The ''Habakkuk'' class Seaborne Fortress is a unique ship in the Allied arsenal. Although it rivals the Empire's floating fortresses in size, it is relatively cheap to manufacture by comparison, with each ship costing around the same as two ''Von Esling'' class Aircraft Carriers. The low cost of the ''Habakkuk'' is due to the fact that it is literally just a giant iceberg. The ''Habakkuk'' is made of 95% pykrete, a strong and durable material made of frozen H<sub>2</sub>O, sawdust and some other ingredients, which makes the ''Habakkuk'' nigh indestructible. The ''Habakkuk'' is propelled by 3 ''Ironside'' class hulls embedded in it during construction, and is capable of cruising at a steady 3 knots. During trips that take it far south, the ''Habakkuk'' also has cryo generators that help the ship to keep cool in the heat.

The ''Habakkuk'' serves a unique role in the Allied Navy. They act as giant floating islands in military operations, enabling the Allies to construct airbases and naval yards in the middle of the ocean, giving the Allies the edge in naval engagements. The Allies also use them to mount amphibious assaults, stationing entire brigades on ''Habakkuks'' prior to launching them into the sea and towards the beaches. They also used to serve as air superiority projection platforms in troublesome areas such as Vietnam and China. It is unlikely that the ''Habakkuk'' will be replaced soon, as it continues to play an important role in the Allied arsenal, and will likely remain in service until someone finds a way to create an island out of nowhere in the middle of the ocean.
