Homebrew Reference Book: New Jedi Order Campaign Guide
The Uumufalh was an escort Starship used by The Yuuzhan Vong Empire to accompany large warships. Between 120 and 615 meters long and spear-shaped, these gunships, equipped with Dovin Basals and Plasma Projectors, were primarily utilized for Orbital Bombardment and fleet defense.
Although smaller than most cruisers, Uumufalh Gunships pack the same amount of firepower, making them excellent escort ships. The favored tactic of Uumufalh commanders is a sort of ongoing "Volley Fire," in which several ships fire their weapons in sequence to wear down the target's defenses.

Tactical Fire Edit
Uumufalh Gunships are designed to weaken the shields of enemy vessels by volley-firing their Yaret-kors. As a Standard Action, an Uumufalh Gunship can forgo all attacks to provide Tactical Fire to all adjacent squares. All enemy Starships of Colossal size or larger within that area have their Shield Rating reduced by -20.
