Concept art of the aircraft.

The Rhino was a human vehicle, used in the role as a gunship. It carried numerous cannons and missile pods near the stern of the craft. It was known to be featured in the cancelled Untitled Halo MMO [1].

It bears a notable resemblance to the Pelican dropship series, though with added missiles, chainguns, a thruster over its tail section, and enlarged wings with built-in ducted-air fans. It may have been the conceptual inspiration of the Sparrowhawk, a craft that would have filled a similar role in Halo Wars.

Deleted Material

Rhino (Aircraft) is part of the Deleted Material cut from the Halo game.

When developing the Halo games, Bungie and other developers such as Ensemble or Wingnut Interactive had to cut some content from the final games. As such, many aspects of the story, such as vehicles, gameplay, design, and even story elements, didn't make it into the final versions. Many of the elements have been confirmed by such material as videos and commentary on the Halo Limited Edition Special DVD, interviews with developers, and released concept art.
