UNSC Invading Covenant Territory? [SpOps]

In Episode 6 all but one of the locations are located deep within Covenant territory. Obviously we’re going to be revisiting a few of these in the future, if not all of them. But, in order to do that, we would have to be invading.

Perhaps after Infinity is boarded Lasky will decide that he’s fed up with the Covenant and mounts a massive invasion, now that they know where some important locations are.

Are the rest of the Covy ships hiding in Requiem? I can’t think of any other reason why Infinity hasn’t the remaining covy ships and stranded them.

I have always wondered the same thing myself. Should be quick work really. I assume Infinity is not the only UNSC ship in orbit either. The are not so stupid not to have an escort fleet.

Its Infinity and a fleet of (8?) Frigates.

Infinity apparently has some bad feelings about going back inside Requiem, so it ssitting outside one entrance portal.

But you do make a good point, we’ve seen how easily the Covenant Cruisers inside the planet are beat. Palmer called one Frigate in and it demolished a Cruiser heading for Crimson. Spartan Teams disabled another Cruiser. Infinity downs two and sends 3 away in the campaign with its deck guns alone.

Infinity could easily go wipe out all the Covenant inside the planet, or just send a couple Frigates hunting.

There is an Anti Air problem in some areas. But you’ve already seen that its easy to send in a Spartan Team and disable it. The UNSC ships have shields, so it probably wouldn’t be too hard to get in close and take out the AA guns themselves.

Once he knows Infinity is vulnverable, I’d be surprised if they didn’t try to make another major push into Covie territory.

From the screenshots, it looks like Prometheans engage Infinity and then Covenant ships assault it from the outside. Any remaining ships should be hunted immedietly, it’d not only halt the Covenant’s main way of moving around, but will also stop a significant threat to the UNSC there.

So far the Infinity has been shown being escorted by the Frigates she deployed, however she had Halcyon-Class Cruisers escorting her in Earth Orbit. I think they should go to Requiem and offer assistance. I mean what happens if Jul’s Assault Carrier shows up? Can those Frigates stop that thing if the Infinity is vulnerable during the attack?

There are probably way too many Forerunner AA guns for it to handle. Rather than take on every covie ship along with all the Prometheans in their own territory they are weakening them, taken out a couple ships, take out aa guns, take out the Prometheans slip space network ect. Then the UNSC can just bulldoze their way through.

Hopefully the bulldozing comes soon.
And I hope it involves a tank. We haven’t seen many SpOps missions with tanks and large scale battles.

Oh I love me some Scorpion.

There really isn’t any good reason for Infinity not hunting down the ships within requiem. Just find there locations,jump there (if not on the ship itself),destroy it, jump to the next one.

The Frigates alone seem to be more than capable of doing that if the ships don’t have shields.
