The M12A1 Light Anti-Armor Vehicle (acronym M12A1 LAAV), more commonly known as the Rocket Warthog, is a UNSC ground vehicle.

Introduction

It is a notable variant of the Warthog series of vehicle, but is by far the least customary. It holds a three barreled rocket turret on the back replacing the LAAG. It is seen only in Halo PC and Halo Mac. It's position as the UNSC LAAV is surpassed by the far more universal M12G1 Warthog LAAV in Halo 2.

Description

The M12A1 Warthog is exactly the same as the standard M12 Warthog LRV, except for a few differences:

  1. It has yellow paint stripes lined through the base, to distinguish it from the standard M12 Warthog. It is also painted black, different from the normal color of a normal Warthog, which is a metallic olive. The seats are also yellow.
  2. It is armed with a 102mm SC-HE Rocket Turret on the back seat. The turret can shoot three surface-to-surface rockets before reloading, but like all projectile weapons, it must be reloaded when the magazine capacity is depleted. The reloading time takes about four seconds, similar to the reload time of a Scorpion in Halo: Combat Evolved. The rockets are terribly inaccurate when fired in quick succession.
  3. The tires are a darker color than those of the standard Warthog.

Trivia

  • Chief Petty Officer Mendez has his custom-made and trademark Warthog transport similar to the M12A1, although Mendez's Warthog had a rack of Argent V Missiles.
  • Firing the turret rapidly will significantly decrease the accuracy.
