The Sahara-class heavy prowler
is a class of stealth vessel
in the UNSC Navy
.Like most prowlers, the Sahara
-class is equipped with stealth systems that mask the ship from both visual and sensor detection. These systems include an active camouflage
, leaving the prowler nearly invisible to the naked eye.
The ship has a ventral launch bay fitted with hook systems used to deploy EVA
Since prowlers usually avoid combat, besides active combat monitoring and recording, the armaments and weapon systems on a Sahara
-class prowler is limited. They are armed with several XEV9-Matos Nonlinear Pulse Cannons
, allowing the prowlers to protect themselves if they are attacked. Sahara
-class prowlers are usually equipped with at least one M947 Shiva Nuclear Delivery System
. The main armament of the prowler is its M441 Hornet Remote Explosive System
. With the mines, the prowlers lay out minefields in space for enemy ships to unknowingly enter.
