Orbital Strikes: LOIC anyone?

Alright, let's stop fucking around.  You all know what I'm talking about here.  The Hammer of God.  Orbital satellite to ground strikes.  Oh yeah!

OK, so this depends on quite a few things.
One, clear communications to the satellite or it's controller.
Two, the satellite must be in an appropriate orbital path/time-frame, or Geo-synchronous in order to deliver the Package.
Three, What are the criteria for calling in a god-strike?  We have Ogres on the field.  How much worse can it get?

Rules: An orbital strike costs the player the 5 armor units during setup.  When used, the player declares the target hex and rolls 1d6: on a 5 or 6, the call gets through and the strike is called down.  Anything within the target hex is struck at 5-1 odds (if an Ogre, roll for each weapon system and 3d6 for tread damage).  For each hex distance from the target hex, reduce the damage by 1 (so 2 hexes away is 4-1 odds, three is 3-1 odds, etc).  Anything past 5 hexes is safe.  Place a crater in the target hex.
