Umm, I think we had enough spartan programs. Were good we dont need like 50 more spartan programs. Btw I never knew there was actually a spartan V program, so it's only going to be active until 2568? I guess cuz we all know in reach when we see 6s helmet, a year date will come and say something like 2590 something idk probably the spartan V program already had begun 30 years ago

I don’t even understand what’s happening with this post anymore.

There isn't a V program at this time, the OP was just making assumptions
Spartan V will exist only if there is a new great technological progress. For now, Spartan IV are the best that UNSC can do. They are as efficient than Spartan II, not expensive and there is not big ethical issue in their selection.

And from a narrative point of view I don't think there's much point making a spartan V. The SIV's were generally poorly received and any plot point the V"s could have is easily covered by the 4's.

Yeah totally agreed. Spartan IV introduction could have been way better in Halo 4.
According to halo lore, Canon, and theory. Spartan-V Program exists and is better than other existed programs. Spartan-V program will be the rebirth of Spartan II. Spartan II's would work as a teachers of Spartan-V candidates. We need Spartan V?
Yes, we need it, and we need it more now that the UNSC INFINITY had fallen.
Spartan-V would wear better armor, and their augmentation would be better but, even more better more expensive and dangerous. But the Spartan-V program would work as hunters of Spartans.
Meant, that if any Spartan II, III, or IV want to desert they will hunt them.
More strong? Yes.
Better? Yes.
In halo infinite we see some images of the MJOLNIR mark VII and we know this armor auto-repair himself and heal the wounds of the user.
Better than Spartan II? Hmmmm yess Obviously, they are trained by Spartan II and that includes 087,104,058,019,084,092, 117 and others. Hmmmm I guess that's enough to kill a whole army. A Spartan V can kill three Spartan II so easy.
"The spartan-V program will be the rebirth of the spartan-IIs only better we have Spartan-IIs to train them and the best armor to suit them." (Vice Admiral Waruun)
Waruun's proposal for the project detailed radical changes in many different fields. They also possessed superior physical and mental attributes when compared to other Men and Women their age. This narrowed the candidates down to People who would be taught in the art of warfare and military values, from a younger age ( ninteen, twenty, twenty-one which cannot be taught to older enlisted personnel.

Though conventional body armor had protected soldiers for centuries, the SPARTAN-V project's second radical change involved integrating the subject with a new powered exoskeleton device, designed to help keep its user safe and provide a powerful means of combating enemy forces. The drawback of this new armor is its requirement for augmenting the subject, effectively turning the SPARTANs into human guinea pigs.

Despite the tremendous risk and the unethical means of creating new soldiers, the SPARTAN-II project got the green light by the top brass within the Office of Naval Intelligence, who concluded that the lives that could be saved far outweighed the risks involved. The project was initially granted funding for 2000 candidates, though funding was later reduced to half this number. By 2552, 780 suitable candidates had been identified through DNA gathered from the UNSC's civilian vaccination program, but funding was further reduced to support again, only half that number.
All things considered, Spartan 5s could be a thing if the demand was there and new technology was found or used. It's a big big universe, who knows what humans could become/learn.
So, shut up!! Spartan-V would be a thing in the future? Yes.
But they are so strong and powerful To implement it in a game.
And this Dr Helsey is Toxic, always she is, she thinks Spartans are war machines!?
They are just people with feelings and that makes them human, and united humanity will never be corrupted. Remember, we are the only breed that stands out from all others according to halo lore. Humans would be the successors to the mantle of responsibility. It doesn't matter AI, Covenant, forerunner, Banished or Flood. We stand out because we have not given up since Leonidas and his men fell thousands of years ago.

That's true only the time will decide what happen with the Spartan-V program. Besides 343 Industries own the Spartan-V. Who knows maybe we can see them in Halo INFINITE.

Someone has been drinking the ONI kool aid.
They are war machines. That's their purpose. It's what makes the entire point of the Spartans a interesting concept. Without it and just making any regular old volunteer a spartan just as good or better than than the II's not only devalues the Spartans, it devalues the Halo franchise as a whole.

Nope, Thomas Laskey said: we aren't war machines, we are humans.
Spartans are super soldiers with augmentation and soldiers aren't machines they are humans who protect what they love.
Including John have feelings.
Machines don't have feelings. Then, why The demon John 117 have feelings?
You know what I mean now?
Being a Spartan doesn't makes you a machine, makes you a Killing machine and that what's every Sargeant say when you enlist in the army.

The UNSC would never make a Spartan that expensive just for it to hunt Spartans, which is so uncommon that it wouldn’t be worth spending money on.

You seem to be applying the fan fiction to real events.

And also begs the question....would they have to make a spartan VI if a spartan V needed to be hunted?
Well right now it's not needed. SIVs are perfect. The only way I'd see a SV program is if other species get involved as Spartans and a new program is needed to combing them.

They aren't machines literally, no. But the entire existence of the Spartans was to be war machines. ONI wasn't sinking every resource into their creation because they just wanted more front line soldiers. That's why they would allow dozens or hundreds of marines to die in order to use a spartan for a key mission or asset. And losing a spartan was a huge blow. It's why they made the III's and used them for the suicide missions instead of the II's, because they weren't worth as much in ONI's eyes. It's the nature of war. That's why the ethical quandaries around the Spartans was such a intriguing thing and one of the few good things done in halo 4 with Chiefs character arc. But it's also why having ONI and Margaret Parangosky shifting the blame all onto to Halsey pretending they were always against the Spartan II program not only is bad writing, it's also outright B.S and insulting since ONI is the most a moral organization out there.

Having hundreds or thousands of Spartan IV's and V's actually diminishes the key aspect of Spartans and the halo universe itself.
