Vehicle Handbook question - turrets

Postby collins355 » Fri Mar 10, 2017 10:12 pm

Do items placed in large turrets also occupy spaces taken from the total available to the chassis? Or does a large turret only consume four spaces from the chassis total no matter what it has inside it?

It would be good to get an official clarification on this.

Secondly, can I mount things other than weapons in the turret? For example other space consuming items like sensors.

Weapons still occupy space, yes, regardless of the mount type. Otherwise you could have a 3-space gravsled with an orbital defense laser!

And only weapons can be mounted in a turret. But since turrets don't give you free space, your can always say the sensors are 'mounted' to the turret.

Thanks, so the space consumed is actually the space for the weapon + 4 spaces for the turret + space(s) for crew in the turret?

Is it the case that weapons in a small turret also consume space in the chassis equal to their size?

Yes and yes. You got it!
