Once a space command uplink has been constructed, GDI commanders can call down a series of highly destructive slugs to be launched from an orbital platform. The target is painted using a laser designator before 15 slugs are fired at the target location.
Orbital strikes are effective against structures, though the laser beam before the volley means that vehicles usually have enough time to get away from the target area. Therefore, this ability is best used with shockwave artillery, which can disable the target vehicles and leave them helpless against the orbital strike.
