Cortana: The 2554 M12 Force Application Vehicle “Warthog”
Cortana: The M12 Force Application Vehicle, better known as the Warthog, is a highly mobile and adaptable platform serving the UNSC. Famed for its toughness and sturdy design, stories of Hogs surviving numerous tours of active combat duty abound. But none is more well-known than the tale of the Daedalus. Near the beginning of the Covenant war, the UNSC frigate Daedalus went down in atmosphere over the planet Galgalia. Smashing into the irradiated world's high-gravity surface, the ship's molten wreckage was scattered for hundreds of miles, an un-survivable event. And yet four Warthogs had in fact survived the impact. Marines from the motor pool had buckled themselves into the Hogs' seats as the frigate plummeted to the surface. Strapped to the ship's deck, incredibly the vehicles remained intact. Due to the restrictions of the Cole Protocol, the marines would wait months for aid. To survive, they used the hogs to desalinate water and search for food. And they even programmed their radios to broadcast the distress signal that eventually lead to their rescue.

- The Warthog has 343 printed near the hood of the Warthog, referencing 343 Industries.
- There is a monitor that has a tower from the Halo 3 map Valhalla after the Warthog is turned on. This is possibly a reference to how Halo 4 got a remake of that map.
- Jeremy Clarkson narrates the trailer version of the overview of the Warthog.
