The Block 2 Uller is a UEF point-defense weapon. Designed to replace the obsolete Djinn, it boasts high damage and decent projectile speed. However, it has largely been phased out in favor of the Khatvanga, which greatly outclasses it in terms of speed.

Description

Blue Planet Tech Room Description

The Block 2 Uller was designed alongside its smaller sibling as an upgrade to the Great War-era Djinn design. It was intended to serve as the primary weapon of a new generation of warships, but in spite of vast improvements over its predecessor - doubled damage, enhanced range and projectile speed - the fundamental concept of the Great War-era plasma weapon was obsolete. These heavy plasma weapons can engage targets out to nearly three kilometers, but they have largely been relegated to the secondary point defense role aboard some Federation warships and civilian spacecraft. The Sanctus cruiser, one of the Federation's oldest warship designs, still uses these weapons as part of its armament, relying on their low power draw and heat footprint to supplement its railguns and more modern point defense weapons.
