Orbital Ion Cannon

When you need to call down the thunder to deal with those pesky biters, launch a rocket with an ion cannon into orbit and show the bugs who's boss.

Do you have a large, late-game megabase and wish there were more cool things you could build? Do you wish you could do more with the rockets you launch than just increment a single number? Do you really hate biters? If so, then this mod is for you!
Build a giant ion cannon and launch it into orbit with a rocket, wait for it to charge up, and then you're ready to call down the thunder on those pesky aliens.
Simply click anywhere with your targeting device and watch the total annihilation ensue. Just be sure not to call it down too close to your position, or you could end up caught in the blast zone.
If you've played the Command & Conquer series of games, you're bound to recognize several features similar to the GDI's Ion Cannons.
