The wreckage of the FUD

OP EdgeHedgehog

When Requiem collided with its sun,everything on it was destroyed,includimg the remains of the Forward Unto Dawn.

But did the UNSC investigate the crashsite prior to its destruction and did they attempt to salvage weapons and equipment as well as any still existing data logs?
Probably pretty low on the priority list. Cortana most likely pulled all the logged data before she and Chief left the ship permanently at the start of Halo 4 and then uploaded it when she was plugged into Infinity later on in the campaign.

At best you're probably looking at a survey of the crash site after the UNSC returns to Requiem and a light sweep with a small ground team, at worst you're looking at just a long distance sensor sweep and calling it good.

Wasn't really much there worth salvaging except maybe some vehicles and weapons, but Infinity can self-produce equipment as needed so

Yeah, nothing more than an ammo sweep crew at best just to keep whatever was there out of Covenant hands. But most likely it was just ignored.

Yeah I was gonna say that if anything, the Infinity would have deployed Spartans or ODSTs or an engineering team to demo the site. Asset denial is a common military practice with broken down vehicles in the field that can't be repaired or returned to base. On a smaller scale, the US Military will sometimes blow up its own hardware if they can't repair it or drag it back to base either. Or at the very least, render it inoperable to the point of uselessness.
