An Orbital Strike is a bombardment from outer space, by ships, to a planet. Orbital Strikes usually precede an invasion by Space Marine Chapters, Imperial Guard Regiments, or task forces of one of the Chamber Militant of the Inquisition. Orbital Strikes can also be used to soften, or destroy a specific target, but the targeting computers on board the ship usually are not as precise as to be able to allow this.[1]
