Alright, so with the introduction of Skirmishers in Reach, it's been pretty much confirmed that there are subspecies of Jackals. Which makes sense since they have colonies on the various other moons around Eayn. However on Waypoint it says: [quote][u]Easily the most common among the current Kig-Yar population[/u], Storm Jackals represent the tip of the spear of the Covenant military body. Despite being lightly armored, this role is equipped with personal energy shields which provide resilient yet versatile cover whenever needed. Storm Jackals, as indicated by their name, are generally deployed in 'storm' or assault formations alongside other troops, though they can be splintered off into groups for other specialized roles.[/quote] If "Storm" Jackals are the most common of the population, why didn't the Covenant use them for canon fodder like the Grunts? Why were their less common brethren used? Is there a canon reason for this, or did 343i just mess up?
