Its good for shooting Heavy Plasma Torpedoes. I don't equip it. I have better needs for my tact consoles.

Every 3 seconds or so it shoots a nearby enemy within 5km of your ship. It's great to shoot down mines, heavy plasma torps, and boarding party shuttles as it does it automatically for you without any guidance.

Sometime approach an enemy within 5km and don't use any of your weapons you will see the automated defense turret shooting.

It can be hard to see to shot it fires. It is a a small little thing. I've found it useful so far. Granted, I haven't found a tactical console that gives me more of a bonus yet.

It's autonomous (you don't choose what it shoots at, it just fires)
360 field of fire
5k range
45 plasma damage
Goes in a tactical slot, as opposed to a weapon slot
3 second cooldown

As people mentioned here (and in other threads) it's great for taking out any of those little fighters, mines, torpedos, etc. that attack your ship without having to really pay attention to them.

# 7 Consumer Warning...

It should however come with a warning: "Do Not Equip When Flying Near Flammable Gas Pockets!"

(I am kidding though as I haven't yet seen if the automated defense turret actually tries to shoot them down around you)

Hardly matters since they seriously nerfed the Briar Patch prior to Headstart

Has anyone else noticed that it fires at cloaked ships?

I was flying around a fleet of feds in Solar Wind, and I kept getting shot for low dmg from something...I assumed it was this.

I suspect they are not -supposed- to do that. Think of it this way: if a ship's sensors can't see a cloaked target well enough to fire their main weapons at it why would this little point defense gun be able to?

I honestly think enough people are going to mention this "exploit" enough to get it nerfed eventually.
