The year is now 2037. The Tiberian World now stands with a very uncertain fate. The two most powerful and influential forces on the planet are trapped in a never ending dead lock of war and combat. Whilst the Global Defense Initiative has suffered many blows and military defeats, the faction itself still stands strong and has shown the world its amazing ability to endure harsh punishments and has recovered much lost ground. The Brotherhood of Nod has struggled and triumphed over its enemies, only for its victory to be short lived by the death of Kane the Messiah, causing an ever lasting deterioration through the Brotherhood and leading to defeats and chaos amongst the large faction. With the end of the First Tiberian War comes the dawn and age of a new, second Tiberian War, with new terrifying possibilities and potential. The fate of Earth lies dangerously unknown.

So I take it a dropship strike ability via a captured GT communications facility of some sort is still impossible and out of the question?

Thought it's still the case.
What a shame.

Actually, with some creative coding, one might be able to turn the Drop Pod support power (currently unused) into a Dropship reinforcement power. However, the current limitations make it unprofitable: 1. Only infantry can arrive via the Dropship, 2. The Dropship won't take off after dropping the reinforcements. This could be emulated via an animation, but the transition would propably look ugly. 3. AFAIK only a few infantry units can arrive via single Dropship. If you add more, the Dropships will arrive at adjacent cells, causing them to horrificly overlap.

In short - not worth it

Well surely you could have it with a combination of a droppod support power with no animations that simply created an invisible unit (or a ground marker, like in C&C Generals) and a trigger that dropped off units whenever it found any of that type of invisible/marker unit on the map (every x seconds to make sure it didn't run again while reinforcements were en-route) at the position of the invisible/marker unit, then killed it.

Description

The perfect example of the possibilities GloboTech have unlocked, Orca Dropships allow the delivery of crucial supplies and reinforcements to specific areas on the battlefield. The arrival of a dropship with reinforcements during a heated battle can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Dropships are only available in certain solo play missions and can never be directly controlled.
