The U-Afterburn is a Tier 6 ship in the U-Series mod. It shoots two high damage pulses from the front while using its back lasers to propel itself forward at insane speeds. It is often the choice of ship for top players in the Alpha Centauri Wars event due to its ability to quickly escape fights. Prior to 4.0, it could easily kill many ships due to its high firepower and the ability to quickly escape. It is also highy effective against the U-Smasher since the propulsion of its back lasers can negate most of the knockback.
