SERVICE RECORD

Though similar in hull shape to the smaller (relatively) CAS-class assault carriers such as the Shadow of Intent, the Long Night of Solace is over five times longer, stretching to eighteen miles in length.  Its massive size makes it a nearly invincible enemy of the UNSC, and its deployment during the early stages of the invasion of Reach meant it was the central focus for the planet's defenses before they were entirely overwhelmed.  Though the UNSC, through the actions of Spartan-III Noble Team, successfully destroyed the Long Night of Solace using a sabotaged slipspace drive, the damaged caused by it and its supporting fleet were enough to put the defense forces on their heels, and they were completely obliterated upon the arrival of the second Covenant fleet at Reach.
