The HOPLITE Mjolnir variant features targeting and datalink advancements to improve the accuracy and lethality of Spartans utilizing long-range heavy munitions such as the M41 SSR MAV/AW.
— Official summary[2]

Mjolnir Powered Assault Armor/Hoplite is a variant of Mjolnir Powered Assault Armor featured first in Halo 2: Anniversary,[3] and was later featured in Halo Online.[4] It was created to help SPARTANs with targeting using heavy munitions such as the M41 Rocket Launcher.

As of 2555, a GEN2 variant of the Hoplite armor which is manufactured by ONI's Watershed Division is being tested on board Anvil Station. It is stated that it was designed as an alternative to SPI armor, and is a low-cost armor designed for pairing with pistols. While it may lack the sophistication of other Mjolnir armor sets, it makes up for it in that it is easy to repair and build.[1]
