I have a question, will you add the new model of the Charon Class Frigate from Halo 4 as a new ship? Or, will you just ignore the ship completely?

how long was it because anywhere under 10km and it wasn't even "cruiser" class to the forerunners... they're smallest ships were about 1km long during the forerunner-human war... I guess that may have changed as there are smaller ships but hey there we go

If you mean the Mantle's approach, it is supposed to be a little over 371km tall.

Obviousley it'll be smaller in game for obvious reasons.

I'm sorry 371km tall.

That does not make sense considering that the forerunners LARGEST military ship is 100KM at it's biggest point.

To be honest I prefer what this site has (https://forums.halowaypoint.com/yaf_postsm2157373_posts.aspx) said it makes sense.

I prefer those dimensions as well, but the 371km tall thing was out of the halo 4 visual guide book.

At which point it is open to interpretation.

Not just that doesn't the visual guide use concept art as well. That would mean that the concept could have been 371KM but they Changed it in the final version.

TheDidact Oct 11 2013, 9:17pm replied:

idk I don't have it just yet, but halopedia states it's 371km so whatever, it's probably a **** up tbh considering pretty much anyone can edit the page. But if it does say that in the visual guide (halo 4 one) then we should be inclined to believe that 343 are idiotic enough to make such a ridiculously over sized ship, just as they were idiotic enough to retcon FUD and the marines.

spartan-G257 Oct 12 2013, 11:39am replied:

looking at it it could have been a **** up... if you look at the the post the guy does a very accurate, but still rough method of determining the height.
Which could mean he was off a kilometer or two so it could be 71KM tall instead of 72KM tall which means it could very well be a typo in the halopedia

well prometheans are supposed to be immune to flood, and this is Halo 4 timeline were talking about here.

unless the flood had a billion combat forms i dont see how they could just casually jack this ship in the middle of a battle.

well the forerunners themselves were able to be infected, Including the Didact and all the prometheans. The promethean knights, crawlers and watchers aren't capable of being infected biologically but I am not sure what the gravemind's logic plague would have done to them.

Description

The Didact's impressive flagship, the Mantle's Approach, is an intimidating warship by any military's standards. Used primarily to transport Prometheans across the galaxy, it is more than a match for even the UNSC Infinity, engaging in several battles with it as seen in Halo 4. It is also arguably the largest ship to appear in a canon Halo reference.

Credits go to Didact, of Halo Homefront.
