Lore Question

The Official Spartan Field Manual says that Spartan-IVs have been active since 2550. That being said, where were Palmer and the rest of class 1 during Reach-H3? Or as tuhin94 said, is it a typo?

Likely on small operations testing out the new tech.

I wonder if that may be a typo. I don’t think the first class was active until early 2553. So they’d still be active during the war but not far from the end like 2550. I believe Palmer was still an ODST in 2550.

That’s a good point. I’ll edit the post with that question too.

I think that is referring to the first class that had special augmentations that would not require them to wear Mjolnir. This was the class with Ilsa Zane, who went insane from the augmentations. The other candidates all died. Palmer was in the class after that, which went back to less aggressive augmentations that still required Mjolnir.

Pretty sure it refers to Zanes class as mentioned above
