Today's Update is purely about Orcas, showing off practically all the GDI Aircraft.
Firstly there is the Orca Gunship:
Description: After the Second Tiberian War, GDI command realized they need a versatile, agile and deadly aircraft to take the place of the by the time already antiquated Orca Fighter. The result is the Mark III Orca Gunship, the first a new series of Orcas. Tests have shown tremendous firepower against ground targets, but it was vulnerable against hostile air-air capable aircraft, such as Nod's Banshee. Since this could not be solved without sacrificing some of the firepower, the Mark V Orca Fighter was created.
And here is the Orca Fighter:
Description: The Mark V is meant to be a complement to the Mark IV, adding Anti-Air firepower to the new set of Orcas. The Mark V is a lot more agile than the Gunship, but has strong Anti-Air capabilities with its 6 Air-Air guided missiles it can hit hard on hostile aircraft. Additionally it can be upgraded with two additional missiles, adding even more to its deadliness. But be aware, the Fighter has near to no armor, and is vulnerable to AAA fire.
Thirdly, the Orca Bomber.
Description: Designated as Mark VI, the Orca Bomber represents the latest addition to the Orca series. It also represents the slow-poke of all the Orcas, due to its heavy armor it cannot move fast, also can only attack ground targets. It is specially effective against buildings or slow ground targets, for the bombs only have limited tracking capability, although a very large area of effect, being fuel air bombs. Instantly kills infantry, deals heavy damage to buildings and vehicles.
Fourth, the Orca Dropship, also known as V-42 Air Freighter.
Description: The V-42 is the GDI's heavy lift aircraft. It can carry around several heavy units, in fact, it is used to bring the Mammoth MKII onto the battlefield. It is the old Dropship's replacement, it is smaller, faster, not as vulnerable to Ion Storms, and has a 50% bigger cargo capacity, and has seen nearly every single major GDI Operation since its introduction in 2038.
And last but not least, the Carryall.
Description: A modified version of the V-42, the V-42 CA "Carryall" is slighly smaller, even faster, and heavier armored than the Dropship. It can carry most GDI ground units, beside the Mammoth MKII. Some people compare the Dropship and Carryall with Buses and Taxis, whereas the Carryall would be the Taxi and the Dropship the Bus, for the simple reason that the Carryall is used directly on the battlefield while the Dropship only carries units behind the frontlines.
That would be it for today, stay tuned for the next update ;)
