The Orca Strike Craft is a tactical bomber appearing in Tiberium Wars.

Background

The Orca has oversized supercharged engines on articulated mounts and a modified pilot cockpit. They cannot be constructed on the battlefield directly and are called in to perform a tactical strike. The Orca is very fast and has surprisingly high armour, compared to the Orca Gunship.

It has 2 rocket pods mounted on both sides just under the cockpit which do moderate damage against buildings and light damage against vehicles. It will also kill infantry with 1 hit. ZOCOM uses a modified version of this aircraft, which use sonic grenades instead of rockets.

In-game

If an airfield is built, a commander can request an Orca Strike for $500. Three Orca Strike Craft fly in from outside the combat zone, bomb the selected area, and then fly off again. The Orca Strike is only capable of damaging stationary targets, and a beacon, deployed in the area to guide the pilots, can reveal to the enemy the bombing target.

In Skirmish modes GDI AI's use this strike on opposing teams Power Plants, although this will not destroy one outright it will cause significant damage.

Behind the scenes

  • An Orca Strike Craft was seen along with a group of Orca Gunships defending the outskirts of Sydney during the initial Scrin invasion.
  • In the worldbuilder, the Orca strike craft is actually called, "The Mini Orca". The Orca Strike Craft also has a striking similarity in appearance to the Orca from the First Tiberium War.
