Well, I have a theory that 343 heard the crying for a Falcon in MOR, and after that, just ANY UNSC flying vehicle, l so this is a smart-alec way of giving it to us.
You have a great point
How far can the vtol even chnage the way they work if all are supposed to hover in the air?
Isn't it just a re-skin of the Phaeton. Its movements are almost identical.One could argue the phaeton is a reskin of the hornet then because their movements are almost identical.
"Oh, you want a Falcon? A Hornet? Something from Halo Wars? Well, here's a human Phaeton! It's what you always wanted!"
"Oh you want a Falcon? A hornet? Something from Halo wars? well all of those are already usable in multiple games on xbox one. Here have a brand new vehicle with brand new lore. Although it moves like a phaeton it has less armour, more shields which completely changes the playbook. it can also simultaneously use both armaments. Although it cant warp its slightly faster more agile and strafes better. Y r we doing this? because we like creating fresh new experiences like halo 5s forge, halo 5s warzone, halo 5s arena, halo 5s custom games, halo 5s weapon balancing and halo 5s free dlc (in todays world that's a fresh experience)"
why not the falcon you say. Because lots of bosses like caption wow mike and angry 9 year olds with spnkers will be looking for overkills.
why not the hornet you say. Cos youre -Yoinking!- complaining about phaeton reskins and passengers .... well warthogs are dying out ask them why
why not stuff from halo wars. VULTURE OP. HORNET ALREADY DISCUSSED. NIGHTINGALE CAN'T HEAL UR BUTTHURT *********** . SPARROWHAWK I cant remember what it did
