The UCS Army, controlled by strategic computers, spent huge sums during the war on scientific research into new types of weaponry. As a result, great progress was made in the field of plasma weapon development. Its tremendous destructive power, quick-firing chamber and low energy consumption makes it the perfect all-around weapon.

The big breakthrough came when the scientists at last figured out how to adapt the old satellite reconnaissance system of 2142 into a new plasma gunnery system. This allowed plasma beams shot from ground-based guns to be redirected to hit any target on the Earth's surface, enabling destruction of enemy vehicles and structures hidden in places inaccessible to regular UCS units.
