The Type-26 Assault Gun Carriage,[2] more commonly identified as the Wraith by the Allies, is the Covenant's main heavy assault craft for ground engagements. The Type-26 Assault Gun Carriage is the primary armored fighting vehicle used by the Covenant.[4] The Covenant deploy the Wraith as a first-strike ground assault vehicle in tactical ground engagements, using it as a weapons platform to bring down structures[5] in the way of ground forces attempting to advance in an area, as well as to destroy enemy armor posing a threat to their own infantry. In addition, the Wraith is used to break the ranks of enemy infantry by both physical and psychological force.
