Summary

Armed with two high-power plasma cannons, Shrike turrets are deadly point-defense systems encountered at important Covenant sites. In contravention of traditional Covenant practice, these weapons are fully automated, driven by semi-feral associated intelligences. Though capable of communication, these long-abandoned constructs are unintelligible to modern Sangheili, and must be carefully monitored and locked down before activation due to their incomprehension of contemporary IFF beacons and codeword usage by the Swords of Sanghelios and Covenant. Nevertheless, the combination of firepower and preternatural reaction times of the Shrike made it indispensable in the Elites’ bloody civil war, overcoming any initial opposition to the usage of thinking war machines.
