///NEW INTEL: MANTIS///

The twenty foot tall, gangly bi-pedal walker know as the MANTIS, is something of an oddity within the UNSC’s vehicle line up.

For starters, the Mantis is (obviously) a walking mech; something that is more commonly seen in spaceports than on the battlefield. As with most UNSC vehicles, it does bear resemblance to its Earth insect namesake. This however, does not necessarily mean that the Mantis is more of a tool than a weapons platform. Quite the opposite.

The Mantis walker is equipped with a rotary rapid fire machine-gun on one and arm and a pod of rockets on the other, leaving it capable of causing massive damage in a short period of time. The reverse jointed knees on the walker allow it to quickly traverse terrain that would cause a Scorpion MBT to seek another route.

The Mantis first saw use in 2553 aboard the UNSC Port Stanley, and the UNSC Infinity carries an unknown number as well. No doubt the Mantis’ firepower, maneuverability, and relatively high surprise factor for enemies of the UNSC, will serve to solidify the reputation of the Mantis.
