Because......ITS AN ABSTRACTION!!

Somewhere now lost in time we went over this bit about how even on a perfect ship where no parts of the ship but other turrets would ever obstruct fire, that each turret added beyond one decreased the coverage of all the turrets. It's actually quite an interesting little problem where it comes down to one of two extremes of full weapon fire in half the arc, or half weapon fire in all arcs.

And to answer your rather simple question as two how a rear mounted turret can fire forward...

MOUNT IT HIGH UP IN THE BACK!!!!! OR DOWN LOW IN THE BACK!!!!!!!!

TURRET
