The original Vull Lance was an invention of the enigmatic Esmand Vull whom first grew the first focusing crystals used by the weapon to focus the high powered lasers employed in the weapon.
Originally intended as an industrial mining cutter, the Vull Lance quickly became "re-purposed" as a weapon during the First War, leading to its widespread adoption as a weapon - it's usage was more prominent in around surrounding mining colonies where they were made available in larger quantities.
Method of Operation
The technologically advanced Vull Lance uses artificially grown crystals to focus and amplify focused light energy into a cohesive beam capable of causing rapid heat transfer from weapon to target. The thermal changes causes extensive damage to the target.
The only downside is that the weapon gradually uses effectiveness due to impurities in the focusing crystals - these impurities gradually become more and more apparent, leading to a less than perfect beam over time.
