AVIATOR-class Mjolnir is a variant of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor manufactured by Hannibal Weapon Systems.[3]

Overview[edit]

Specifications[edit]

The Aviator helmet has a pilot-centric HUD integration.[1] This ultrawideband machine interlink gives Spartan-IV pilots unparalleled control over their aircraft.[4][5] The helmet also has a pressure-stabilized rebreather feed.[1]

The Aviator chest has a rigid collar to mitigate flight duress.[1] The Aviator suite also includes integral gravity compensators and hardware-accelerated flight combat interlinks.[1]

Development history[edit]

For decades the notion of specialized pilot armor for Spartans was thought redundant given MJOLNIR variants were already suited for the rigors. With the segregation of the Spartan-IVs into their own autonomous branch, the need for multiple intra-organizational disciplines materialized. This led to the Aviator variant's creation.[1]

Aviator was manufactured by Hannibal Weapon Systems and tested at WG/Facility 93-00/Kotka. It was build from the ground up and was designed for the operation of GA-TL1 Longswords, YSS-1000 Sabres, F-41 Broadswords, and B-65 Shortsword bombers.[1]

Usage[edit]

Spartan pilots meeting D3-17 regulations and higher are required to use this armor in Broadsword A/X attack fighter engagements operations to comply with standard asset security protocols and the Budgetary Retention Hearings of 2554.[6]

Because of the increased production of the vehicles the Aviator armor was made for, this variant has become popular among Spartans.[1] It is employed by the Spartan interceptor pilots attached to the security of ANVIL Station.[7]

Production notes[edit]

  • The dubbing of "Csar" refers to Combat search and rescue, which are missions that typically involve aircraft.
  • The dubbing of "Ace" refers to military terminology for a pilot who has scored at least five air-to-air kills.
  • The dubbing of "Delta" refers to the NATO phonetic alphabet, where D is "Delta".
  • In Halo 5: Guardians, the Aviator body is also used for the Locus body armor.
