"We count thirty Rebel ships, Lord Vader, but they're so small they're evading our turbolasers."
―An Imperial Lieutenant, to Darth Vader, during the Battle of Yavin[src]

An XX-9 heavy turbolaser battery on the Death Star

A turbolaser was a powerful laser cannon turret stationed aboard large craft and space stations, such as the Death Star[1] and the Death Star II.[2] Spacecraft that were equipped with turbolasers included the Tantive IV[3] and the Malevolence.[4]

A turbolaser's effectiveness was weakened drastically as the bolt moved through layers of a planet's atmosphere, making them largely ineffective even against unshielded targets. However, this could be ameliorated by moving the ship deeper into the planet's stratosphere.[5]

Some turbolasers had a limited range of effectiveness, as seen when the Supremacy's weapons were unable to cause damage to the Raddus from a long distance.[6]

Thorilide, mined from the Inner Rim moon Cynda, was a vital resource in a turbolaser.[7]
