From Star Blasers (aka Space Battleship Yamato)
From the enemy race (later allies) galman, gamilon, gamilion.... depending on who translated or spelling preference....
The Gamilion ship designs were one I loved from the first day I saw their distinctive destroyers.
This is a closer look at the Unique type of ship turret they introduced in that Anime.
Generally I expected it has no ability to aim up or down. But closer look I believe it can focal pivot in the socket and the turret must be able to rock in spot up and down.
Combined those two allow a little improvement.
Even still in the show the ships turned to aim and there is little actual evidence to what I assume.
Either way I still loved the look of the turrets. They also showed up in a varriant in many other Anime, Manga, and even TSR's Star Frontiers.
I am planning on doing other battery and gun studies from SciFi for my game.
