I know that you will all hate me for this. Hell, I’m mad at the truth myself. But let’s face it, every remaining Spartan-II and Spartan-III is obsolete. Unnecessary. Pointless.
Why you ask? Let’s see. Someone once said that if Blue Team, Noble Team and Fireteam Majestic got in a fight, that Majestic would lose easily.
I’m not convinced. Yes, they lack skill. They lack as much experience and training. But they have superior technology and weapons. That’s almost a guaranteed victory in EVERY WAR.
Think about it guys and girls. Spartan-IV’s are not children kidnapped or forced into service. They are willing adults. Just about anyone can sign up, no fear of defects from augmentation. They get superior firepower, equipment, armor, etc. Spartan-II’s and Spartan-III’s would have done ANYTHING to have the advances in battle that the IV’s have. They are brought to light to the public, hell they ARE the poster children of the UNSC. No one cares about the older models of Spartans. These are men and women who will go into battle and most of the time come back home to see their families. No one has to immediately sacrifice their lives for the survival of humanity without hesitation. Because of the Spartan-IV’s things are finally getting back to normal.
I agree, it’s incredibly unfair that after all those soldiers went through, their families taken, their lives changed forever, everything they could have had gone forever, and now they are obsolete. It really sucks. It’s just no right that now they almost have no place in this universe. I mean, why would ONI or the UNSC need a breed of super soldiers that are almost extinct when the better and more reliable models are right here?
John, Linda, Kelly, Fred, Naomi, Lucy, Tom, Ash, Mark, Olivia - where do they go now? What are they supposed to do? It just feels like all their sacrifices got them nothing in return because they’ve been replaced.
Halsey was right. They wanted to replace Master Chief. And the saddest part about that…they succeeded.
