It's still SW universe vs Halo universe. We can't talk about the exact same thing for 11 pages, so I think it's just fine to talk about some s**t from Halo vs some s**t from SW.

You should see the arguments about Spartan Hoplites vs Urban Cohorts in Rome Total War.

I put my money on the Spartans though in that case.


I am the definition of your defeat.

No, I was just showing pics, rather than finding every totalwar.org thread that says either "OMFG SPARTANS ARE GODS!" or "ROMANS KILL EVERYTHING!"

In the end, Jedi would beat both Spartans and Republic Commandos. Yay!

And for your last comment... SURGE PROTECTERS! Heck lets face it, if you had to create a super soldiers armor, chances are it would have at least something to keep it from over loading.
Duh, a wookiee launcher can fire all their rockets at the same, time, while the UNSC rocket launcher fires one, then another after a time, then reloads. In addition, the surge protectors are there, it's just not for the shield. In the first book, Dr. Halsey explained that there is one in the armor.

Out of twenty-two spartans, four were killed, and six were wounded, just from the air drop. On the other hand, in Hard Contact, all four of the commandos survived, one hundred percent. I'm not sure if their armor is better, or they just have better freefall techniques, either way, the commandos outperformed the spartans in this senario, and either aspect would prove to be a major factor in combat. (Shield or Technique)
If you weren't reading the book correctly, the Spartans were dropping from a higher altitude with out parachutes, at like 40,000 feet? And the commandos were dropping from, about 300 feet, with a parachute? You can't exactly compare those, can you?

Don't forget the ribbon charges, the 500-grades, and the implosion devices. Scorch would probably set the Implosion devices on every single millimeter of the ground and melt the whole place. Even Mereel (N-7) would say Kandosii (classy). Not only that, the Deltas can also call in orbital bombardment from Republic Assault Ships or Attack Cruisers, so yeah, the commandos will win.

Yup, it was in pg 57-58 (read it yourself because all the side effects and normal effects are way to long to write).

If a Commando has to call in a giant ship to take out a Spartan, it's obvious who the better soldier is

No, both Spartans and Commandoes work in groups of 4, and if you group all the commandoes and spartans up, there are only 30 available spartans and about 1000 commandoes, so you're not really making a point there...
