Halo Wars 2 Mammoth?

OP mcdoit

I am wondering if we will see the Mammoth return in Halo Wars 2 as a special unit? The reason why I am asking is because Halo Wars 2 takes place after Halo 5, but the Spirit of Fire isn't up to date on tech. Also it could be Isabel" special unit. Finally, I would love to see the Mammoth return. It is one of my favorites.
The only way to balance out the mammoth is if the covenant had an equally powerful unit and I can't think of one that matches the overpowered-ness of the mammoth, considering it can one shot a huge as forerunner turret, let alone a scarab.

So so it probably won't be in game, despite how cool it is
Unliekly, unless Isabel has the blueprints for it.
They could make the turret on it balanced by nerfing it a little.
I think that the mammoth would be a great upgrade for the elephant.
I'm excited to see if the mammoth will make it's way into Halo Wars 2.

The covenant do have equally powerful units, Scarabs.

Mammoths would have a much more powerful attack but weaker armour
Mammoths would be faster in a sprint, but less agile/manoeuvrable

Scarabs could climb buildings/terrain, mammoths couldn't

Well that could work out
I am hoping that we at least get to see the mammoth in the campaign.
Even if it is too overpowered to be a normal unit, there could be a campaign mission where the objective is using one like the Halo Wars mission where you had to escort the bomb.

Scrabs could also literally glass the beams of the Mammoth pretty easily. The mammoth simply doesn't have the armor to block out Scarab beams, especially if it's something that of a super scarab, or a way bigger scarab.

Plus, the Mammoth is essentially a Cobra in a lot of ways. Just a Mammoth has a way, way more powerful gun, weaker armor, and it also takes like 5 minutes for it to reload and be shot again. It's similar to the Covenant plasma turret on one of the multiplayer 1v1 maps in Halo Wars 1. Just you couldn't move it, and it had a infinite range essentially (you could literally shoot the enemy's base with it without even seeing it)

But all in all, I just don't see the Mammoth being in Halo Wars 2, simply due to the way it is. Could possibly 1 shot enemy team units pretty quickly, and deal a ton of damage to enemy bases.

Mammoth would be way OP xD
The scarab is just as OP
I thick it would be great to see a mammoth as a mobile base.

It has to be very slowly
