Spirits are angular, tuning fork/"U" shaped spacecraft with two parallel personnel bays along the exterior of each "prong". They are known to be used to transport Elites, Jackals, and Grunts,(it is unknown if it can ferry Hunters, due to their large size) and have been known to ferry Covenant vehicles within the blue colored energy field between their prongs, usually Ghosts and Wraiths, or other small objects such as supply canisters. Around the time of the First Battle of Earth.  It is speculated that the Spirit is not designed for combat drops, but is instead a Cargo transport, though it is armed with a light plasma cannon. The lack of effective offensive or defensive weaponry coupled with the small troop carrying capacity of the Spirit tends to support this. Since the Fleet stationed above Halo was originally a research operation, this use of non combat specific transportation would be understandable. During the events of the Battle of Installation 04 Spirits might have been placed into combat roles by sheer necessity. The Spirits were the dropships the UNSC encountered on the first Halo and hated them for their ability to drop Covenant troops in places to assault the UNSC forces and to give them air cover.
