In a jungle, an army of Covenant soldiers (Halo) have been attacked by a force of Akrid beasts (Lost Planet)

This battle see's for the Covenant

75 Grunts, 50 Drones, 40 Jackals, 12 Elites. 10 Brutes, 5 Hunters

They have acess to any of their various guns. As well as 10 Ghosts, 3 Wraiths, 1 Scarab, and 1 Destroyer


On the side with numerical superiority but less technology are the Akrid they bring in

100 Trillid, 100 Bolsepia, 60 Sepia, 30 Vodogg, 30 Chryatis, 10 Gorechryatis, 10 Dongo, and for heavy support Akrid X, and two Undeep Akrid

Rules are fairly simple here. it's a battle to the death. However the Destroyer is not allowed to fly up and nuke everything. So for the battle the Destroyer is restricted to being within range of the Akrid to strike at, but within enough room for it to fire on them as well.

Grunts do their job, which is to draw attention and die.

Drones and jackals are going to give the Acrid a lot of trouble with the combination of mobility and sharp shooting weak spots.

Elites will do far better than any human did against them, and humans of course have been pretty successful. so... yeah.

I'm gonna side with the Covenant these things were harmed by bullets and such, granted they had weak spots, and if they could find them the Covenant can as well. However, this will be a tough fight though.

Akrid are mostly big bug looking things from the game series lost planet. The larger ones, and they get to be very large in some cases, usually have a color coded weak spot that must be fired upon to cause damage, but otherwise they are pretty much big aggressive wild life. Not an army or anything.
