These are independent gun turrets which house plasma weapons
The plasma turret weapons fitted to capital ships and sometimes smaller OXP ships:
- automatic shot leading makes them reasonably accurate
- they're turrets, so you don't also have to point the ship more than vaguely in the right direction
- no overheating
- no energy use
- low damage per hit
- short range
The addon offers a kind of upgrade path. It features one basic Yasen-N model, buyable at Shipyards with TL7 or above, which can be upgraded to one of three different Yasen-N Advanced models. You can choose between three different turret setups, which can be bought for 100,000₢ on shipyards with TL13 or above. When sold you get a refund of around 30% of the original.
- You have to have a clean legal status.
- You always need 15t of free cargo space for fitting the turret and plasma generators.
- Only some ships can fit them (see below)
- You need Radical Logistics installed
- You need Ship Storage Helper installed
These can only be fitted on ships such as
