Do the ball mounts under the missile towers and the main turrets rotate as well?

The station looks great so far, especially now with the PD towers, and the turret collars on the main guns reminds me of Grievous’ neck collar. The only ships I can think of that this station would have trouble with are fast attack cruisers like the MC30 or massive dreadnoughts that could outgun or out-range the station, but I doubt you can out-range those main guns. Do you have any plans to update the turret post or make a new one with all the new turrets you have have been making? I would love to see everything scaled side by… Read more »

I like the huge number of PD turrets, since fighters would be a big threat in planetary defense scenarios. I’d hate to have to hit these with strike craft, and those big guns should make short work of most larger ships.

I’m still hoping for a power output estimate on this beast, as well as the energy output of those massive main guns.

Are those quad HTLs just 1 big turret or are they sorta like the Dunkerque/Richelieu-class quad turrets where there’s a bulkhead dividing them into separate gun houses with their own crews & such to lessen the chances of the entire turret being taken out if damaged?

Given the amount of space dedicated to actual guns in proportion to whole turret, are there really a reason to assume that crew would be situated so close for such subdivision to come into play? Thats before taking into account that with weapons which power output starts at multikillo/megaton mark, anything that takes out the turret most likely outright evaporates its more squishy componets.

Given the size these are likely divided into dozens of compartments. The much smaller DBY-827 (main battery on the Venator) appears to show multiple compartments in the cross-section book on Episode III. See here:comment image/revision/latest?cb=20080803150737

The Imperial-I heavy turrets in the original cross-section book showed the firing control compartment in a completely different area outside the turret itself, so that is also a likely option. See here:comment image/revision/latest?cb=20080803150722

The idea that those quad turrets would be more or less open inside seems very unlikely considering they are larger than many small warships.
