The Series 12 Single Operator Lift Apparatus (Series 12 SOLA), more commonly known as the jetpack, is a UNSC jump jet pack developed by Lethbridge Industrial.[1]


Design details[edit]

The Series 12 SOLA is one of many jet packs which have evolved dramatically over twenty sequential generations of development.[2] It propels its operator vertically for a brief period of time. Although it is designed specifically for SPARTAN-IV personnel, but also utilized more broadly across the United Nations Space Command.[3]

The Series 12 jet pack is attached to the back of infantry body armor by a gravity mitigation harness linkage;[3] this harness linkage is compatible with all current UNSC combat armor and tech suits. Although the new versions of the second generation of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor used by the SPARTAN-IVs features an integrated set of thrusters, a thruster pack or jetpack is still required for full maneuvering capabilities. The Series 12 jetpack features integrated fly-by-light controls and is seamlessly integrated with the MJOLNIR armor.[1]


In 2557, during the Battle of Requiem, John-117, along with Spartans from Gypsy Company attached to UNSC Infinity, employed the Series 12 SOLA during the UNSC's attack on the shield world's gravity well.[4]

Production notes[edit]
