The UNSC frigate Darkest Before Dawn was once the UNSC frigate Hammer Arm. it was designated as FFG-044. after the battle for Jericho VII, it underwent massive renovations which included the addition of a two-barreled MAC cannon and an ablative coating of black stealth armor. it was repurposed for the launching of ODST SOEIVs for planetary insertions, but also played a big part in the 2nd battle for Earth, launching several squads of ODSTs to attack the covenant carrier above new mombasa. In fact, Captain Dare herself had served on the Darkest Before Dawn before her launch into New Mombasa. The Darkest Before Dawn still remains in service as one of the finest UNSC ships ever made.
EDIT: In 2553, This ship was listed as MIA after suspected counterattack from Insurrectionists while on patrol around Reach.
About this creation
Yay, I had enough black pieces to make this in SNOT! credit goes to perry the halo addict for this suggestion.
Best pic of them all! I LOVE this side profile.
BLAM, BLAM! owned by a double barreled MAC Cannon!
Bridge pic. You can see the number 44 on the side. Before you ask, no i did not decal these pieces. These came in actual Lego sets.
close bridge pic. you can see the point defense cannons and the archer missile pods aka binoculars. (laughs)
back and engines. nothing too fancy.
i give full credit to perry the halo addict for this idea. i added the ODST drop tubes that the SOEIVs shoot out from on the bottom.
check out perry's steel dragon, its SWEET

Wow!, i like this shape, and you made it studless, cool. It is more 'curved' now, your previous was blocky and it's all one color now too! You've wrote a good background story about it altrough it's a Covenant Assault Carrier who attacked New Mombasa, not a Cruiser, oh and thanks for the credit. simply worthing a 5/5.
