I could see the resource being used for a number of additional things. For instance instead of using it tofill a base you could convert it to energy via a module attached to the ANT and make the ANT a mobile shield generator, providing defence from bombardment. So for example it mined 10000 RUs then this converts as a shield with 10000 shield points. The shield could extend like a bubble for say 25-50m in all directions protecting things like AMS's or Skyguards or troop concentrations.

Again you could replace the shield module with say a heavy EMP turret module that uses the RUs as fuel/ammo and it can fire focussed EMP blasts disabling vehicle weaponary or base turrets for 5 seconds.

Loads of possibilities
