ArmamentEdit

Main batteries Edit

Main article: Battery

The Zeus-Class Base is armed with three large gun turrets, that are located on three towers in the along the lenght of the base.

These are the main offensive weapon of the base, but are also used to lay down defensive fire against incoming enemy ordnance and fighters.

Point defense guns Edit

The base is equipped with numerous point defense guns located along the entire sides of the flight pods in twin mountings. The base has 550 of this guns.

The entire system is tasked with destroying incoming projectiles. Sensors and expert systems identify and evaluate threats, assigning priorities to them based on data like distance and projected trajectory, while at the same time laying the cannon; this and firing are all done too quickly for a human crew to match.

Although the main batteries are also used to engage incoming fighters and missiles, the point defense guns have a much higher rate of fire, thus making them more effective in that role. Both the point defense and main guns can work in tandem during combat to create a flak field around the base, in addition to targeting incoming enemy munitions over significant distance. Automatic IFF targeting systems, pre-planned firing solutions and corridors presumably allow Vipers to safely launch through such a bombardment.
