The DF.9 turret placement, also known as the DF.9 Anti-Infantry Battery, the DF9 Turret, or simply the DF.9 was a model of stationary anti-infantry laser cannon emplacement manufactured by Golan Arms.
Description[edit | edit source]
Manufactured by Golan Arms, the DF.9's single laser canon was capable of firing blasts capable of annihilating whole squads of approaching infantry. Effective at a distance of up to 16 kilometers, the gunner in the upper turret enjoyed a rapid firing rate with a full 360° firing arc. The durasteel protected turret could easily withstand blaster fire, all while a targeting computer technician assisted with precision aim and another ensured stable energy flow from the power generator.
