The M700 Viper tank was a cut vehicle from Halo: Combat Evolved, which will eventually make its way into the Master Chief Collection.

Alex Wakeford, a writer on the Community Team at 343 Industries, helmed the piece which details the history leading up to Halo: Combat Evolves release.

The piece first detailed weapons that the development team scrapped for the first game, including the Spectre, the JOV-99 Kestrel, and the Überchassis H2C.

Wakeford gives each of the scrapped vehicles bits of official lore. For example, the CMA originally commissioned the JOV-99 Kestrel for battle use, but after the dissolution of the CMA, the Misriah Armory lobbied for the Wasp to effectively replace it.
