HALO SHIP SCALE CHART UNSC,COV by D4RKST0RM99 HALO SHIP SCALE CHART UNSC,COV by D4RKST0RM99
This is my attempt at a scale chart of UNSC and Covenant ships from the Halo universe, most of them shown are to the best of my knowledge how they should look as some in the canon info only the length is given (if any info at all) so some are accurate, some just the length and some are a best guess at length as well as appearance.
I scaled them as best I could though there will be some discrepancies (no need to point out mistakes,lol)
I made this to help as a rough guideline to a future fanfic I'll be working on.

Also for a smaller version without the larger ships-

just the larger ones-

and the color version-


Update 10- My first for 2012, with this version I've updated and removed some of the ships, additions include the UNSC Infinity and other Halo 4 and Glasslands ships, the Tiara as well as reach station Gamma and Damascus station, also added more detail to the aging relic that is the Deep Reverence as the majority of its weapons and defensive systems have been removed when it was decommissioned.

Full details of this chart can be found here-
HALO SCALE CHART UNSC/COVENANT/FORERUNNER:thumb178388170:
The function of this Journal will be to hold the majority of the Halo Scale Chart's details so to reduce the clutter on its main page.

Also for a smaller version without the larger ships-

and the color version-

Some of the listed ships below are yet to be added to the chart if their is enough room, the details for each ship entry are-
SHIP TYPE/CLASS - SHIP NAME - SHIPS FIRST APPEARANCE - SHIP LENGTH.
Entries marked (OC) are my own Original Content.

FORERUNNER
1. BERTHING SHIP - HALO WARS - 16,000M(EST)
2. WARSHIP - HALO WARS - 3,987M(EST)

The Halo fanbase has no shortage of devoted fans, but only a few of the millions can claim to fully understand it's complex canon and universe.

Fewer still are ones skilled enough to create scale charts, dissect quotes made to figure out the energy limit of Plasma weapons or shielding in joules, or craft complex theories for posters to critique and build on (RIP the universe fourm), or craft movie prop level to scale armor and weapons in real life.

This, however, makes us all look like children. Without a doubt the most comprehensive piece of fan material I have ever seen in regards to the halo universe.

My only negative critique (if it is even negative) is that it includes ships we do not have a current canonical visual appearance or accurate dimensions for, and therefore cannot be used in any of the wiki's.

However, even those ships are pictured in an insanely detailed manner that fits the visual style of that craft's creator, to the point where if you didn't know any better, you would think it was official!

To the best of my knowledge there was no 'official' image of the Unyielding Hierophant. Yours certainly aligns faithfully to Nylund's description in First Strike. Having now seen 'Unyielding', the final Terminal video from the Master Chief Collection, I can't help but notice that they took your interpretation wholesale.

You are absolutly correct, had this design for more than 3 years posted for everyone to see so it was quite a shock to see it in an official Halo game, would have been nice if they'd asked first, at least give me the chance to iron out the design flaws.

I had wondered if they'd contacted you prior, rether cheeky of them. Then again they did copy and paste whole sections of halopedia for their Halo encyclopedia. So I guess there was prescedent.

i may have made this comment previously (but I can't go back in the comments to find it since this ipad I'm using won't let me rrrrrhhh!!!!)

but I've always wondered what the scale of a Forerunner Sentinel Constructor ship was in relation to the rest of these ships... they appear to be more than a mile long and two of these are seen in Halo 2.

U mean the one in Halo 3, u see them neer the Ark strip mining a planetoid? I know someof the larger sentinel classes go beyond this scale.

sorry for the late reply... my computer is broke bawwww.

I don't recall seeing Sentinel constructor ships in Halo3 (just the planetoid lolz). Must be that long since I played Halo 3!! Its just a guess the size of the crashed ship in Halo 2, its scale (once you've gone through the ship and out the other side) is quite massive... almost like another Sentinel wall. Do they come in different sizes? There's not much info on em...but would be interesting to get some sort of scale against other ships (Covenant, unsc etc).

The UNSC Infinity is actually equivalent in size to a Covenant Supercarrier. No hate.

D4RKST0RM99 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry to correct you but the Covenant Supercarrier is 27,000m long and according to a halo waypoint bullitin the Infinity is 5,694m [link] (bottom of the page). Going by the scale on this chart and the size of the covenant corvette compare to the Supercarrier before its destruction you can see the vast difference in size, keep in mind the Corvette is more than twice the length of the frigate Forward unto Dawn.
Unless of cource you ment the Covenant 5,346m Assaultcarrier if so youd be spot on :D

DAYUM!!! U rubbed it in too hard. But I thought that since the UNSC Infinity is so huge, that it would compare to an Assault Carrier. My favorite frigate is the UNSC Grafton. What's yours?

The Forward unto Dawn, sliced in half and it still has its uses, fave UNSC ship overall would be the Iroquois for the Keyes loop alone.

Lol, these are the smallest of the group when u consider the 100km Forerunner fortress ships, High charity, the lesser and greater Arks, the Dyson(ONYX) and micro-dyson(REQUIEM) spheres not to mention the 10km and 30km Halo rings, I may consider doing a chart for these in future

Truly a mastery of scaling and depiction, my friend!!!
I especially love how you separated both the UNSC and Covies into two different groups: really helps to tell who's who!!!
BTW, since it'd be dreadfully rude to not ask first, would it be alright with you if I used some of these to make a depiction of my own fleets???

I actually was going to use at least seven supercruisers to act as secondary or tertiary capital ships in my fleet.
Remind me, are they the ships with the "sniper" energy projectors like the one in fall of reach?

Yes, not sure if you are going for realism here but their can’t be many of these ships around, you have to think of the infrastructure that built it, that’s why the UNSC could only build one Infinity, it was assembled over decades using vital resources and funds that could have went towards building an entire fleet, so if you have several of these overpowered ships it would mean the Covenant would have limitless resources, their only limits would be manpower, not to mention the upkeep of every ship- cost of maintenance, repairs, refuel and resupply, not to mention the constant calibrations the powerful weapons would need, to run a fleet that size and power would be inordinately expensive.

Completely understanable.
But since the Covenant had been around pretty much three-housand years before their first encounter with Humanity, they've shown that they've surpassed our own means of spaceworthy vessels by centuries, possibly having even more unknown warships that we aren't fully aware of yet, especially since they mentioned the Covenant Supercarrier (an absolutely awesome warship!!!) in Ghost of Onxy and finally show it in Hal Reach, with its design being NO different that that of the Assault Carrier. And it does kinda make sense that if supplies and such were in short supply for a single fleet, they would have to rely on one or more fleets.
In my Covenant fleet, the Combined Fleet of Strategic Affiliations consists of well over six-hundred warships and support vessels, all assimilated from nearly ten individual fleets during the length of the war. Its flagship, the Declaration of War, is one of the oldest and largest CSO-class Supercarriers commissioned, wielding a highly-modified energy projector weapon called the Necrosis Reaper and is shaded in a light-blue shade acting as its symbol as an individual powerhouse. Beneath it are six Assault Carrier once commanding separate fleets of their own, seven Supercruisers commanded by the fleet's Council of Masters, an entire flotilla of nearly twenty Battleships, several Destroyers, Frigates, Corvettes, and over a third of the fleet made up of Battlecruisers and Light Cruisers. There's also a large quantity of over a hundred Agricultural Support Ships within the fleet as well. All of this, from the Declaration, is under the cole control of Supreme Commander Geddon 'Gunghoee. The fleet's sole mission to be the safeguarding of the borderline between human and Covenant space, should the humans attempt to retaliate on their civilian worlds.
Even though this is all entirely fanfic here, it would make sense for there to be a massive fleet roaming around out there on its own time, doing what it pleases, almost like an individual force from the Covenant.
