AI War:Heavy Beam Cannon
| Stationary defense platform mounting a massive long-range beam cannon.
The beam can vaporize multiple smaller craft in one blast, or do heavy damage to a larger target. They shoot multiple beams in a fan-like shape, hitting a group of small ships or a single large ship multiple times.
This does not qualify as Area of Effect damage for the purposes of Immunities.

How to use in your fleet
A sort of super-turret. While more fragile than fortresses, they pack about as much firepower at a much lower energy cost, making them very useful if you don't have access to a Zenith Power Generator.
Note that unlike normal turrets their ship caps are galaxy-wide.
How to counter when in the AI fleet
Luckily, these are human-only.
