So Fractal I was wondering about the outline colours of Turbolaser bolts like the Galactic Empire use green, the Rebels use red and the former Galactic Republic use blue (Not light blue as ion cannons like a darker shade of blue).
Do the colours make any useful difference or it is just for aesthetic purposes?

I really love the weapon design. However, there’s one turret I’ve never seen before and I’d like to know what it is. The turret that’s right behind the DBY-327.

It’s the centreline main turret from the Nebula-Class Star Destroyer.

In terms of muzzle energy: I’ve no idea, but I’d guess it’s a lot more than an ISD-I’s main turrets.

Fractal said it is 320 Teratons per shot.

Here the reason why it have that caliber: http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/viewtopic.php?p=3666291#p3666291

The ones recessed into the hull are Octuple Barbette Turbolasers, the round ones are all Ion Cannons. If it has three barrels, it’s gets the ‘Triple’ prefix, if it has two it’s ‘Dual’, etc. Small ones are Laser Cannons, larger one are variations of Turbolasers, e.g. Dual Heavy Turbolaser Cannon, Quad TurboLaser Cannon.

It would be pretty cool if you could identify the purpose of each turret

I just notice something about the single 40 TT heavy turbolaser turret use on the Vindicator and the Dreadnaught star frigates the barrel size look a lot bigger and longer than the doubles, quads & octs 40 TT heavy turbolasers barrels so why is it that big Fractal?

Be handy if there were some sort of identification legend for this picture so it’d be easier for some people who aren’t as well versed in Star Wars tech as others to be able to pick out what weapons are on what ships. Only turrets I really recognize here are the big quad-emplacement for the octuple barbette turbolasers on the Imperator/Imperial class Star Destroyer.

The octuple Barbette turbo lasers have 8 barrels, the octuple stands for 8

I think they meant the 4 barbette setup on the left, rather than thinking that the barbettes only had 4 cannons in them.

Oh yeah “quad-emplacement” I see now
