"You have been called upon to serve, you will be trained... and you will become the best we can make of you. You will be the protectors of Earth and all her colonies."
―Dr. Catherine Halsey to the SPARTAN-II recruits
The Advanced War Tactics Group (AWTG), better known as the SPARTAN-II Program, was an elite special operations unit that fell under the supervision of UNSC Naval Special Warfare. It comprised the second generation of the legendary Project SPARTAN, a conglomeration of attempts by Naval Intelligence to coordinate an infantry force consisting entirely of chemically augmented, ultra efficient, super-soldiers. The program was overseen by civilian scientist Catherine Elizabeth Halsey, MD, PhD, while a varying number of senior ONI personnel kept the program in-check from a military standpoint.
