Spinal mount on an Azhanti High Lighting class frontier cruiser from RPG Traveller As a general rule, a space warship is basically a " weapons platform. Single weapons and multi-weapon turrets are mounted on " hardpoints " or "weapon stations.
One only hangs a heavy picture frame on a nail in a wall stud, not just the wall board. For the same reason only mount a heavy turret on a hardpoint, not on a flimsy stretch of hull. Some hulls are about as strong as the skin on a beer can. Turrets pivot to allow aiming the weapon s.
Homing missiles are often mounted in " vertical launch systems " or "missile cells", because they do not have to be aimed. Naturally some people who are into hyper-optimization and min-maxing will quickly switch from mounting weapons on a ship to building the ship around a weapon.
A monstrously huge weapon, with a fixed forward facing. Of course you probably have to turn the entire spacecraft in order to aim the weapon, but the ship is going to smite the target with the most bang for your buck. It certainly will be the sort of ship that will blast the snot out of you if you are stupid enough to turn around and try running away.
The ship will also have a similar outline as the weapon, probably long and skinny. Popular spinal mount weapons are coil guns, rail guns, and particle beam weapons, since those weapons inflict more damage the longer the weapon is.
A good example is the " Wave motion gun " that forms the spine of Space Battleship Yamato. And Matthew Marden pointed out to me that in the USS Vesuvius was virtually a spinal mount, with " dynamite guns " fixed in both traverse and elevation. Isaac Kuo has some interesting observations on the placement of laser turrets: Your laser engine s can fire the beam down a central corridor, with mirrors to select a branch toward any of the laser turrets.
No matter how many turrets you have, you can concentrate all laser firepower through one turret. Rick Robinson calls this a "Laserstar" I tend to favor two turrets on opposite sides. Besides providing all around coverage and some redundancy, it also allows use of a "hunter-killer" tactic.
While one turret fires the laser to kill a target, the other turret can be scanning to "hunt" for the next target. This allows a near instantaneous switch from one target to the next, minimizing down time for the laser engine.Singular Nouns Starting with A.
