The Siege Bike is an all-terrain, single-traction tread vehicle designed to target well-fortified enemy strongholds and barricades.[Note 1]

Overview[edit]

Design details[edit]

The siege bike is one of several experimental vehicles developed by ONI's REAP-X department, it is equipped with a side-mounted M268 heavy machine gun with spectrum-enhanced visual tracking functionality. The vehicle is built around a heavy-grade, single-traction tread that allows the bike to be useable in all terrains and achieve speeds of up to 145kph (90mph). The bike is only capable of carrying one operator, who rides atop the vehicle.[2]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ In a Q&A edition of the Halo Bulletin, Frank O'Connor confirmed that REAP-X itself is canonical and that the vehicles were created in collaboration with 343 Industries; however, MEGA Brands were given considerable latitude in the vehicles' designs. O'Connor hinted that the vehicles also canonically exist, though not with the exaggerated aesthetic of the toys.
