Gorgon (cut vehicle)
This article is about the cut Halo Wars vehicle. For the UNSC heavy destroyer, see UNSC Gorgon.
The Gorgon was intended to be a Covenant anti-air ground vehicle to appear in Halo Wars, likely filling a similar niche to the UNSC's Wolverine. It used two sturdy legs to carry a bulky chassis and was armed with heavy needlers capable of shooting down enemy aircraft. It was eventually deleted in favor of the Vampire for two reasons: it created a recognition problem, confusing players as to whether it was an infantry unit or a vehicle; and the Covenant had too many ground units already, instead needing more aircraft. The Vampire is likewise armed with heavy needler but also features a stasis cannon.
