I’m not sure if this has been posted before but. I was browsing the Halo Wiki and decided to look at the MJONIR page. I wanted to see if there was a Mark VII. Well.
> MJOLNIR Mark VII Powered Assault ArmorThe MJOLNIR MK VII was an armor system mentioned by Dr. Halsey in her personal journal. It would appear to be the last planned phase of the MJOLNIR project. At the time the MJOLNIR project began, Halsey had planned on the MK VII suit featuring the following upgrades:Next-gen fusion-plasma hybrid power system.Atmospheric insertion systems.Slipspace de-insertion capability.Active AI transfer protocols.Limited shaping of the energy shield (partial overlaps, airfoils etc.).Atmospheric insertion would allow a Spartan to free-fall from space without a reentry vehicle such as the ODST’sSOEIV, but would most likely require a drag chute or parachute. Note that reentry in MJOLNIR armor has been done several times in Halo fiction but is most likely outside both the Mark V and Mark VI design specs and has proven fatal. It can be concluded that the Mark VII’s systems never entered the testing phase and, after the Fall of Reach, no further work was done on the project.
Does this make sense? Or no…?
