This article is about the Type-36 Scarab model. For other types of Scarab, see Scarab. For real-world uses of the word, see Scarab (disambiguation).
The Type-36 Ultra-Heavy Siege Platform, colloquially known as the Scarab, is a Covenant quadrupedal mining platform, occasionally used as a heavy weapon platform. Type-36 Scarabs are fitted with a massive Class-4 plasma cannon. These weapons are analogous to those fitted on the Type-27 Mantis, though they are likely a field modification.
Type-36 Scarabs use a variety of different chassis designs, which rarely alters the performance characteristics of each individual vehicle. The Type-36 Scarab uses Lekgolo colonies bound together with its control systems.
