The M12S Civilian Sport Transport, more commonly known as the M12S Warthog CST or 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST, is a United Nations Space Command ground vehicle. It is a derivative of the M12B Force Application Vehicle introduced in Halo 5: Guardians, which in turn is a derivative of the M12 Warthog. It appears in the open-world racing game Forza Horizon 3, which was released in September 2016.

Forza Horizon 3 Edit

The M12S Civilian Sport Transport was added to the Forza Horizon 3 garages of players who played either Halo 5: Guardians or Halo: The Master Chief Collection between September 6, 2016 and September 23, 2016 and redeemed a code received via a message from Xbox Live.[1] Players were also able to obtain the M12S Warthog CST in four Forzathon events: in October 2016 (The Halo Weekender),[2] February 2017 (Who Wants Seconds?),[3] January 2018 (Hot and Heavy Horizon),[4] and March 2018.[5]

It is also obtainable in the Auction House.[citation needed]

The M12S Warthog CST's default Performance Index of 800 places it at the top of Class A, with a Speed rating of 4.3, a Handling rating of 7.9, an Acceleration rating of 8.5, a Launch rating of 10, and a Braking rating of 8.5.

Changes from the M12B Warthog Edit

  • Size has been reduced by 33% and speed has been increased by 50%.[1]
  • A customizable license plate can be mounted on the rear.
  • No weaponry can be mounted.
  • Rear-wheel steering has been removed in order to provide more stability at high speeds.
  • The 12 liter hydrogen-injected internal combustion engine has been replaced by a twin-turbocharged 8 liter V8 engine that produces 720 hp (537 kW; 730 PS) and 855 ft·lb (1,160 N·m) of torque.

Gameplay Edit

Advantages Edit

  • Accelerates off the line rather quickly without any wheelspin (owing to its Launch rating of 10, which is achieved with all-wheel drive), reaching 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.8 seconds.
  • Sharp, responsive handling and high maneuverability.
  • As an Extreme Offroad vehicle, can travel through rough terrain easily, like with the original M12B Warthog, making the M12S Warthog CST suitable for offroad events and driving.

Disadvantages Edit

  • Has the lowest top speed out of all Extreme Offroad vehicles, with only 119 mph (192 km/h), which makes the M12S Warthog CST more suitable for tracks where high speed is not a priority (e.g. Redstone Mine Scramble).
  • Is extremely limited in terms of upgrade options offered. Only upgrades to the tires and rims and a drivetrain conversion to rear-wheel drive are available, resulting in the M12S Warthog CST being only upgradable to the bottom of S1 Class, unlike most other offroad-oriented vehicles in the game, which can easily reach the top of or even exceed S1 Class.
