Uranium hexafluoride in Southern VictoryEdit
Uranium hexafluoride was a highly toxic gas. It was the only gas known to be effective in the enrichment by gaseous diffusion of uranium. Confederate physicist Henderson V. FitzBelmont mentioned this when he first unsuccessfully attempted to convince President Jake Featherston to support a project to research and build a superbomb.
The Japanese under Yoshio Nishina began development of explosive-metal bombs during the Race Invasion using Uranium hexafluoride in the enrichment process. Their research was aided by information provided by Teerts, a Lizard POW. After Teerts became a ginger addict, he was taken to the Japanese uranium hexafluoride facility to verify they were on the right path.
