Poor Man's Orbital Strike


The first 30 minutes of FKPK op night is usually complete lollery. Today I bring you the fruits of that labor - the PS2 Vanu Orbital Strike.

Reproduction Steps:
  1. Collect 12 mans.
  2. Give each man a Lasher.
  3. Stuff each man in a Galaxy.
  4. Take Galaxy to 350m off the deck.
  5. Eject every man.
  6. Wave Lashers in vague direction of ground and hold triggers.

If you have performed the steps correctly, 12 angry HAs will impact the ground at the exact same time as somewhere between 200 and 300 Lasher bolts.

Does it work?

Well, no. You can't aim straight down, target calling is tough, and even hitting the ground itself with an infantry weapon can be difficult when you're in jump state. Damage dealt will be minimal, and mostly to yourself.

Is it worth it?

Tune comms to local and you tell me.

Hmm... How about 4 gals full of HA's with decimators in diamond formation? Drop, BLAM and then you have the advantage of having infantry on the ground right after the "strike". Provided you aim and shoot fast on the way down as those rockets are slow. >_>

Of course, you might need multiple outfits with that many people. Results might be interesting though.

No, no... a poor man's OS is, hands down, about two Liberators and assorted fightercraft.

A poor man's OS is getting 4 gals and attemping to run over everything on the ground.

Or having 15 LA's slap C4 on the gal and have them set it off at the perfect moment...

I sometimes do my own one-man poor mans orbital strike by jumping out of an ESF and dropping some C4 on an enemy vehicle.
A little silly, but fun.

As for the idea with the lashers, i don't really think that's very practical.

It's not practical in any way shape or form. That was the point.

4 libs stringed together (if it were possible) or a tight diamond, with zephers. This would be the poor mans orbital strike. Actually it would work quite well. They just need thermals and coms and they could actually hit multiple targets.

Surprised no one has said the obvious answer which is Drop Pods.

Cause you would need a very compitent sl playing infil so the squad and deploy on him. But I have to say the lasher / lancer idea could be awesome.
