Halo 5 Truth
The Covenant vessels seen in this War Games map set are contemporary designs within a historical scenario.
For clarity: All War Game scenarios are combat simulations that take place within the UNSC Infinity. Many such map sets are based on actual locales - either reconstructed from fragmentary records (as in the case of the specific layout of the Undiminished Entelechy and deployment/composition of Thel 'Vadamee's Fleet of Particular Justice) or built from remotely sensed and on-site survey data for mission preparation and familiarization. Specific implementation of artistic [touches] is at the discretion of the simulation designers and [narrative] builders.
Dear Catalog since it seems your still active
How much does a mjolnir system cost?
Fully answering this question would require too many resources at present.For partial clarification and edification: Human [Mjolnir] combat skin platforms require extensive design and simulation refinement before being placed in production, due to the difficulty and time required for the [texo] of their [exotic composite] [lorica] shell, construction and integration of the compact [sun-star] power plant, and [alternate foundation] computing architecture. True costs to the human military was less the [transactional system units] assigned for [checkbook accounting] and more the loss of scientific personnel utilization, [precious-limited] manufacturing time at intact [high tier] [fabricae], and [mass-volume] of exotic materials required for each [bespoke] combat skin.

[AFFIDAVIT] Participant answers that != Set(['Prefect ','Helioskrill']) are [contradictio in adjecto].
Who are the Nelkrons?
Quote: Canon, scrapped, or non-canon? I really have no idea if they were just rumors or what.
Per Curiam - Iunius 2015
Quote: Perhaps you can correct that nonsense about the Ur-Didact's epilogue speech being before Halo 4, as well as Saber's fate, eh Catalog? ;)
Quote: Wonder what caused that hiatus(in a lore point of view I mean) I was concerned that it vanished like a few of the monitors on the Halo Installations.
Quote: What is the status of Hamish Beamish? Note: Recently acquired footage indicates that, during their assault on Circinius IV, the Covenant took note of Beamish's unmatched skills with a space mop and inducted him into their ranks to clean the floor outside their Council Chamber, where he was spotted as recently as November of 2552. Can you confirm this?
Anniversaries and canon inconsistencies
Quote: There are more than that. The Sniper Rifle in CEA is a Model 99 (like in Reach), not a 99C (like the original game) and the pistol is the M6G model from Halo 3.
Was Lasky Promoted?
Quote: In Halo 4, Lasky had one star on his shoulder, but we see him in Halo 5 with four stars. My knowledge of ranks are a bit off but did Lasky go from a Captain to an Admiral in just a couple of months or is this just some sort of retcon?
Notations and clarifications

Quote: Another great issue!
Scarab vs AT-AT
Quote: Also, I think we still haven't answered an important question; Would a scarab beat an AT-AT?
