Harvest Marines

The planet Harvest after glassing by the Covenant, c. 2526.




The Harvest Campaign was a five-year campaign to retake the planet Harvest after the Covenant took over the planet and wiped out the colony on Harvest.  The Second Battle of Harvest is considered the initial battle of the campaign, with UNSC Battle Group X-ray destroying the single Covenant super-destroyer at the cost of thirteen UNSC warships.  The campaign culminated with the arrival of the UNSC Spirit of Fire in-system to support the damaged UNSC Prophecy, which had been damaged while repelling a new Covenant fleet.
