An Electromagnetic Pulse turret, commonly known as the EMP-turret, was a large cannon emitting a high-intensity burst of electromagnetic energy. They were generally significantly upscaled versions of the regular EMP weapons.


EMP-turrets were primarily used by warships, space defense platforms and planetary defenses to weaken shields, short circuits and disable systems of the mechanical targets. The physical damage was limited to melting the hull, due to the heat produced.
