What is victory? Is it to defeat your enemy on the field of battle? Is it to simply repulse his armies and slay his misguided warriors? No, this is only the beginning!
True victory is to crush your foe utterly, to shatter his armoured legions and run down his fleeing troops as they scatter. Pursue them to their lairs and burn them out. Burst into his unholy temples, smash down his icons and topple his foul idols. Burn his heretical works and leave no stone upon stone. Slaughter his followers, their families and their livestock lest any of their taint remain. And when that is done, put the ruins to the torch.
is the meaning of victory.
I have at my command an entire battle group of the Imperial Guard. Fifty regiments, including specialized drop troops, stealthers, mechanized formations, armored companies, combat engineers and mobile artillery. Over half a million fighting men and thirty thousand tanks and artillery pieces are mine to command. Emperor show mercy to the fool that stands against me, for I shall not.

"AK-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfucker in the
room, accept no substitutes."
Eighth Fleet had deployed almost eight thousand pods. Those pods launched 69,984 missiles. Of that total, 7,776 were Apollo birds. Another 8,000 were electronic warfare platforms. Which meant that 54,208 carried laser heads - laser heads which homed on Genevieve Chin's ships with murderously accurate targeting.
Fifth Fleet's missile defenses did their best.
Their best was not good enough.
Fifth Fleet stopped almost thirty percent of them, which was a truly miraculous total, under the circumstances. But over thirty-seven thousand got through.
It was, she decided coldly, a case of overkill.
Sgt. Zim: If you wanted to teach a baby a lesson, would you cut its head off?
Ted Hendrick: Why... no sir!
Of course not. You'd paddle it. There can be circumstances when it's just as foolish to hit an enemy city with an H-bomb
as it would be to spank a baby with an ax.
"A little collateral damage, but what the heck?"
Dalton: Uh, yes, but... The Order of Taraka, I mean... isn't that overkill?
No, I think it's just enough kill.
Dr. Wilson: George, if you were making a dinner and wanted to kill a fly, what would you use?
George Green: Probably a flyswatter or some spray.
Dr. Wilson: And what would be "overkill?"
George Green: Probably a mallet.
Dr. Wilson: And what would be "extreme overkill?"
George Green: Probably a sledge hammer.
What Dr. Sign did goes way beyond "extreme overkill." It was the equivalent of using nuclear weapons to get rid of flies.

Lordgenome: Be careful. The enemy is using a random Schrödinger warp to approach.
Dayakka: I'm begging you, say that in layman's terms!
Lordgenome: The Multiple Dimension probability fluctuation is controlled by them. While shifting through Space-Time, they will approach and attack.
Dayakka: Like I said, I don't understand!
Attenborough: It doesn't matter! Let's beat the crap out of them!
Lordgenome: Understood. Prepare for simultaneous decimation of all the weak points in responsive Space-Time. We will trace down the enemies.
Dayakka: The Time-Range is expanding?
Lordgenome: Calculating Space-Time for possibility of enemy existence.

Don't worry about it, just go ahead and lock onto them. It just means we can shoot randomly
and it'll still hit them!

1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.
7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
10. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
"I'm going to kill you so much."
Cain: "Says here that Penlan accidentally shot a Traitor Marine," I said, waving the dataslate in his general direction. "Lustig shot it in the face with a bolter. Six times, according to this."
Jurgen: "Only six?"
: "He would have gone on, but apparently he ran out of face."
Another (nuke) targets the city itself: high-energy x-rays are absorbed by nearby atoms, then emitted with less energy to be absorbed again and so on and so on, creating an expanding sphere of nearly-uniform high-temperature air, which is ultimately responsible for the blast wave that contains the majority of the damage. While close to the bomb, the temperature is magnitudes above that of the surface of the sun; there's not much thermal energy far from the blast point, but because the blast destroys things, buildings and the like are reduced to kindling that can be easily ignited, leading to gigantic firestorms. Various forms of radiation are released: the aforementioned gamma rays, and also high-energy neutrons, with other kinds released but inconsequential until the fallout takes place. Any three can kill in small amounts. These are all being done in overkill so excessive, it'd be funny if it wasn't so sad: this is like killing a daddy long-legs with a stick of dynamite.
"After that, I went around the warehouse and methodically put another half-dozen rounds into the head of each and every fallen <Fomor>. And I used a can of paint thinner I found in a corner to set their master on fire, just to be sure. There’s no such thing as overkill."

This "overwatch" of yours obviously got its "over" from "overkill". Ennesby:
"Overkill" wasn't using it, since there's no such thing.
That's why I love hanging out with you guys. Why shoot something once, when you can shoot it 46 more times?
We attacked Japanese company positions with brigades fully supported by artillery and aircraft, platoon posts by battalions. Once when I was studying the plan for an operation of this kind submitted by the local commander, a visiting staff officer of high rank said, 'Isn't that using a steam hammer to crack a walnut?"
"Well", I answered, "if you happen to have a steam hammer handy and you don't mind if there´s nothing left of the walnut, it's not a bad way to crack it."
