who do you think would win in a straight up fight? the spartan 2's (AKA Master Chief) from Halo, or the Alpha or Null Arcs from star wars?
[COLOR="Blue"]Acr vs. Sparta 2 = Acrs win (Better tactics)[/COLOR] [COLOR="SeaGreen"]Acr vs. Master Chief = Master chief wins (better fighting skills)[/COLOR] [COLOR="Blue"]Null vs. Master Chief = Nulls win (It would be close but the nulls have better fighting skills)[/COLOR] [COLOR="SeaGreen"]Null vs. Sparta 2 = Sparta 2 win (they have better fighting strategies)[/COLOR]
[COLOR="Red"]So if you take the best tactical soldiers (arc) breed to fight and add some of the best all around fighters (nulls) they would beat (but not by much) the Sparta 2s and master chief.[/COLOR]
well...it's almost impossible to compare...
lets look over the facts. both forces are elite special ops units, with probably fewer than a thousand on each side. Spartans are physically augmented to the point where they can lift a tank and flip it over. that comes in handy for close combat. Null Arcs have perfect recall, so that is extremely valuable in combat, knowing the exact point on an enemy to stike an incapacitatin blow. Spartans have shields, and Arcs don't. Arcs counter this by using plasma weaponry from star wars. if this was translated into Halo, plasma is great for taking down shields. Spartans usually use bullet based weaponry, and in star wars its almost impossible to puncture armor with slugthrowers. An exception to this would be if the spartan was using a spartan laser, which would fry an arc with one blast. thats a pretty close match up. One on one, a spartan and an alpha arc are evenly matched, i'd say one on one, MC and a Null Arc are evenly matched. both are lone wolf soldiers, but if the Nulls worked together, i'd think theyd pulverize Master Chief. Still, these match-ups would come pretty close, i'd say that victory would only go to whoever got the drop on their opponent ON a side note, it would probably be good to mention that i think that republic commandos would be a good match-up against ODST troops
Wrong section. Should be in the Death Star Forum.
Considering that Spartan II's were basicly Space Marines from WH:40K.... (By Space Marines, I mean neophyte scouts who were about to made into full fledged Sphess Marines)
I'm sorry, it's like with that old Republic Commandos versus Spartans thread. (Spartans as in the Master Chief)
Spartan IIs win.
Soldiers selected at birth, receiving years of genetic augmentations from child-hood to when they are first deployed (same rate of growth as a normal human) whilst undergoing rigorous spec-ops training. Combined with half-ton suits of armour that are capable of surviving a 2Km (almost 1.25 miles) drop from the air and have built in regenerative particle shields to compliment the suit's armour.
Basicly, a single Spartan II is the equivelant of a single Republic Commando squad.
ARC Trooper squads are usually in greater numbers than their Commando counterparts, and specialise in heavy weapons. For an ARC Squad (generic squad of ARCs) they'd have to outnumber a squad of Spartan's by a minimum of two-to-one. Even then, the ARCs would receive the proportion of losses, so it wouldn't exactly be a straight forward victory for them.
However, if it were a case of equal numbers...... Those ARCs would have no choice but to call in as many reinforcements as were available.
They are incomparable...No connection I think...lol
i agree with Fyurii if there were even numbers the Saprtans would win

I can imagine. Spartan units are empowered like no other. My vote goes to Master Chief and the Spartan units.

well, if it came down to weaponry, the clones would win. plasma based weaponry is deadly to spartan shields. the clones could just pick them off from afar. if it came to closed quarters combat, the spartans would win by sheer strength. and fyurii, there are a lot more Republic commandos than arc troopers. Arc troopers operate like lone wolf operatives and as strike teams. Clone commandos are the next best thing to an arc. Theres an order of battle i read somewhere. "If you want a job done, send 100 clones, 1 arc trooper, or 4 clone commandos. I also believe that the Grand Army could demolish the UNSC, they simply have better training, weaponry, and support vehicle. spartan 3s from Ghosts of Onyx might be a better match-up against Republic commandos.

I never said that there were more ARCs than Commandos, just that they operate in larger squad sizes.
Afaik, the "lone wolf" operations part is something for special circumstances only.
