During the Human-Covenant war, many Halcyons were refit and rescheduled for service.[3] By the Battle of Sigma Octanus IV, only 20 Marathons were left in service within the UNSC Navy.[9]

Post-war[edit | edit source]

Very few cruisers actually survived the war.[7] The Halcyons and Marathons were either all destroyed or decommissioned, being replaced by the Autumn-class,[5] as well as several other designs.[7]
