The ICC line station has 3 Ion Cannons. Can i ask for the Reasoning on having 2 forward and 1 aft.

In my mind i dont see much point to having an Aft Ion cannon unless there were one on every arc, and then i could be a giant pin wheel of Ion launching.

the other thing is that this manual targeting is very cumbersome with the station. The AD is ok, cus its almost a gun site,( is it possible to take the Ion off alpha?) but the station is just to much hassel. Not to mention that possibly adding some kind of ICC faction Tech Scanner funtion to target your shots would be most appreciated for some kind of Rangeing function in order to detonate the blast.

In my mind the Ion cannon looses its value very quickly when somebody parks their EAD/BD by you in an SD mindset. I cant wait to see the FF off this weapon. poor little scouts and frigs..

Im sure that this is a very low priorty section of the game

Not to mention the command station which has only a forward firing ion cannon and the only reason I can see why they did that was because once upon a time the ion cannon didnt track within its arc but since thats been changed why not put it into a full arc on the command station, and on the Line station put one full and then leave the other 2 the way they are...
