Charges consumed by Landing Craft Air Support.

—In-Game Description

Air Support Charges are a Gear item that calls in support from the player's Landing Craft. They were introduced in Update 17.5 (2015-10-01).

The blueprint is automatically available in the Foundry and will craft 10 Charges, but players must possess a Landing Craft Foundry Segment before they can build Air Support Charges.

When used, Air Support Charges will throw a floating ball onto the ground held up by an electric tether. The Air Support ability will then be deployed after a delay of a few seconds. Air Support Charges have a 10-minute cooldown (5 minutes with Intrinsics Engineering Rank 2) in between uses, with a cooldown timer visible on the Gear wheel menu. Players may only bring 200 charges per mission.

Air Support abilities are locked behind certain Landing Crafts, noted in the chart below. Acquiring the Landing Craft will unlock their respective ability for all Landing Crafts, which can be changed in the Landing Craft Customize screen.

Landing Craft Ability Description
Liset Override Ordis will Override security, sending a beacon that disables lockdowns, resets alarms, and disables security cameras while the beacon is active. In Rescue and Spy missions, any timers will also be paused while the beacon is up.
Mantis Med Tower

Ordis will deploy a Med Tower (which resembles a Life Support Capsule). It will heal the player for 100 health on each activation and may be activated up to 25 times by any player in the squad.

It can also be used as a small wall as it does block Tenno, enemies, and possibly gunfire from passing through it. You can stand on top of the towers to avoid melee type enemies.



Nora Night sends enemies to dreamland with a calming tune.
Scimitar Carpet Bomb Ordis will launch an Air Strike, sending Carpet Bombs crashing on a path determined by where the player was to where the air support charge was deployed, each dealing 250 ​DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact ​damage.
Xiphos Sentry Turret Ordis will launch a sentry turret which fires on nearby hostiles.
