A Sar air defense platform that is usually mounted on large hovering bases.
About this creation
Aerospace combat is the main theatre of war for the Sar, prompting the build of surface plaforms to defend against low flying helicopters and hover platforms. The Sar on Sar IV usually make the best use of the MSAT.
The MSAT is basically a chair with two Gun Pods mounted on the sides. These Gun Pods are interchangible and feature machine guns, lasers, and missile pods. Some may even fire tracking devices onto ships. Most turrets are preassigned a specific one by their commanding officer.
The chair is completely customizable and features a multitude of accessories, mostly different chairbacks and control grips. Soldiers are usually assigned to one for his entire career, even through moving the turret across vehicles and buildings.
The controls are simple and intuitive: lean the control sticks forward, the gun goes down; lean back and it goes up; pull them right and it turns right; and pull them left and it goes left. If you pull the sticks in the opposite direction you get a surprise.
Don't worry about the openness of the pilot; a shield protects the entire structure. Two out of three Sar pilots prefer this new, open design to the cramped, old design because of the increase in visibility.
The base provides most of the necessary weight and power for the turret, and thus it does not have to be mounted on a ship to be effective, though it must be fed a supply of the hydrogen it uses for fuel. Ahh, all natural.
