The Army Lists: The UNSC

The UNSC: the protector of Humanity, but also a crippled and dying war machine trying to defend itself from the hostility and mystery of the stars.

The UNSC Command includes Generals, Colonels, and Lieutenants from the UNSC Marine Corps and the UNSC Army. Due to the fact that the UNSC Navy does not actually engage the enemy, but rather services the vessels and guns, they do not appear on the battlefield.

The UNSC Special Units include the infamous ODSTs (Orbital Drop Shock Troopers) and SPARTANs. They have enhanced stats compared to the rank-and-file soldiers, especially the SPARTANs.

The UNSC Core Units include the backbone of its military machine: Marines and Army Troopers. They are multipurpose soldiers trained for anything, whether it be a Rebel's insurrection or the Flood's infection. They have average profiles when compared to all of the other races, somewhere between Grunts and Elites. They are divided into Rifle Squads, Heavy Weapons Squads, and Sniper Teams, as are the ODSTs aforementioned. There will also be several miscellaneous units, such as Policemen (as seen in Halo 3: ODST) and Militiamen. Transports such as the Warthog Carrier and the Falcon may also be chosen.

The UNSC Vehicle Units include popular choices like the Cobra, the Wolverine, or the Scorpion. The Warthog's many different forms also takes the stage. Aircraft include the Hornet and the Vulture, two heavily-armed platforms.

So, that's a summary of what to expect from the UNSC. Next, we'll talk about the Covenant Empire. Thank you for reading, and see ya next time! Peace.

  1. The humans DO appear on the battlefield, in fact the video games are completely about humans kicking covenant ass!

    Are you going to be making models for these guys?
