I tried adding in an RCS console (the +Turn one), and also found an engine with a [Turn] modifier, but I still find myself with all this unused DPS because I can't get targets into its firing arc. I'm going to keep trying, but if I don't find a way to make this work soon, I think I'm going to give beam arrays another try.
This is exactly why I don't use cannons. the firing radius is garbage on them. Beam arrays are better for reach, just not as much power in each shot
