Fuel Rods are fuel for the Nuclear Reactor or the Rapid Fissile Accelerator.

Function & Usage

Fuel Rods can be used in a Nuclear Reactor to provide power, or as ammunition for the Rapid Fissile Accelerator. The condition of the Fuel Rod drains as it is used, and when it reaches 0% it no longer produces power. Empty fuel rods can be refilled with more Uranium, or recycled into Depleted Fuel.
