Maastricht/Raleigh Ordnance Delivery-Application System

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

A B-65 Shortsword using its M/RODAS delivery system to perform a carpet bombing run on Arcadia.

The Maastricht/Raleigh Ordnance Delivery-Application System, or M/RODAS in shortened form, is a weapon deployment system mounted exclusively on the B-65 Shortsword operated by the United Nations Space Command. Primarily used for carpet bombing, the system is located on the back of Shortsword.[1][2]

The system can drop a near-limitless array of ordnance,[2] but the most well known are the Mark 208 gravity bomb, the XGBU-302 disruption bomb, and the GBU-1105 cryo bomb.[1]


It is likely named after the city of Maastricht, located in the Netherlands.
