Its a class only thing. Via binoculars. Its on a recharge and all that. Pretty nice for taking out buildings or clearing the area around a sat com.

Mw2 is also more hacked. Do not start comparing the two unless you want a flame war. I warn you.

I give your impression a thumbs up. the only thing missing is to accuse other players of cheating.

Different 'strikes' available in this game: 
-Recon only mortar strike. It's on a timed cooldown, possibly 60 seconds. It can be adapted to do heavy damage to vehicles, but typically doesn't destroy a heavy in one pass unless the driver is an idiot and stays in the middle of it. It's very good at moving infantry and doing tactical damage. 
-Long-barrelled tank - With a vehicle specialisation you can zoom in on an area and do long range bombardment with your tank shell. A good aim makes this very powerful. 
-Helicopter - Has missiles good for striking buildings and armoured targets. It's gunner seat allows for small cannon fire onto the ground, great for taking out infantry and light vehicles. 
 
Depends on how you read into strike!

Most likely what you saw is the Recon class' Mortar Strike, similar to Call of Duty: World at War's artillery strike kill streak reward.  Although the difference is that the Mortar Strike is not a kill streak reward, but rather, it's actually a recon class weapon you can use anytime with a significantly long cool down time.  
 
Here's how it works, view at 0:40 seconds of the video: 
 
  

  
 
Or it may also be an attack from a tank, especially  the BAKCHA tank since it fires multiple rounds and if the other team is using it from a higher location, it can act like an artillery strike. 
 
Or it may be a group of assault class soldiers shooting 40mm grenades simultaneously lol!

Who needs mortars when you can strap 6 pieces of super-C4 onto a dirt bike and slam it into the house at 90 mph?

There are Apaches in the game, they sorta "air" strike on people :)

Coz the quad bike can actually blow up while you're driving it and someone shoots it lol! while the mortar strike can be launched from a distance hehe!

That's why you throw the C4 on the underside of the quad and have a buddy riding dirty shooting smoke everywhere.
 
Granted, it still only works like 10% of the time, but damn it does a lot of MCOM damage.

LOL! true, and it is very satisfying to actual pull off the quad bike + C4 tactic on the MCOM hehe!

Only mortars. Select the sniperclass, and use the binoculars, aim somewhere and hold the firebutton!!
