Its too big right there. The mammoth should not be as large as a three story building.

You don't need a three story building to transport a warthog.

The story of the mod you had me write takes place way before Halo 4.

i don't think you know your halo wars too well... it's a mobile field command center+vehicle and infantry transport so it would make sense that it would be that big. and the actual unit is just as big.

I say it should be just big enough for 2 lanes, after all it needs to be able to go from point A to B so about the size of the 2 lanes of the road should do it.

I know my Halo very well, a mobile command center does not need to be three stories tall, and it does not need to be that large to transport infantry or vehicles.

Think its perfect size, seems right since the Mammoth had 3 levels tall.

And to everyone's argument to it wasn't built before halo 4. Just remember, by the books, the UNSC had Hornets since before first contact with the covenant. And all the halo games are basically smash and grab moments. Not once in any halo game, besides halo 4, were they able to propare before a major conflict. Halo 1,2, and 3 all took place with "this is what we got lying around" settings, so for all we know, all these units being added to this mod have been around for a very long time.

Be nice if the mammoth had a like 2 chain guns for small arms protection, but it being able to make units, and have a long range gun, it is more suited to be a forward mobile command base and be protected by other units.

If I may, you can't really confirm they DIDN'T have this before Halo 4. Just because it wasn't mentioned doesn't mean it doesn't exist, it just seems to me like it had some limited capabilities. As far as I saw in Halo 4, besides being able to carry a fuckton of troops, it's main weaponry was used for anti-air purposes. The way the gun is mounted actually prevents it from looking at the ground. Also, this mod uses vehicles from Halo Wars, which utterly ****** the timeline sideways anyways.

Its equipped with a mini MAC with a recharge of 13 seconds it can destroy a vehicle or infantry with one hit, the scarab is going to need 2 shots to kill this thing the scarab is going to get a thicker armor then the Mammoth to balance it.

Nice model and good texturing but practical wise it does seem a tad bit on the excessively large side. That thing can't possible be very mobile, its cornering would have to be incredibly wide.

Christ. Your all idiots. Apinkpanzers entire argument was invalid and it doesn't matter what timeline it is it doesn't change the size of something that is canon and in the game itself and regardless it is the modders choice to make it whatever size he wants.

If anyone wants to argue the timing of the Mammoth, Cortana says in Halo 4 that the Infinity was in development after the start of the Human-Covenant War using high-tech upgrades that no other ship had used before, but she had figured it was scrapped when it was more cost-effective to retrofit older ships with new weapons.
