On an aside halo reach takes place before the first halo, so chief is actually Spartan 3 that's why he has the most recent mark armor instead of that rediculous fall damage armor. So john, what your saying is they will fight in the shade? My marines are loyal to the man god and pay there dues, though there actions are questioned by the inquisition they still stand by humanity in the struggle for the universe.
NO i was simply saying that the space marines are a blend of all the greatess warroir class that history, and our future will know.
As for MC hes a spartanII, also known as John-117 (watch halo legands theres a shot of him with 117 on his armour, hes also called John by Doc. Halsey), he was recuited before the events of reach, and is the last Known surviving SpartanII.
The SpartanIII program came about because the UNSC High Command seeing that altho the S2's where great on the feild, there where too few of them to make a difference in the greater scheme of the war, they where extremly expensive to produce, and Halsey had postponed the program because of the specific geneic requiments of children been for the program. It is effective a Program desided to make cheaper and more numerous supersolider
the S3's do not use the mjolnir power armor but a unpowered environReactive stealth suit that allows them to be very stealth and hop up and stab ppl to death.
It is true that most S3's where a Semi-Powered Infiltration Armor. Which is like beefed up ODST armour with a optical camo feature, but is less advanced and less powerful than MJOLNIR armour, however is cheaper to produce. Nobel team (the focus of the Reach game) do wear MJOLNIR armour (Mark V(B)) developed for SPECWAR Group Three.
