Point defense


Okay, so the sensor took a back burner (post below). I have had a place holder for the point defense lasers (last line of defense against pesky ship killer missiles) and decided to finish that first. The PD guns in the Honorverse are comprised of multiple lasers (from 5 to 8 I believe) clustered into a larger turret. They can independently target, within there control area, or be slaved together as a single weapon. I drew upon existing aerial systems in development today by the U.S. and Russia. These pics show that basic weapon without the smaller lenses yet added. I will be adding the lenses later as I built one for a different version I have scrapped. It may be that the LOD would be lost anyhow so I might just put a big cover over the assembly.
