The M12A2 Warthog is a UNSC light vehicle. It is a variant of the standard LRV and was made to replace the M12A1. However, it was never succesful, being replaced by the M12G1.
The M12A1 Warthog is exactly the same as the standard M12 Warthog LRV, except for two differences:
1. It has yellow paint stripes lined through the base, sides, back, and turret, to distinguish it from the standard M12 Warthog and even the M12A1 LAAV. It's also painted black. 2. It is armed with a 102mm SC-HE Rocket Turret on the back seat. with one tube.
The M12A2 is armed with a rocket turret, with one tube, similar in looks to a gauss cannon. The turret can shoot one surface-to-surface rocket, and reloads automatically. The reloading time takes about 1.5 seconds. The weapon can inflict hellish damage with it's 102mm missiles.
The vehicle saw very limited usage, and few were ever produced. It was made to replace the M12A1, the Gauss hog did that job better, and thus it was decommishioned. The few final units that were produced were onboard the Pillar of Autumn, but were destroyed during the fight for Reach.
