These are still super-extreme-alpha versions, and haven't been balanced with each other. I will admit, I was struggling with how to implement the MAC Cannons without allowing for Gunnery Team to give them a double shot, but I believe that I have a good idea. I'll rebalance/recost as necessary.

In the interest of usability and organization, may I suggest collating all of your HALO work into a single Expansion for ease of reference? My other general points for your listed ships I'll put here for your convenience for now. First, I don't see why no UNSC ship has forward armament. I've seen the multi-card system for the MACs, and commented the relevant thoughts there, but missile pods should have given these ships at least some forward armament. I suggest a couple black die, mostly on the larger ships. Also, for both Covenant and UNSC ships, especially smaller ones, they seem overcosted at base combat ability. I will admit I have done neither significant playtests nor great thought on how the upgrades you have could balance this out, but offhand that is what I have noticed. All in all, it's very promising work. If you don't mind I may take some of it out for playtest myself after Starfleet has its day in space. Keep up the good work.
