ForumName of Machines and Synths?

{{Forumtop}}


The names of Combine machines and Synths may not be what they are called by Rebels. I believe that names such as Striders, Gunships, Manhacks, Hopper Mines, Rollermines, Hunters, etc. are simply names that Rebels use. A Combine machine known as the Manhack, are referred to as Viscerator by the Combine. Also, Combine Sentry Guns are referred to as  Sterilizers by the Combine. Currently, the real names of these war machines are unknown. --UserCryoKnight|CryoKnight 2210, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
Please, sign your comments. And you are right, we don't know these Combine names... UserKlow|Klow 0837, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
The names the Combine soldiers use may not be the true names either because the true names of them may not be possible for humans to hear and/or reproduce, like the Vortiguant's "flux shifting". This theory is supported by the fact that the Combine Soldiers often use medical terms meaning that they are just using them as English replacements.

And we are also humans, so we are like the rebels, and so we do use those names too p --'''UserJorre22225|JorreUser talkJorre22225|22225''' 1445, July 31, 2010 (UTC)
