The M258 Giraffe is a UNSC mobile Gun platform.
The M258 Giraffe was first made in early 2553, shortly after the end of the Human-Covenant War.It was first used in the Syphodyte Campaign in the defense of Machros. Primarily an artillery unit and 'building buster', it was highly successful throughout the campaign. It makes use of Covenant Anti-Gravity technology, allowing it to hover up to several meters off the ground, and also allows it to dodge incoming fire much easier. The main weapons are the dual Heavy Cannons, which fire a variety of different types of rounds up to 3 kilometers away. It also has two missile pods, allowing a barrage of Scorpion Anti-Tank Missiles, which can devastate the most heavily armored of tanks. Finally, it has two forward mounted 50mm rotary cannons, which can easily slice through any infantry soldier's armor, and the armor of light tanks.
