  • how did ONE ship blowing up manage to destroy a halo installation almost the size of earth? 

    also, if a nova bomb was requested to destroy the high charity (although it is much smaller than a halo)  (while pillar of autmn managed to blow up the first halo by itself) and ONE nova bomb destroyed 3/5 of the elite's fleet at  Joyous Exultation, why couldn't the UNSC just detonated their own ships, since they can do so much damage?

    • Because the main problem is getting what ships they have close enough to do so. Covie ships tend to deal with them without too much difficulty.

      Also, the destruction of the Pillar of Autumn's engine core (which was not the same one on standard UNSC ships) didn't vaporize the entire ring, it only put a big stress fracture in it, which then immediately failed and the ring proceeded to tear itself apart.

      Exactly. You should pay attention to Cortana more often

      Remember Mr.Xbox man,

      1. 1-It didnt blow Halo to pieces it blow it into chunks which rendered it useless
      1. 2- I think the fusion reactor in the ship made a chain reaction on Halo which made it not only blow up that part but made that shockwave all over the ring. The part of the ring that the Pillar of Autumn was on blew up and was thrown into the other part of the the ring which blew up and tore the other part to pieces if my memory is correct

      Yes, but how did it create the shockwave?

    • The Pillar of Autumn just happens to produce an explosion that strong(Its Halo so why not) from the fusion reactor

    • By exploding.

    • The UNSC use nuclear fusion reactors to serve as engines for their ships, so if the engines of the Pillar Of Autumn overloaded and blew up, the resulting nuclear explosion would've ruptured the Ring's "frame" which made it break into pieces, rendering it useless to the Covenant's Great Journey.

      why did you bump this?

      also, i mean that a halo ring is far larger than the high charity (the halo has the circumference of earth), and a nova bomb was requested to destroy the high charity (though denied) This led me too think that a single ship's explosion was as devastating as a nova bomb, and led me to be confused.

      However, the question has been answered by the post below the OP. (Although the halo being more fragile when it was made of forerunner tech seems quite strange)

    • First off, Halo is never stated to have the circumference of Earth, so that's made up. Secondly, TPoA's fusion reactors, as Cortana said, damaged the rings systems beneath it, causing MORE damage. It's the same in property as it is choosing where to crash-land your massive interstellar ship, location location location.
