Halo installations map by GeneralHelghast Halo installations map by GeneralHelghast
Here is a map for the Halo Installations, where we can see a connection of the rings around installation 07 while the Ark is outside of the Milky way, being used as a device to activate them. The Forerunners used it when they had failed many times to crush the Flood.

Did you know that there used to be eleven halo installations?
Try and picture what the formation would look like if they'd survived.

why would 87 be in the middle if the other ones have a blast area that can well cover the center then 87 really has no effect in the dead center of the galaxy. just saying...

I agree that their cant be any installations in the galactic center as most of the populated stars would be spread out from the outer hub to the galactic rim the gravitational sheer alone from a super massive black-hole would tear it to pieces and throughout the halo story we've seen how easily they can be destroyed i.e both of the Installation 04s and the original halos that attacked the Forerunner Homeworld in Cryptum proving they are far from indestructible. Originally the flood was contained behind the Maginot sphere, a smaller portion of our galaxy and the halos were fired before they broke through, also as stated be 343 GS that the Installation has a maximum effective pulse of 25,000 LY so they would require overlapping fields of fire to be in anyway effective. In my opinion to get the best coverage with 7 installations would be 3 around the inner galactic hub and the other 4 arranged around them for the galactic rim, course at the end of the day its 343 industries that decides how they were deployed and fired. hope this helps if u ever want to build on this otherwise nice attempt:D

Yeah, it'd make more sense if there's 4 on the outside and 3 on the inside

When did she say that? If the Halos surrounded Earth, their blast radii wouldn't cover the galaxy at all.

wrong!!!!!! as far as my sources tell me, including parts of the books, the halo's are numbered 4-10

they numbered them 1 to 7 according to the 7 reference

actually the halos are numbered from 01 through 07. with the ark starting of as installation 00.

it would make no sense to start of with 4.
you even see this in the ark's control room. the hologram of alpha halo(installation 4) is NOT the first halo to appear in the line up, it is the 4th one - like it should be.

There apparently used to be 12. Then the flood hijacked the other 5. So they blew them up.

uhm whut? unless i've got everything wrong, and i'm not reading any right sources, there were never 12 halos. in all canon sources describing the history of the building of the halos, ONLY 7 are known. you may count 8 because installation 04 had a replacement ring after it was destroyed.

so unless you can show me a canonical source that states 12 halos were built, you've got everything wrong.

In Cryptum, it mentions that there were 12 halos in total, along with the Lesser Ark (the ark in Halo 3) at one end of the galaxy, and The Greater Ark at the other. The Lesser Ark built the halos we know of today, which were about 10,000 km in size while the Greater Ark built ones twice the size, which about 33,000 km in size.

Five of them were destroyed in a massive battle over the Forerunner Capital World when Mendicant Bias tried to destroy the Forerunner leadership in one blow.

Pretty sure they were taken over by the flood. Eventually destroyed by the forerunners I'm guessing. I have to read Cryptum again :/

if you think thats bad, just look up the reasons for why bungie made the hayabusa armor helmet the way it is.

this might be a slight spoiler but if you've read halo: cryptum, you'd know that there were originally 12 halos in the original halo array.
