The 5"/42 Caliber Gun "The Fork" is a module in Lightspeed Frontier.
Fires high explosive rounds at a decent rate. Accuracy may vary however.
Salvaged from a 20th century Earth sea-based destroyer, later upgraded and refit many times across the years. The barrels were elongated, the loading system was replaced with an energy-to-ammo replicator. It's still considered very outdated but the design is nothing if not determined to say around.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Usage[edit | edit source]
It supports all three fire groups and acts in every way as any other turret.
Placement[edit | edit source]
Like most weapons, the turret is attached radially. However due to its somewhat narrow turning angle of 190 degrees it can be placed closer to other modules on its rear side - making it ideal for side placement.
Along it its turning circle space it occupies 6 ship attachment units in total (3 wide, 2 long, 2 high).
