The Orca Dropship is GDI's biggest transport aircraft, capable of transporting large numbers of units and mechs.

Tiberian SunEdit

During the Second Tiberium War, the Dropships were used mainly to bring reinforcements to the front. However, it suffered from Ion Storms and many Dropships crashed because of them.

Tiberium EssenceEdit

Its main purpose in TE is to bring in the Epic Mammoth Mk.II to the Orbital Deployment Center, because it is the only thing capable of carrying such a large walker. A smaller variant of the Dropship is used to bring in units purchased from the Tacitus Archive.

In Version 1.4, the Orca Dropship was also used to bring in immediate but costly reinforcements to the Orbital Deployment Center.
