Simulated Warthog variant

- Main article: M12B Warthog
This Warthog variant appears to be an M12B Warthog chassis. It does not mount a turret in the conventional turret mount such as the LRV configuration, but instead mounts a machine gun superficially similar to the M247H machine gun on top of the vehicle's roll cage while the cargo bed itself is free to store equipment and passengers like Scout Warthogs. This turret appears to be remotely-controlled by the crew, eliminating the need for a dedicated gunner. In UNSC simulations, this vehicle can be driven and gunned by only one SPARTAN-IV driver, though it is based on the actions of a full squad of ODSTs, leaving the vehicle's true nature and specifications up for debate.[note 1]
This vehicle was used in a UNSC simulation of the Battle of Mombasa. In the simulation, the vehicle was driven by an Unidentified Spartan-IV in the place of the actual ODST squad Alpha-Five. It is unknown if the actual Alpha-Five used this vehicle in the battle.[note 1]

The remote-control system for the turret is similar to the real-world CROWS system used by Humvees.
List of appearances
- Halo: Spartan Strike (First appearance)
- In Halo: Spartan Strike the player drives this vehicle as a lone SPARTAN-IV. Due to this, the game could not use a regular Warthog as the player would not be able to drive and gun at the same time. It is unknown if this vehicle is intended to serve as a stand-in for what would be, in-canon, a regular Warthog LRV used by the ODSTs of Alpha-Five.
