Uranium-235 is, along with uranium-238, one of the refined products of uranium ore. It is used in the production of nuclear fuels and the atomic bomb. Uranium-235 is produced through uranium processing in a centrifuge, or through the Kovarex enrichment process.

Uranium-235 is much rarer than its counterpart, uranium-238. A centrifuge processing uranium ore will produce roughly 1 unit of uranium-235 for every 142 units of uranium-238, which requires about 1430 units of uranium ore, making it one of most expensive products in the game. Once 40 units have been amassed, it can be generated much more quickly through the Kovarex process.
