WOIN Starship Weapons in ground Combat


First off, Starship weapons can only be fired once per round and each round is one minute. Correct?
So a ship weapon should only be able to be fired once every 10 rounds when on the ground against non-starships (PCs etc.)

Now, taking a starship weapon, get the turret upgrade, dedicated computer and a dedicated power source.
Boom! The cheapest turret you can use against your players is a size small 10 SOAK (Steel) with 70 HP with a range of 1 kilometer that does 10 static heat damage every 10 rounds for only 4000cr. Or upgrade it to get the same stats but 10d6 damage for a total of 8000cr.

You now have the tools to equip your army base/ hideout/ fortress with weapons that will most certainly put your players in a predicament.

Never feel overwhelmed by your players ever again with starship turrets aiming at them (Try SOAKing that Projectile Cannon, I dare you! I DOUBLE DARE YOU!)

Unbalanced? Players can get these too. Turret operators still only have Cover (-2d6) and it's possible to hack the turret computer to disable them. Improvise, adapt, overcome

Also, like vehicles and Mechs, reducing it to Half health disables it. Using the Object rules from NEW -Small 70 HP, Medium-150, Large-250, Enormous-450, Gigantic-700, Colossal-1100, Titanic-1500
Enjoy ;)

Even the most hardened PC doesn't want a starship weapon pointed at them!
