            this was realised by anyone with half a brain in fricking 1945 when the chinese defeated the japanese with a mix of asymmetric and organised warfare

              lmao wrong, combined arms is dead for PEER opponents, it kind of works for asymetric. When both sides have BMs and cruise missiles that can strike ships and airfields outside of the range of the latter's ability to respond, you throw combined arms out the window.

              Thats exactly what happened in Ukraine, the Ukrainians took out the Russian ships and airfields in range. The Russians took out the Ukrainian ships and airfields in range. Whats left? Army, dug in. Special forces. Emerging technologies. Influence warfare.

    Gauss weaponry is still in experimental stage, physics and current mechanical technology can't allow for a mobility akin to halo, the best you can get is something similar to a jeep with a recoiless rifle, but the benefit in speed can't compensate the lose in terrain mobility as survivability, besides you will have to train operators specifically to maximize the effect, which means you are dragging already stretched personnel from another vital roles.

    Warthogs are not actually designed to be driven by non-power armored humans. Yes, regular marines CAN drive them, but Warthogs were not really designed for that. Warthogs were designed exclusively for Spartans. That's why they aren't equipped with armored doors and their cabins are fully exposed, its to make it easier for Spartans in heavy armor to climb in and out of. Otherwise they're way too exposed for general troop transport.

        Halos lore prior to the Covenant invasion is kinda moronic. The official reason the Assault Rifle is chambered in 7.62 NATO, a caliber from the 20th century, for example, is because apparently humans acheived world peace and had no need to develop new calibers before aliens showed up.

            I wish we got the Bungie lore where Humans were in fact the Forerunners, New insurrectionist movements would become a problem again, Human - Xeno mercenary bands springing up causing chaos because frick it why not (would be cool to see a "covie" Human enemy decked out in Elite style armor), and people slowly relearning that the original purpose of the Spartans was to commit efficient genocides in colony worlds who would question why they were paying heavy taxes to a tyrant thousands of lightyears away. We could've even have gotten a continuation series where the mystery of the Flood origins emanating from the Precursors could've been the focal point with Covie cells still existing to combat you along the way. Would've been a hell of a lot better than what we've gotten so far with 343.

            Not only has technology matured in this regard by the time of 2552, but even if you were to develop a new round, you're talking about replacing hundreds of millions to even billions of rifles and ammo stockpiles just for a small change. Technology at this point would be more comparable to something like swords in the middle ages; you can have some variation here and there, but there isn't going to be anything game changing for centuries - hence why things like the Warthog have been in service for literally centuries by the time of the Human Covenant war.
