Air Support Charges are a Gear item that calls in support from the player's Landing Craft (either the Liset, Scimitar, Mantis or Xiphos) during a mission, with the exact type of support depending on the chosen Landing Craft. They were introduced in Update 17.5.

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 in between uses, with a cooldown timer visible on the Gear wheel menu. You can only carry 200 at a time in a mission.
|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.|
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.
|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 Impact damage.|
|Xiphos||Sentry Turret||Ordis will launch a sentry turret which fires on nearby hostiles.|
