Query : We all know at the beginning that are 33 Spartans-II class 1, which entered service March 9, 2525 (on selected 75 subjects Spartan-II project).
Then all the spartans available, numbering 25 members, integrated for the operation Red Flag August 27, 2552.
Among them, known 14 names (Anton-044, James-005, Li-008 Joshua-029, Vinh-030, Isaac-039, Will-043, Linda-058, Macolm-059, Anton-044, Kelly-we know 087, Grace-09, John-117, Fred-104) and the other 11 are shown in radio conversations on the planet Reach.
But, curiously enough, the names of 22 other Spartans in service are known, see for yourself :
Daisy-023 (in 2531)
Otto-031 (July 25, 2557)
Samuel-034 (November 27, 2525)
Kurt-051 (November 3, 2552)
Jorge-052 (August 14, 2552)
Margaret-053 (July 25, 2557)

Jerome-092 (MIA with the Spirit of Fire)
Adriana-111 (MIA with Gray Team)
Mike-120 (MIA with Gray Team)
Alice-130 (MIA with the Spirit of Fire)
Bizarre, we count a total of 57 Spartans-II Class 1 in service.
Hence my question : Can we explain this excess Spartans ?
Thit is a reflection from the French community in which I part.
