Manual Description:

The Banshee is the Covenant's standard ground assault aircraft. It is very fast, extremely maneuverable, and capable of hovering. It has two weapon pods mounted to either side of the fusealge. Both of these pods contain a light plasma cannon and a fuel rod cannon. Though small arms fire may disrupt or disable the pilot, only heavy weapons are capable of inflicting damage or destroying the vehicle.

Banshees are arguably the most fun vehicle in Halo, and the people who argue are wrong. Besides the obvious fact that you can fly, the Banshee is fast, quick on its toes, and armed as heavily as a flying tank. The fuel rod guns are perfect for overturning or destroying small vehicles; wreaking havoc on groups of enemies; or pummeling tanks or other Banshees into submission. Plus, it makes a cool noise and leaves contrails when you turn. What more could you want?
