Blue Planet Tech Room Description

Sensor logs from the 14th Battlegroup suggest that the Vishnan primary weapon deploys a self-propagating subspace gate. This gate destabilizes shields and, upon contact with matter, rearranges particles into states that violate the Pauli exclusion principle - a process akin to the degeneracy that produces neutron stars. The resulting detonations are catastrophic. How this is achieved is completely unknown, but the technological advancement displayed is frightening.

The Vishnan counterpart to the GTW UD-8 Kayser. Compared to the latter, it does slightly less damage per shot and doesn't fire as fast, but has an even greater effective range (1650m vs. 975m) and almost double the subsystem damage. The one thing it does have in common with the Kayser is that it eats up your primary weapons energy like a starved pig.
