But seriously, for at least on comparisons where they actually fight, let's say Keyes commanding the Pillar of Autumn and Cole commanding the Everest.
Even if we were to ignore the abilities of each individual, this match-up is rather unfair. The Everest
, a Valiant
-class super-heavy cruiser and one of the most advanced ships in the UNSC's wartime fleet against the Pillar of Autumn
, a Halcyon
-class light cruiser, which were notorious for being lacking, to say the least. Granted, the Autumn
did receive upgrades for RED FLAG that her sister ships didn't, but this still puts C-709 at a significant disadvantage.
