UNSC PROWLER: APOLLO by D4RKST0RM99 UNSC PROWLER: APOLLO by D4RKST0RM99
A Halo art request for a friend- hal0fanboy311[link]
He came up with the concept and general feel of the design, I fleshed out the details.
Image Details-
A visualization of hal0fanboy311's upcoming Halo fanfic- "SPARTAN: ORION TEAM"
The image displays a moment from the story were upon arriving at its destination the Prowler's pelican is launched to the planets surface with its single Spartan occupant
Ship Details-
Constructed in 2527 the Apollo is launched from its construction yard in secret, this particular prowler class ship was created for ONI's need to be able to send troops and operatives for deep-space recon and high profile missions. Few are aware of its existence even to most officers in the UNSC High Command. The ship is maintained by a smart AI named Leo and has all standard prowler weaponry installed. The ship’s experimental stealth capabilities are the test bed for later prowler designs and carries a standard pelican for transport to planet-side ops. It is rumored to have been issued to Spartan 311 roughly two years after the Spartans were issued their mark IV MJOLNIR armor at a time when involved with ONI recon. The ship was sent to the edge of UNSC controlled space supposedly to the outer colony Victoria with its single commanding Spartan (311) on-board and a single smart AI. There has been no sign of the vessel at its last known coordinates as is currently 3 weeks past its scheduled check-in.

I recently watched Halo Legends and I was wondering how the UNSC got such effective cloaking technology for its vessels. From what I understand we barely had anything close to active camo for the SPI Spartan III armor. Does this prowler have it too?

Thats a very good question, the answer may be in my friends fanfic [link] I started the design with the original characteristics in mind (Angular design, engine baffles, radar absorbent hull, matte black color)but unclear what they actually are for the story this is set, also the ship in legends according to Frank O'Connor isn't an actual prowler.
So the details of this ship may change over time, to suit the story's/writer's needs.
U could also ask the writer himself:D(link enclosed).

there are similarities in the design principals, guess if it isn't broke dont fix it:D
one major difference would be the size and their side profile.

One other thing, I clicked on the link to your friends profile, yet DA couldn't find it. Does the profile he was on no longer exist or is he in another one?

You really are amazing DarkStorm99 :D

Well since you put it that way I feel a little better, and really huh I think I did that same thing you did. ^^;

Thank you very much. Your awsome! :D

So pretty much much what I had in mind for the poster was the main character Axel-118 in the middle of the it posing kind of like this Spartan [link] with his A.I Corona behind him (this may sound weird) like she's flying with her back turned to him and her eyes closed with a peaceful look on her face. Then I guess for the rest of the poster a few scenes from the story/machinima, Hmm maybe for the rest I'll let you put your personal touch to it. What do think?

Oh I also forget if you need any refs of what the characters look like here's a link to my gallery and to the characters.

(Sorry if Corona pic isn't good, I only have three pics up of her ^^;)
