Yasen-N Turret

From Elite Wiki

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.
