So I was reading about various emplacement weapons and stumble on the "Escort quad laser cannon" article. On reading it the weapon is stated to be "a specialized quad laser cannon developed some years before the fall of the Galactic Republic." of which there are twenty on each Ubrikkian Frigate.. So far so good.
I continued to read but choked on my Coffee when I read this line "It was small and could destroy one Providence-class carrier/destroyer with only two shots. However, it took a period of five seconds to recharge". This would logically mean that if all the Frigate's turrets had firing angles a single 350m Frigate could destroy 10 ships circa three times it's length and then repeat that feat every 5 seconds.
I'm going to be brutally honest, I've not read the only source cited "Tempest Feud", but is this really the firepower cited in the book or just some fanon conjecture with a faked reference? That sort of firepower puts this "Quad laser" on a par with some small superweapons in its destructive capacity.
Would raise the questions, why didn't the Ubrikkians just destroy the whole CIS Fleet single handed with a half dozen ships?
Could well be an error or vandalism, but unfortunately couldn't bring myself to go and read all its edits because I am a chronically lazy person. --Atredies (talk) 09:44, January 18, 2013 (UTC)
