Planetary Defense Platforms OverviewEdit
Planetary Defense Platforms are large stationary ships that orbit colonies. Although they are only seen around Cypress with the exception of the two orbiting the Exillion Shipyards. They are normally fitted with 2 Large Quad-Firing Guns using ACS-Shells. These high powered cannons can take out gunships in just a few shots. In addition to these cannons they also have 6 different smaller Plasma-Turrets that can auto-target enemy fighters. Each Platform requres a crew of 30 with the exception of AT-15 which only needs 25. It also uses Dual Ion Cannons as a replacement to the Quads. Each Platform has it's own Captain. Only 2 are named in game though. Cpt. Marcus Rich and Cpt. Jared Godfrey.
