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).
