M12A1 Rocket Warthog

The M12A1 Light Anti-Armor Vehicle, abbreviated as M12A1 LAAV and commonly referred to as the Rocket Warthog, is a UNSC ground vehicle. It is a variant of the M12 Force Application Vehicle.
The M12A1 LAAV is one of the UNSC's anti-armor vehicles, designed to quickly and efficiently defeat lightly armored vehicles. Despite this, it was rarely employed in the Human-Covenant War. Unlike other M12 variants, the M12A1 can be differentiated by its appearance; the M12A1 Rocket Warthog is painted in black and has yellow paint stripes lined through the base. Its seats are also yellow and its tires have a darker color tone than those of the standard Warthog.
The M12A1 LAAV made its first in-game appearance in Halo: Combat Evolved for PC's multiplayer mode, and was thus later included in the Halo: Combat Evolved multiplayer component of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
