It's ******* awesome!
It's just a shame that I UNSC Spartan could more than easily take out an entire army of Greek Spartans.

Let's have the UNSC ones take off their armor and fight with the Greek's weapons. UNSC should still win due to genetic enhancements, however it would be a much more even fight. And it would be glorious!!!

i must disagree. ancient Spartans had superior battle skills and instincts. surely it would not be a fast or easy fight, but hand to hand, i'd have to say the ancient would have the advantage. just out of sheer reflex power.

I'm not so sure about that.
The UNSC Spartans were kidnapped at the age of 7 (I think it was 7. Not in the mood to check.) and trained for battle every single day since then. They also had very good school, and they learned a hell of a lot about the Greek Spartans, including tactics.

Plus they were genetically enhanced. If I remember correctly (not looking this up): unbreakable bones, enhanced speed, enhanced reflexes, enhanced vision, enhanced hearing, among some other things

what i speak of is raw natural instinct, taught by rod and lash and not by enhancements or books. ancient Spartans as children had lived their fights and deaths out a thousand times before they even happen. you cannot under estimate the power of natural ability. they were breed to fight. they were made to live even they were already dead. the the unsc Spartans may have had books to tell them these things and training to simulate it. but had never put their life on the line every waking moment before a time of war.

Actually....their training was probably just as ******** as the Greeks. We don't know everything about their training.
They actually took all of them out into the wild and left them alone. The first one to get to the Pelican drop ship got to go home. Touch **** for everyone else. Not only that, but they had men patrolling the area. If I remember right, they were armed. They were still children at the time.

Now I can't say that they put their lives on the line every single day. I don't know that. What I do know is that these guys training was incredibly badass. John (the Master Chief) took out 3 ODSTs at the same time (everyone unarmed and no armor). He wasn't even done training yet.

sounds like they may have actually taken a chapter from the agurgi. (not sure that's how you spell it) but they did have a safe haven in the pelican. my point being that their training was of blood and one. cast out from their people to come back a champion, or don't come back all. your knowledge is quite impressive. as epic as this battle would be, it could never happen. unsc Spartans have never existed. but theoretically it would be AWESOME.
User avatar #9 to #8 - xxDestinyxx (04/18/2010) [-]
Probably the biggest thing about that story with the Pelican is that John found a loophole in the commander's mission specs so no one suffered.
And that's a big thing about the UNSC Spartans. They didn't have their people. They had each other. Kidnapped around the age of seven and bred for war, they were a family who fought together and for each other, as much as they fought for the UNSC. Even the ones who were permanently disabled as a result of the augmentations still served their part.

Your knowledge is impressive as well. I try to learn as much as possible about the old Spartans too (ancient history ftw). And who knows, they may exist someday. After all, Halo is 500 years from now.
If only I could see this fight...if only.

I really hoped that I remembered everything correctly. I don't want to have to stick my foot in my mouth.
In any case, I'd definitely suggest Halo: The Fall of Reach as a book to read. It's where I learned about the UNSC Spartans education and training and pretty much everything up to the first game. It's very enjoyable, and there are a few people I know that know nothing about Halo and they would probably like the book as well.
