Just a wild idea... turrets on ships

I was just thinking, the game is awesome already but what about turrets ON ships? Has this ever crossed anyone's mind? Wouldn't it be cool if some ships could be equipt with turrets :roll: . Like real life. On airplanes there are turrets on most bombers of WWII. Turrets on the spaceships would be awesome!

I like this idea. I have thought of it before many times before.

what would be really great would be massive capital ships with turrets! Maybe seperate armour values for each individual turret as well as engines and stuff. It would be great to blow bits off them.

Turrets (the ability to shoot in a direction other than the one you are flying in) would take a lot of the skill (getting into position (usually behind) for the kill shot) out of the game.

A problem with rear facing turrets would be that when you fire a missile it starts off with your current speed and then accelerates so it would end up being fairly stationary. Try flying backwards very quickly and shoot a missile and you'll see what I mean.

I think, to satisfy Steve and other people on his idea, mines should have a certain amount of time before they are armed. That way, if you happen to be dog fighting and aren?t maneuverable enough but going quite fast, you can get over the mine before it arms itself.

Theoretically, if you flew backwards fast and fired Yatari's (slow) then wouldn't they sort of turn into mines because they're practically stationary?

yes they do, in fact if you fly back fast enough they go backward very slowly

Yeah, I just tried it out with a fast custom ship and the Yataris actually move back pretty fast so that if you slow down even a little they outrun you. This doesn't work with other missiles, though because they have too much thrust and fuel.

But there isn't really much use to it anyway...
