The GTW UD-8 Kayser is an advanced primary weapon that is now in its late OpEval period. It has high marks for both shield and armor penetration, beyond even the formidable GTW Prometheus S. Its shots move fast, reach a decent range, and pack a heck of a punch. That's the good news. The bad news is that, as expected for a prototype weapon, its compatibility with existing fighters and bombers is poor. Few craft can mount this cannon. The weapon's energy requirements are also very high. Still, when you see one of these on the battlefield, you should immediately be very cautious. It's a powerful device, given only to veteran and elite squadrons. Special Operations Command, especially, seems to have priority selection.

Tech Room Data
The GTW UD-8 Kayser is the result of an intensive study of Shivan weapon technology. The Kayser emits focused waves of subatomic particles that bombard its target. Impact causes the wave function of the particles to collapse and emit extremely intense, zero-point energy microbursts. Standard policy dictates that weapons of this magnitude be mounted only on bombers, but it has become common practice for field technicians to mount them on fighters.
