Weird, I always thought that the Halcyon was the bigger one...

The marathon was built to replace the halcyon, it also has twin-macs instead of just the one mac that the halcyon has

Looks as though it has four MACs

the halcyon is the smallest ship to receive the cruiser designation is has a single MAC cannon unless its the pillar of autumn that after its refit it had an experimental MAC cannon which could fire 3 times per charge instead of 1

Remember that Mac cannons are internal weapons that require lots of space for the magnets and loading as well as a barrel. They wouldn't be visible as a protrusion on top of the ship. Those would be antennas and such

I was three rounds per charge because they had magnetic recyclers that would recapture the spent energy to fire the next two shots. To quote the book, "the first shot, perhaps the first pair of shots would take their sheilds out, the last round would be the knockout punch"

Perfect scaling. Just as how I imagined the beast of a warship.

Why did you guys decide to scale it up? It's only a few meters longer than a Halcyon.

I didn't come all this way to be second best, slugger. We're aiming to be top dog. All we need to do is somehow beat Dawn of Victory.

Captain: Wow, this is a mighty fine ship we have
admiral: Yes, yes it is

*covenant carrier jumps in and takes a giant turd on the ship*

Captain: What the hell was that?

Communications officer: Getting visual now captain

*Elite troll-face appears on-screen*



Covies for the win! :D Beautiful model bro

Dammit, I just finished my Marathon Model and was all proud of it, then I see this and im like... ****. Well now I got a smoken good reference picture to touch up mine. Extremely impress with the work of your modeler/s, Love the concept ships you create and they all have that UNSC feel and share the same level of Detail. Hats off to all of you, and Ill be purchasing this unknown to me game just for this amazing mod.

It's okay, Annhilater is a different species. So none of us have to compare ourselves to him.

This mod is also the only reason I started playing Sins.
