Has anyone actually done the math to see what our "effective" loss in turn is, what the time to target is the equivalent of, turn wise?
EDIT: oh and what's this about the Fleet Somraw Raptor Retrofit having a correct pivot?
I wont say it's a loss in turn, but as the nose is so far from the fulcrum those nose mounted weapons will be lagging a bit further behind the target than the ones closer to the fulcrum. I'd guess somewhere in the neighborhood of 8deg (est) lost from the nose mounted cannons firing arc.
