While most ships have forward firing weaponry mounted, many ships, including large fighters, cargo haulers and capital ships, also mount turrets located in various positions around the hull. As these ships are generally unable to engage in a dogfight requiring high maneuverability, these turrets form the main line of offense and defense.
While turrets vary in design, they all operate in a similar manner. Press to enter a turret. Press this key to return to the cockpit, then cycle between any additional turrets and the cockpit.
Since flying a ship and managing all the possible turrets can be a big responsibility, today's modern turrets come with a basic Artificial Intelligence, capable of operating all turrets. While not as effective as true pilot interaction, it is better than nothing.
