A vacuum enhanced, nuclear tipped missile of devastating power. Used against unshielded targets, it typically results in instant vaporisation of all but the largest targets. It is also one of the more expensive UNSC weapons. The Shiva launch tube mechanism costs 150 million Credits to make, with each missile costing 35 million. The Shiva Nuclear weapon is generally a last resort weapon due to the massive blast range, damage and cost, which is only surpassed by ships themselves and NOVA Bombs.
