“It's a Warthog with rockets and it is awesome.”

The M12R Light Anti-Aircraft Vehicle,[3] abbreviated as M12R LAAV and commonly referred to as the Rocket Warthog, or Rocket 'Hog, is a UNSC ground vehicle.[1][4] It is a variant of the M12 Force Application Vehicle and features a mounted M79 Multiple Launch Rocket System.

DescriptionEdit

The M12R LAAV is designed to quickly and efficiently defeat lightly armored vehicles such as Type-48 LAGC "Revenant" and Type-32 RAV "Ghost". The Rocket 'Hog is almost exactly the same in every detail to the standard M12 "Warthog" FAV except that it is equipped with a mounted M79 MLRS which fires six 65mm rockets per volley every two to three seconds. Its rockets are capable of locking onto aircraft only. One drawback is that once you start firing you cannot stop until the rockets are all shot which can lead to friendly fire and flipping over from unwanted rockets.

TriviaEdit

  • It was first sighted in Red vs. Blue Halo: Reach PSA: Deja View.[5]
  • In campaign, it is advised that you do not leave a Rocket Warthog unattended when enemies are nearby, as Elites can get into the turret and kill you with the devastating missiles when you come back.
  • Written on the front-left side of the Rocket Warthog is "M/AAV-20".
  • A.I.'s can control the amount of missiles they can shoot and the missiles home onto all enemies (ground troops, vehicles, aircraft). However, no matter how many rockets the A.I fires, the muzzle will still flash six times.
  • In Rocket Hog Race, the M12R's turret can be used to right the vehicle if fired with precise timing.
