ODIN Orbital Kinetic Bombardment Weapon (point at the ground and shoot)

51 posts in this topic

After the failed ONDS Zokesian engineers decided to create a new orbital attack satellite. It had to be stylish,cool looking, practical, have at least 6 shots and have a docking node for servicing.

Here she is:

Shooting a payload:

Video by DarkenedMinecraft:

How to:

Shoot: Engage full throttle and stage.

Aim: pretty much point at a point on Kerbin and shoot.

You can shoot payloads how you want, you can either detach them and deorbit,

or point the hole ODIN and fire and disconnect at the same time aka "shoot".

This is what you will get:

You can get much steeper trajectories(up to 90 degrees).

LAUNCH(important):

Launch like anything else, only before launch click that probe body and select "Control from here"

Action groups:

1: Toggle panels

2: Toggle antennas

0: Decouples everything

Abort: ????????

The ODIN has its own engines and RCS, the staging is set up so payloads fire one at a time.

Don't forget to THROTTLE UP!

Yes I know! It's so annoying how some 1 guy can give a 1-star rating to any thread just because he is a troll.

This thing reminds me of the Command and Conquer: Tiberian Dawn Ion cannon somehow.

Now make sure to place it in an orbit which passes over your own country

That'll be a bit hard(considering Latvia is waaay North (56°)

I forgot to tell that if you aim at your current positive and negative azimuth( e.g. 90 deg), you can send a projectile at kerbin even if it is in the prograde area, though you must aim low. You can point prograde and pitch down to -80 deg. When shooting like that the reentry angle wont be that steep but the projectile will have quite a high velocity.

Agh.. Cod... It burns!!!

Good station though. :)

I am not into CoD, I'm a BF guy(btw on sale right now), anyway I built it not from love to CoD, please people stop downrating this because it is based on a CoD item. I just liked how it looked and partially recreated it in KSP.

Umm...Orbital Bombardment has been proposed for ages now. One of the most notable being Project Thor A.K.A "Rods from God".

It's not only a COD thing...it's only been sensationalized in popular media.

Some troll downrated this again >:(

Anyway I'm making a new kinetic bombardment satellite, perhaps with 8 rods this time around.

Why does this have only 3 stars?

Anyway it was always strange to me how in COD they placed those orbital weapons next to their control stations and the weapons never drifted away from it, weird.

I for one liked the story of codghosts. (No hate just saying that i liked it)

And this kinetic bombardment system, Great job!

Sorry if i'm accidentally Necro-Thread-Mancing? But i don't know if this is bad in the CoD Vs BF...But ima come out and say it. I LIKE EM BOTH.

You should make a new sattelite. Featuring 20 (If you can if not do 10) of the poles or whatever shoots out of the ODIN. Anyways your a great builder!
