Mark VI MOD
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Mark VI MOD is a MJOLNIR armor variant of MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/Mark VI modified by Cortana while stranded on the UNSC Forward Unto Dawn, with a MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor (GEN2) variant produced by ONI's Watershed Division.
Mark VI MOD closely resembles an earlier line of Mark IV armor. The suit's firmware was modified, altering the HUD as well as improving the suit's shield recharge rate and its compatibility with Covenant armor plugins. Mark VI MOD also includes a built-in thruster system enabling John-117 to slow his descent while in free fall and propel himself forward in zero gravity.
Referred to as Mark VI MOD, the Mark VI Mjolnir armor worn by MCPO John-117 following the end of the Human-Covenant War was updated by UNSC AI Cortana during their four years and seven months of cryosleep aboard the UNSC Forward Unto Dawn. Cortana used manufacturing and diagnostic systems to repair and alter John's armor.
During her time on the Dawn, Cortana also updated the suit's firmware, and during their time on Requiem, Cortana added a soft patch to the firmware to allow compatibility with Covenant armor plugins.
Like most GEN2 MJOLNIR suits in 2558 the GEN2 Mark VI MOD had an extensive built-in thruster system far more advanced than the thrusters built into the GEN1 Mark VI MOD. These allowed for extensive movement options both in zero gravity and in-atmosphere environments.
John-117 used the GEN2 Mark VI MOD extensively from shortly after the Mission to Installation 03 to after the Battle of Genesis. During the Battle of Meridian, the helmet's visor was cracked during a fight between John-117 and Spartan-IV Jameson Locke. By Operation: WOLFE John-117 had begun wearing a GEN3 version of the Mark VI.
Various parts from the Mark VI MOD are present on the NOBLE armor set in Halo 5: Guardians, most notably the gauntlets, boots, and knee guards.
