Halo 3 Campaign Question

The Elites had phantoms that are green. They look the exact same as the covenant phantoms but they and all of there vehicles are purple. So why didn’t we see green ghosts and banshee’s? There were green super carriers aswel?

I’m just curious. For people who don’t understand, here’s a thread that might help: EDIT: Use this link instead, http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=15719403

We only had time to -Yoink!- the dropships. Do you know how much time it takes to rearmour just 1 supercarrier??

They have so many different coloured armour. It’s just the exact same thing except a different colour. I don’t see that being so hard.

The question is were they really re-coloroed or simply schemed hat way to aid gameplay? Reticules turn green when pointed at friendlies.

I read some stuff about Loyalists and Seperatists or something like that and elites actually have green vehicles. Wouldn’t a green banshee or green ghost look so cool or even a green wraith.

I have found a thread that might help people understand: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=green+banshee+halo&view=detail&id=6E95A4ACA5668A193F44A35298972AA597E61DC6&first=0&FORM=IDFRIR

I guess that green Ghosts would almost count as stealth vehicles on grassy levels such as The Covenant. =D

It shows what they would have looked like if they were green.

Because it would have taking too long for them to do it, they only had time to spray-paint the phantoms

The Elites in Halo 3 never used Ghosts or other Covenant vehicles, IIRC.

The Covenant Separatists actually included Grunts, Hunters, and other Covenant species. However, Bungie chose to simplify gameplay and understanding of the story by only showing the Elites. I guess they did the same for vehicles; Phantoms are neutral, all else are evil.

I have to say that the green Wraith just looks awesome. =)

To be honest I hated the green Phantoms. I just accepted that they were there for easy identification when playing. I dont think that the Seperatists would have actually gone out and repainted all their vehicles green. But hey, thats just me.
