, a UNSC aerial vehicle, also known as the AV-Attack VTOL. It can fly in any direction or hover, and it is equipped with two machine guns
and two tracking missile launchers. Two passengers can sit on the side and offer additional fire or simply be transported. It is not as fast as the Covenant
equivalent, the Banshee
, but it is more maneuverable, more durable, and deadlier. A Plasma Pistol
overcharged shot will cause the Hornet to fall to the ground.
