The UNSC Army is a branch of the UNSCDF primarily responsible for land-based military operations.[1] They launch offensive operations from land bases against land-based targets and are used in capturing and establishing control over UNSC-held territory.[1]

The UNSC Army uses different equipment and weaponry from the Marines, such as the M6J Carbine, the MA37 Assault Rifle, and the M392 DMR.[2] All active duty soldiers of the UNSC Army wear the UNSC Army Battle Dress Uniform.

The UNSC Army frequently patrols colony planets.[citation needed]

Known OperationsEdit

Known planetside operations include the Battle of Actium where Colonel Akono Menteith and the 53rd Armored Division defended the planet against a Covenant invasion force, ultimately resulting in all 12,000 Army soldiers being annihilated and the planet glassed. During the Battle of Reach, Army units assisted SPARTAN Noble Team in defending the planet.[3] During the Battle of Earth, an Army unit of 20 troopers tried to aid Marine forces in New Mombasa and were annihilated in the attempt.[4] During the Battle of Mare Erythraeum on MarsColonel James Ackerson led an unknown number of Army forces against the Brute commander Lepidus and his army.[5][notes 1]

TriviaEdit

  • Some female army soldiers have hair descending down from their helmets, as opposed to the Marines, where all female Marines seem to have crew cuts.
  • The UNSC Army makes its in-game debut in Halo: Reach, in which UNSC Army soldiers, Marines, and ODSTs have their own service tags showing their name and rank. Some of them are named after Bungie and Rooster Teeth employees.
  • The UNSC Army is never mentioned and is not present during the Hillside Memorials dedication in Halo 3.

NotesEdit

  1. Considering that James Ackerson was an Army Colonel, the UNSC most likely used Army forces during the Battle of Mare Erythraeum.
