The M12G1 Light Anti-Armor Vehicle (M12G1 LAAV), commonly known as the Gauss Warthog, is a variant of the UNSC M12 Force Application Vehicle that features a mounted M68 ALIM Gauss Cannon.[2] It is designed to quickly defeat lightly-armored vehicles such as Type-25 RAV Choppers and Type-32 RAV Ghosts. The M68 Gauss Cannon fires 25mm hypersonic speed projectiles by asynchronous magnetic acceleration in the base of the cannon and takes about a half a second to recharge between cannon shots.

GameplayEdit

AdvantagesEdit

  • The gauss cannon is devastating to vehicles.
  • The gauss cannon can kill Spartans and Elites in one shot.
  • The medium rate-of-fire is fast enough to obtain multikills.

DisadvantagesEdit

  • The Gauss Warthog's armor is itself vulnerable to anti-vehicle weaponry.

TriviaEdit

  • The Gauss Warthog first appeared in the E3 2000 Halo: Combat Evolved trailer. It was cut from the final game.
  • A label on the Halo 4 Gauss Warthog reads, "BIG SCARY LASER. DO NOT LOOK INTO BEAM WITH REMAINING EYE."
  • In Halo 4 Title Update v1.04, the Gauss Warthog's auto aim, magnetism, and damage was reduced.[3]
