LIU Planetary Defense Turret
Planetary defense can be boiled down to one thing.... BIG GUNS...
About this creation
LIU Planetary Defense Turret - PDT


Being invaded by Space Pirates, Vekens, Deformed Master Chiefs, or some other enemy? The Ludgonian Industrial Union has your answer, the Planetary Defense Turret. Down the invader's capital ships, landing barges, or dropships with the turret's heavy fire.


The PDT, purchased in high numbers, will insure that any given planet is safe from invasion. Your enemies will think twice before bringing any ship into the PDT's range (which is about 26 miles).





The PDT is built deep into the ground to avoid any recoil, however, this limits its mobility and its ability to turn. This weakness can be covered up by building several turrets in the same area.





Each PDT is operated by one gunner located inside of the guns cabin.








The PDT fires massive energy bursts from its two main guns. If the guns are fired at the same time, its fire rate is one large shot every 26 seconds. If the guns are fired seperately, the fire rate is one medium shot every 13 seconds. Use the different rates for different enemy ships.






The power source for the PDT is buried deep underground and covered with this concrete bunker to protect it from enemy fire. The large hatch seen here allows engineers access to the power source.






The PDT sits on two long tracks that allow it to lower or raise to different levels.








The view of the cabin's side shows the gun's computerized aiming system and a maintenance hatch.








Here's the PDT's two guns. Note the comm antenna on top.









A brighter picture of the gun....









The three trees that once stood in front of this PDT were reduced to stumps when the gun fired.








The PDT is accessible via this rear hatch. The entire cabin is heavily armored to insure your gunner can fire away without worrying about enemy fire.








Here's a view of the cabin. With the aid of powerful computers and an advanced aiming system, the gunner can bring down any target.







In the LIU, the Atmospheric Guard (formally known as the Coast Guard) mans the PDT's. Here, a gunner from the Atmospheric Guard poses next to his PDT.







Note: The PDT can be used anywhere, from ice planets to space stations, but where ever it is, it must be anchored. We tried to place it on the back of one of our Supply Trucks, but the gun sent it flying two hundred feet with its recoil.

it s the same concept of cannon than the hoth planet i presume? nice design, but, rotation is a must, the stand should be improved in the next generation! i like the external panels, and mostly the burried power source! good work!

I like this turret. I think the actual gun-barrels are a bit too big for the base though. Maybe try to work on that for your next turret?

My hilarious comment of choice: "The three trees that once stood in front of this PDT were reduced to stumps when the gun fired." This sure is one helluva' BFG.

range of 26 miles might graze something low orbital, and no rotation really limits its effectiveness

Very good job here. I like how the turret can aim up or down but not side to side. But im pretty sure thats a marketing exploit so we have to buy more to protect our citys......but your secrets safe with me....Good Work!

Does it spin? its not really a turret if it doesn't spin. At least, thats my deffinition of turret.

It's too small... but then again, it's sci-fi, and that size doesn't matter is obvious since MIB... But the mounting of the gun looks to weak, that's for sure. nevertheless, the design of the gun is rather impressive, with the greebles and stuff, well done!

An ausome gun. Though one problem, how does it rotate? love your sense of humor 5*

Pretty good Idea and MOC. The turret seems a bit unbalanced though, try some stabilizer chains/machinery.

A range of 26 miles? Doesn't sound much like a "planetary defense from atmospheric invasion", but the looks of it might scare any punks off before you even have to shoot. We'd by a couple hundred if we had room on our single, tiny planet, which is so small most invasions miss it entirely (hee hee).

A planetary defense turret hmmm.....sounds familar, ha kidding. Its pretty nice. I wonder which of your defense turrets is more powerful, perhaps there equally matched? Anyway nice work, big too.

Very nice! A great addition to your mocs. Looks a tad weird, like some of your other stuff. But weird is not always bad. I like this alot.

your MOCs are always simple and yet look great for the types of peices used, and this bad boy is no exception! My landers and dropships sure would have a hard time getting past any of these!

Great model and write up. My only disapointment was when I saw the minifigure for scale. I imgined it alot bigger, I mean a massive piece of artillary, not a car sized gun.

"Deformed Master Chiefs" Your captions are hilarious. The gun muzzle seems un-detailed, but the rest of the exterior/interior is pretty good.

That is one BIG turret! My only little fuss is that you should try your hand at putting some greebling in there that doesn't consist of printed tiles. But I won't take a star off for that, because this is still awesome. I wouldn't want to be in a transport ship that has to pass by any of these monsters.

I like this one alot. I would make the turrets longer though.

I have a little bone to pick with the LIU's sales rep. We placed an order for 200 of these. Delivery was fine, but upon test firing the first gun, instead of blasting the SNOT out of our sworn enemies, a little banner came out the front that said "Bang!"

I'll take about 500 to bring down the "133t P31i(4n"s that are swamping MOCpages... these will blast them apart so nobody can ever rebuild them, right? Lol, great MOC.

Hmm... An anti-ship battery is very useful. I like how you don't concentrate on making it look like some beautiful work of sci-fi art, but instead you go for something realisitic. It looks as if it could be designed in reality by mechanics of one of Earth's countries. Great job! (It sent the supply truck flying back 200 feet, lol...)

Help! I'm being overrun by hideous Master Cheifs everywhere! Please sent a dozen of these Down Under ASAP!...
