Design and Function
The Gravity Disruptor used Gravitics to tear an opening in an object. It did so with four separate cubes placed on the surface of the object in a square pattern. The four corners of the square created four overlapping triangles that could tear apart any surface. Yet to work, the cubes had to be placed exactly right; placed wrong, and the cubes could create shrapnel clouds or fail to tear a large enough hole.
Sometime after the First Formic War, the weapon was created by the International Fleet's Weapons and Materials Research Division. Later, the International Fleet used it as a breach weapon for use in the Second Formic War.
