approx. the same size as the frigates beside it, and they're only 7 meters different...too little to see from the distance that they're streaming by at.

I don't think we should keep this Lego "destroyer" as the pic for this article.
No offense and with all do respect that is a marathon class cruiser. If not marathon possibly another halcyon. Mostly marathon class though. I forgot which one but I think one of the books stated that the UNSC destroyer was very similar to the frigate except that the armor is thicker. In Halo Ghost of Onyx it states that the In Amber Clad was a destroyer. If only I remembered which books and what pages contained the proof.--Halo3Halo3
the pic I have was nearly the identical length as a destroyer, which fits in with the fact that the destroyer is only 7 meters longer. Thaks, H3. Cheers, 49 Proximal Secant[oracle]H3 Monitor 23:09, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
That picture blaitently a Cruiser, its to big and the ship in the opening scene is most likey a cruiser, i believe i know which one's are destroyers but my picture is in bmp ill send it to you Relentless if i have your MSN and we can debate if you want. --Climax Viod 18:41, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

This ImageEdit


Is this what we could be looking for? (sorry, first time writer on pages)Helard 06:37, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

The image to the left appears to be In Amber Clad which is a Frigate not a destroyer -- Esemono 07:59, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Note the In Amber Clad may not be a frigate see frigate Discussion page for more details

ill post a new one

Ship design thinkingEdit

This may help make sense of the confusion around the destroyers so like the thinking behind our modern day warships UNSC ships designed solely based on there function, Frigates have the same function as carriers only a lot smaller but loaded with essential utilities- they are needed for plannet side deployment of troops, supplies and equipement, they can launch a number of fighters but have the bare minimum weapons and defenses and a vast amount of storage space, there design shows this.

Destroyers on the other hand have next to no utilities, theyve been described as a rifle with an engine with a bay large enough for 2 pelicans with the rest of the mass left to the titanium A battle plate and weapon systems, essentialy the smaller equivelant to the battle cruiser, each class is balanced on a scale of these functions. Utility ships on one end to warships on the other ie- frigates to destroyers or carriers through to cruisers to battlecruisers respectivly.

This reasoning is based mostly on common sense, eg if u gave a carrier the same mass of titanium plating of a cruiser it would probably be too heavy for it to move plus the enclosed design would cut down on its utilities so each design has to closely adhere to its function.

So long story short- The UNSC Destroyer isnt a Frigate with extra armor.DARKSTORM99 12:23, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

Even Though Edit

Like I said the frigate is similar in ship, texture, and appearence except that it is 7 meters longer. On close inspection like you said Will the destroyer is alot different when it comes to weaponry.--Halo3Halo3

but it isint just hull texture and weaponry, the frigate design is far too fragile to be a destroyer regardless of armor, its engines hang out on the sides, easy targets and has a large target profile with its storage space and living quarters protuding from either side of the hull leaving it exposed, if it was any way similar it would be the worst destroyer design, the true destroyer design would have a narrow profile with enclosed compartments and a low target profle and no part of its hull geometry would be left exposed or protruding it would be an almost solid length of titanium -A battle plate idealy. not too far from the Babysitter and Heart of Midlothian stories depicted destroyers.DARKSTORM99 12:49, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

a image please!!!Edit

which user is going to put a image of this ships -- User: 2 February 2007

There is no image -- Esemono 07:59, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

well, there is now. it can be found in the Halo Wars: Genesis graphic novel. however, i do not have a method to take a scan of the ship. so can someone do this as it is the first canon appearance?

date used Edit

they have been used since before operation trebuchet. at the beginning of fall of reach, halsey tells keyes that the eridanus rebels had managed to take out 4 destroyers. CaptJim 01:44, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Picture Edit

is that an actual render of a UNSC destroyer? SILENT ONE 20:38, 12 Oct 2008 (UTC)

It's a fan-made version, and has been removed as such. -- Councillor Specops306 - Kora 'Morhek 06:25, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

From Halo: Black Spartan Is it a Destroyer ?

What happened to the novel picture we had a few days ago? If this is confirmed to be a Destroyer, then we should keep it. 01:31, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Read the above. The 888th Avatar (Talk) 11:51, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Ugghh! The capital ships of the Halo universe are sickeningly undeveloped. No lousy pictures!Fire Eater 21:17, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Generic Destroyer ImageEdit

UNSC Destroyer

What about this?

I had an image... of a generic UNSC Destroyer which was undone by someone, so I came here.

Here is the image, shouldn't it be included in the page, because the image of the Heracles exiting Slipspace is too vague?

Your Destroyer = Not from any official canon sources. Grizzlei
The UNSC Destroyer. As seen in Midnight in the Heart of the Midlothian.

Armament Edit

Hi, could someone who knows the weapons on a UNSC Destroyer (e.g. someone who plays the game :P) clean up the page? Cheers. A F K sig 2 A F K When Needed 17:36, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

All the information known about UNSC destroyers is currently listed. the only ships that have appear ingame are cruisers and frigates. Hence the wellspring of information about each. ProphetofTruth 17:40, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for the late response. I mean how some of the information appears in the box, and some at the very bottom of the page. A F K sig 2 A F K When Needed 17:48, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Power Plant Edit

Same problem as the frigate page. It says deuterium fusion, but there's no source. It could be any type of fusion.

RvB Destroyer Images Edit

These two pictures show a UNSC Destroyer from Red vs Blue. The design and appearance of the ship looks exactly the same as a cannon destroyer, but it has a higher graphic quality.

Should these images be allowed to be displayed on the destroyer page?

No, they shouldn't because they're not canon Halo --GodzillaMaster (talk) 20:02, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
