The Flame Warthog, or Flamehog[1], is a variant of the M12 Warthog that features a mounted flamethrower.

Design details[edit]

Main article: M12B Warthog

The Flame Warthog replaced the standard autocannon mount on LRV Warthog models with a white-burning flamethrower.[1] The Flame Warthog is slightly tougher than the standard Warthog model.[2]

Veteran Flame Hog variant[edit]

Some upgraded and slightly more expensive variants of the Flame Warthog replace the mounted flamethrower with a mounted incendiary grenade launcher, and further upgraded armor.[2]

Operational history[edit]

Flame Warthogs were deployed against Banished forces on Installation 00 by Lt. Colonel Morgan Kinsano in 2559. In order to combat aircraft, passengers were armed with M41 rocket launchers.[3]

In Halo Wars 2, the Flame Warthog is a unit exclusive to Morgan Kinsano, replacing the Machine Gun and Gauss Warthogs. Flame Warthogs are great for fighting infantry, but do only okay against vehicles and structures, and do very poor against aircraft. It costs 70 energy in Blitz, while Veteran Flame Warthogs cost 90 energy.
