The Model 9 Grindell/Galileian Directed Energy Pusle Weapon was a primary UNSC capital ship arment in the years following the end of the Great War.
The Model 9 was concieved in the first few years following the end of the human covenant war. In fact, by 2564, it was already being used as a fleet arment, and by 2580 almost 15% of the fleet was armed with it. It later inspired other energy based weapons, though it itself was a failure.
The Model 9 was based off of the technology pioneered by the Weapon/Anti-Vehicle Model 6 Grindell/Galileian Nonlinear Rifle, otherwise known as the Spartan laser, but on a vastly larger scale. The Model 9 served a similar role to the covenant plasma torpedoes in the war, and moved highly fast and could devastate ships with repeated salvos.
