The ASTEROID Kinetic Bombardment Weapon is a UNSC Orbital Bombardment Satellite.

Description

The ASTEROID is an upscaled version of the METEOR Kinetic Bombardment Weapon, used to bomb heavier targets with 16 heavy Gravity Bombs. These bombs are actually rods of ferrous tungsten about seven (7) meters in length, with pointed tips and guidance systems similar to those found in the METEOR system. The exterior casing of these larger rods is often formed from a diamond-like carbon ceramic allowing them to withstand the greatest of heats due to friction with even the thickest of planetary atmospheres. Naturally the increased size and weight of these rods delivers considerably more energy to their targets (roughly that of a mid to low yield 21st century nuke) but with almost no radiation produced at all. These rods are especially useful in destroying buried, hardened, and in some cases, shielded targets. The incredible speeds reached by these bombs during descent makes them nearly impossible to counter without very advanced detection and intercept systems.
