PostSubject: UNSC Ground Vehicles   Mon Jun 20, 2011 11:34 am

This is a brief description of all vehicles in the UNSC. All descriptions and notes are taken from the Halo Encyclopedia and all copyrights belong to Bungie and 343 Industries.

Elephant

The Elephant is not so much a vehicle as it is a mobile building. It accomodates an enormous cargo bay that can fit up to six Mongoose, or equivalent, such as two Wathogs, while still carrying up to sixteen additional personnel. Its crane can lift, recover, and refuel almost any heavy-armor landcraft that the UNSC deploys, while it also features an additonal Mongoose spirited away in its lower bay for quick reconnaissance.

Mongoose

The Mongoose doesn't feature any weapons as it was designed exclusively for speed. Because of this, the Mongoose is lightning fast and inexpensive, making it one of the first transports available in any war zone.

Scorpion

The Scorpion is a nearly impregnable battle tank capable of shrugging off ordinary ballistics and plasma weapons, while its main gun can gut a Wraith in two or three shots. When speed is required, its allignment on four separated tracks allows it to navigate streams, boulders, and almost anything else that gets in its way. Its main function remains anti-vehicular in nature, but its size and strength mean that it serves as a transport at times. VIPs and sensitive materials can be crammed into the main cabin while up to four soldiers can clamber safely onto the frame intself. [Note: The Scorpion comes in 7 variants, including the M808B2 Sun Devil, the M808B3 Tarantula, the 12-9FS, the 957-A3, the UE8-14, the TB-SB-1, and the HJ3-313]

Wolverine

As a powerful counter-air unit, the Wolverine is fast, maneuverable, and bristling with two Argent V missile pods that can effectively disable airbourne enemies as well as structural defenses. Wolverines have been utilized in a number of ways within the UNSC, but their primary and most conventional purpose in the Human-Covenant War is to prevent air raids from Banshees and troop deployment by way of dropship. Their most significant drawback is their light armor. Although is offers increased speed on the front end, the vehicle is largely defenseless against heavy fire.

Cobra

At first glance, the Cobra appears to be simply be a standard mobile artillery unit and although its primary function is comparable to that mode, it is not entirely accurate. The Cobra operates in two main capacities: First, while deftly mobile, the vehicle has a pair of M66 Gauss Cannons which spin slugs with magnetic coils at a rate fast enough to easily cut holes through Covenant heavy armor. Its secondary method of assault occurs when in "lockdown mode", where the vehicle stabilizes momentary before issuing a shell from its 150mm rail gun. Against enemy-fortified positions and even energy-shielded Covenant bases, the vehicle performs impressively. Against standard vehicles, the Cobra's weaponry in almost unstoppable.

Gremlin

The Gremlin, unlike most other vehicles employed by the UNSC, has only one combat application. These vehicles can fire a concentrated beam of electromagnetic energy which disabls nearly every Covenant vehicle and computer system within range of the pulse. Because of their cost and their lack of mobile defense, they are rarely used in battle.

Grizzly

The Grizzly is a main battle tank variant with a deadly seondary canister shot which can easily destroy enemy ground squads. Additional payload can include twin cannons, a heavy machine gun, and thick armor plating, enabling survival under fierce attack.

Warthog

Nothing symbolizes UNSC ground forces like the M12 Warthog Warthog LRV. With almost a dozen different versions, (Including one built for civilian transport), it is as much a part of the UNSC as boots, guns, and tasteless coffee. (Note: The different versions include the M12A1, the M12G1, the M831 TT, the M864 A, the M868 T, the M914 RV, the Civilian Version, the Flatbed Warthog, and the Warthog APC.)


Well that's it guys! Think its a valuable contribution to the site?

It's pretty convenient to own a copy of the Halo Encyclopedia. Well, I'm just glad I can help out. I'm happy it's relevant.
