"It's Beauty and the Beast."
—Advertisement for the Civilian Warthog

The Civilian Warthog (simply referred to as the "Hog" in advertisement or "Yellow/Golden Warthog") is the civilian version of the popular United Nations Space Command vehicle.[1]

Designed and Manufactured by AMG Transport Dynamics, the three and half-ton civilian edition of the M12 LRV Warthog is available in a wide range of colors, trim, and equipment specifications. This heavy duty off-road vehicle is extremely popular with off-world explorers. Compared to the military version, this is a luxurious automobile, with trans-system GPS, omni-directional networked surround sound, complete user-specific voice control, a highly efficient long range power cell and the capability to drive itself.

2549 Model

The last revision (2549) had less power than the 2553 model per wheel in terms of horsepower and kilowattage. As with every other iteration of the Hog, each wheel has an independent drive-by-wire electric motor, with power generated by a forward-housed low-profile hydrogen I/C plant. The hydrogen fuel is burned at very high temperature with a synthetic carbon and silicon catalyst to achieve better fuel consumption. One billboard in New Mombasa said this: "Drive with reckless abandon in the new 12th-gen Hog. Comfort, luxury, bone-crushing power; it's beauty and the beast."

2553 Model

The most recent 2553 edition features a Graf/Hauptman solar/saline actuator capable of converting up to 12 litres of fresh, brackish, or salt water into hydrogen, with increased efficiency allowing the vehicle to get a range of around 200 kilometres after an overnight condensation capture. It has advanced computer systems that allow a perfect distribution of power to every wheel over any surface and is only prone to flipping in hard-bank turns. Thanks to an increased structural rigidity and gas-inflated restraints, this vehicle holds the honor of having the highest passenger safety rating of any recreation vehicles in 2553.

The standard model starts at a hefty 86,000 UN Credits. A manual-transmission version stickers at UNCr 81,000, while the limited edition wood-trimmed Classic Edition with winch, tow and luggage rack tops out at a price of UNCr 91,000.


  • A billboard for a yellow Civilian Warthog can be spotted on the Halo 2 multiplayer maps Headlong and District, and the campaign level Metropolis.
  • The Warthog and Hog's relation is a parallel to the present days' Humvee and Hummer.
  • The Civilian Warthog was featured in the December 2551 Edition of Car & Pilot Magazine.
  • It is possible to obtain a "Civilian" Warthog in Halo 3 through a glitch.
  • The windows on the Wathogs are called silverias after the substance silver.
