My ship can't handle cannons which kinda upsets me. Nevertheless, I want to know what ship in Vice Admiral to get that can handle every weapon imaginable - turrets, cannons, heavy cannons.

It's just that I see some people in a combat zone with weapon bolts just pouring out of their banks. I so want that!

Escort is the ship type you want - ability to mount dual heavy cannons, lots of tac console slots and plenty of Boff slots for tactical abilities.

If you want a science or cruiser to add to your stable, you can buy the mirror versions for EC on the exchange quite cheaply.

or you go KLINGON, 90% of their ships can equip dual cannons...doesn't make allways sense, but they can.
Anyway, to actually make use of dual cannons you need atleast a base turnrate of 9 or10...the more the better of course.

Look for something like 'can take cannons' in the shipyard listing Fed side (for some reason KDF doesn't have text indicating whether a ship can ATM). Fed side is limited to mostly escorts with a few exceptions, the new Vesta Science ship can take them and the old Galaxy-X Dreadnought can take them as well (though it has a slow turnrate and limited Tac BOff spots). All ships can fit single cannons, turrets, beam arrays and dual-beam banks.

The BOff ability you want is called 'Cannon Rapid Fire' to spew out the weapon bolts with cannons.

Single cannon excelsior's put out an impressive wall of fire. And then stay around to keep it there.

You can use single cannons on an Oddy anyone with turrets this means 2 single cannons and 4 turrets.
