Col. Chuck Hodges and Col. Anthony Davit, installation commander and deputy installation commander, showed off a new military vehicle into service at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state. The M12 Light Reconnaissance Vehicle AKA the Warthog. Microsoft lent this real life working model of the infamous Halo combat vehicle to the colonels, and I’m am so jealous. In case you didn’t know, I’m a HUGE Halo fan.
I never realized how many design flaws the Warthog had until now. There is zero protection for the driver, passenger and the turret gunner. Plus in this model there are gas tanks in the rear that are openly exposed and a mouthwatering target for any sniper.
Despite all that, I want one of these for Christmas, so I will be starting GoFundMe account shortly for all of you to donate to this great cause.
