Rocket Artillery Strike
The Rocket Artillery Strike is a satellite-guided rocket artillery strike on a straight line perpendicular to the direction the Mercenary was facing when the airstrike was called in.

It is a cheap but effective later game air strike that rains down rockets in very quick succession and destroys all but reinforced structures such as viaduct bridges and bunkers. It is the bigger and meaner brother of the conventional Artillery Strike. The satellite designation makes rocket artillery much more useful than the normal artillery strike because enemies can be targeted with a bird's eye view.

Although powerful, it is nowhere near as powerful as the Carpet Bomb offered by the Allies. Also, the Carpet Bomb is cheaper as well and the satellite minigame is much easier, making the Carpet Bomb superior in almost every way.

The Chinese use smaller Rocket Artillery Strikes against Allied Positions in Caracas and near the Allied Head Quarters during Missile Commando.

Four Venezuelan guarded Rocket Artillery Strike munitions can be found south and south-east of Universal Petroleum's Cabimas Outpost after Leave No Trace. They will stop spawning there after Tropical Island Getaway. Munitions for this air strike are rare, random and hard to find after that point.

This airstrike has the hardest minigame to call it in; it consists of three thin sections in a Y shape.
