The UNSC Iowa nicknammed "The Big Stick" is a Orion-Class Battleship during the Insurrection and Human-Covenant War and is considered to be a Capital Ship.

HistoryEdit

Battle of EarthEdit

Because of severe damages during the Battle of Sigma Octanus IV, the UNSC Iowa could not partake in the Fall of Reach, instead being repaired in time for the Battle of Earth.

The Iowa was tasked with defending orbital defense systems, sending teams to board said platforms to assist in fending off the Covenant, and being boarded herself. Grif-L01 and Maria-L02 were involved in fighting...

Liberation of Korhall Edit

Iowa participated in a small fleet to re-colonize the planet. After receiving UNSC emergency coding, the fleet prepared for a surprise attack by Brute forces, culminating in a full retreat back into UNSC space, vowing to return in a transmission over the planet's E-Band. The warship was refitted with nuclear weapons and additional Archer Missile Pods.

The ship destroyed 2 Loyalist frigates and captured a cruiser. After the naval battle, the ship deployed ground forces onto the planet.

TriviaEdit

  • This ship was named after the U.S.S. Iowa, a decorated battleship during the Second World War, currently active as an armed museum ship.
  • Iowa was a state in the United States.
