Just browsing over the current codex and came up with a weird idea. For record its more risk then its worth i think but i want to make shure my ruling is correct.

Spore mines have the rule "orbital bombardment" in short it allows you to place them before actual deployment via DeepStrike. POM is a IC and has the ability to also DS via wings. Now can a POM join said spore mine brood and use OB to deploy early/in enemy zones?

Codex didnt have anything to restrict it and didnt find anything in the big book/errata.

The PoM lacks the special deployment ability that the Spore Mines possess. As there's no other way to deploy the Spore Mines, joining the PoM to the unit means the PoM blocks the Orbital Bombardment rule. Joining the Spore Mines to the PoM means the Spore Mines block any other means of entering play. Doing this essentially dooms both the Spore Mines and PoM to Reserve purgatory.

In short, you're giving the opponent free KP at the end of the game.
