Dynamic multi axled laser turret. by JB1992 Dynamic multi axled laser turret. by JB1992
Dynamic multi-axled laser turret. 
(D-MAL turret)

--
INFO:

manufacturer: Eramo Empire Heavy Arsenals.
type of weapon: Laser
Projectile TOP speed: Speed of light.
Fire speed: 10000 rpm
power source: main Zero point flux reactor.
Weapon arcs: 360 UP, 360 TURN,

laser weapons have always been around for defense against projectiles. The normal mono-axled laser turrets where often insufficient for space combat 
because of the directional focus approach, (they can only target one projectile a time). The Dynamic multi-axled laser turret however can target up to ten targets.
and has a stunning 10000 rpm fire speed. The design of the turret has been altered many times to ultimately become efficient an powerful.
the latest designs feature ten directed laser outputs. The laser outputs can be set to fire in sync or in a given pattern or just fire individually.

Working:

The Dynamic multi-axled laser turret or D-MAL turret is a very complex and powerful weapon system. The D-MAL is categorized as laser weapon but it is actually a beam type weapon, The D-MAL fires a Inertial fusion beam. the beam is made using Inertial fusion reactors. In the fusion reactor a fusion releases a burst of fusion-energy in the form of high-energy neutrons (about 80 percent of the energy), X-rays, and energetic ions, this then goes through a catalyst accelerator and a wide range of focusing crystals, the beam is then send through shafts into the turret mount, an altering superbolic crystal is centered in the turrets sphere, this crystal is controlled by the targeting computer to focus the beam through the ten outputs at any given time. focusing lenses on the ten outputs focus the beam to the target.

Effectiveness and Use

D-MAL Laser turrets are found on all classes of ship, and also on small planes, The lasers are triple p (PPP) pin point precision weapons and can also be used as shield drainers. They can be found in arrays of six on the side of a navy vessel or at the tip or back of a plane were they can cover the flanks and also fire forward or backward if necessary. D-MAL Laser turrets are almost always used as deference weapon yet can be used as offence weapon, the D-MAL laser basically is a long range weapon. Their job is essentially to destroy incoming targets but it can also be used as massive strike weapon, in which a array of 24 lasses can shoot a barrage of thousands of beams at a shielded target basically blinding and draining the Shields very quickly. a turret can also focus multiple beams at one point making it even more dangerous. The ball mount has multiple laser outputs, this makes the turret super efficientA few of those turrets (hence way there placed in arrays of six) can easily take down vastly moving swarms of targets, be it drones or a barrages of projectiles.even missiles with special armor. The only weak spots of D-MAL is that it can overheat all the outputs in congested situations.

is it alright if I take part of the design for a mass effect fanfic I'm writing?
I agree with the mono-axle design weakness for laser PDWs but was struggling to come up with a design concept for a multi-axle one like yours.
Like what shape do you think is the best to provide the most firing lines? Something like a dodecahedron or a Conway polyhedron? Or maybe even a Iscosidodecahedron?
Thank you and awesome images you have made.

Well obviously you need a shape with lots of surface area, I was actually thinking of a "Goldberg polyhedron, Icosahedral" , you can use the hexagons on the polyhedron as facets for the laser outputs for instance,
also a multi-facet laser should fire beams (concentrated bursts) while it spins, in terms a laser pulsar is more powerful then a normal laser projector because of the constant stream of bursts (pulses).
also keep in mind you need an axle mechanism to "mount" your ball created in, you can go for a single axle or a double fork joint, (like mine has), using the single option will give you the advantage to turn each side individually.

You just have to go make something better than mine eh? 

XD

seriously awesome concept!

LOL, yeah, I admit the idea of the laser weapon was indeed inspired by yours, =D
when I was making the sprite version for the union vessel I used this as a Muze: news.cnet.com/i/bto/20070622/A…
The link shows a real world application laser weapon. though the whole pivot construction is sort of universal...
so why not improve upon space dynamics warfare :XD:

haha brilliant i do think this is fantastic!

And exactly take new weapons and make them space worthy!

Should I make a sprite version? in Union blue and with red laser focusing arrays. :) we can always RP its made in the Joined tactical warfare and research department on Eldrani =D

Now that would be awesome! i have to say a joint ship project between us would be seriously cool!

well I have all the guns and cannons... are you thinking what I'm thinking?! 
ow shit, we are so going to do this when I'm done making that damn heavy cruiser model. =D
