CNCKW Orbital Strike Cameo

The orbital strike capability allows GDI Commanders to provide orbital fire support for their ground forces using the Thor's Hammer orbital attack satellites loaded with Mjolnir kinetic harpoons[1]. This technology is an old concept called Rods from God, dating back from the late 20th century.

Instead of ionized beams, the strike uses a kinetic kill vehicle (called an orbital slug, and usually a mixture of cobalt and tungsten) to inflict significant damage in an area. Basically, a giant rod is fired from orbit onto a target. When it impacts, the kinetic energy of the rod releases heat and energy, damaging the target. A warhead would be redundant for such a weapon.
