-> Then there are the airstrikes. Mercenaries 2 has a massive enthusiasm for airstrikes. They feature prominently in their tutorial, you find them lying innocently by the side of the road next to signs saying, "Boy I hope no one steals me (wink wink)". And every time you die in a mission, the game throws up tips that are usually along the lines of, "See, if you had listened to us and used an airstrike, maybe this wouldn't have happened!"

->''The explosives rained down, and halfway through their fall, the twenty-four plummeting cluster bombs came apart, each deploying twenty-five self-propelled ground-strike munitions. Each bomb had been pre-programmed by a Gabriel using data provided by the EVA wielded by Commander Karrde, using laser targeting telemetry supplied by the individual Caprica teams. It was an example of networked, coordinated warfare at its finest.''

->''Each bomb found a target, and accelerated toward the Nod soldiers even as the militia below looked up at the screaming sonic passage of the Firehawks. The smarter or more experienced ones were already yelling for cover, and diving behind whatever safety they could find.''

->''Six hundred individually-guided cluster munitions detonated a heartbeat later. Half of the bombs were loaded with high-explosive warheads, the complex devices within each detonating with the force of two tons of TNT. The other half of the munitions were loaded with white phosphorous.''

->''It was like God took a bucket of hell, pissed in it, and then poured it on the men below.''

->They stood in the mouth of the cave and watched them. The bombers were high now, in fast ugly arrowheads beating the sky apart with the noise of their motors. "They are shaped like sharks," Robert Jordan thought. "The wide-finned, sharp-nosed sharks of the Gulf Stream. But these, wide-finned and silver, roaring, the light mist of their propellers in the sun, these do not move like sharks. They move like no thing there has ever been. They move like mechanized doom."
