Topic: question about the sentinels

I have a question about the sentinels, if the halos were a builder caste project and the shield worlds were the Didacts project. And the sentinels on onyx were far superior to any we see on the rings, is the explanation that the sentinels on the shield worlds were military grade whereas the ones on the rings were builder security force sentinels.. just a question i was thinking about because of the massive difference in there performances.

I've only dealt lightly with the sentinels, so I'll leave this question to the true experts!

I'd believe so Ben, although remember the Halo rings which we know in the game are different to those first proposed by Faber, they are smaller and have a much shorter range. I'd hazard that Faber didn't want to involve warrior servants in the security of the Halo rings, so I'd agree with your conclusion that the sentinels on Halo are builder security, considering those on onyx were of a different design than those on Halo also.
