Groundstrike:

Instead of making normal cc attacks he can chose to make a groundstrike attack at I1. It automatically inflicts 1 hit against each enemy unit engaged with Aiakos for each model in that unit in base contact with Aiakos model. So for example, if Aiakos is in base contact with three models from an enemy unit, the unit suffers 3 hits and so on.

Str 6 Ap4 Melee, Strikedown.
"Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealously, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war, minus the shooting." - George Orwell

That bomber sounds horribly potent. Not sure about anything that could take that one down, even a flying Daemon with the S8 Lance shot would be slim odds. Good thing it wasn't released in time for the Gladiator !
