Some ships use a turret as a primary weapon. Each of these ships has a unique primary weapon icon, and the ship's token shows a circular red arrow around the token's center as a reminder. When attacking with a turret primary weapon, a ship may target an enemy ship inside or outside its firing arc.
- A ship with a turret primary weapon still has a printed firing arc that is not 360°.
- When attacking with a secondary weapon, the ship must still target an enemy ship inside its primary firing arc (unless specified otherwise on its Upgrade card).
- A turret is not a firing arc, it merely allows a ship to fire outside its firing arcs. Effects that reference a firing arc ignore the 360° range of turrets.
