What is this? Humans are the ones fighting Emile? oO
Well, they SHOULD know that they need something with more Firepower than average Machine Gun's to take out a Spartan with Energyshield-Armor... And you can't fight him in Close Combat because he was druged and operated into a Superhuman

I was imagining these local insurrectionists were using recovered/stolen equipment cobbled together for their use, so I was definitely trying to design some armor that was reminiscent of what we've seen the UNSC use.
