Oddly enough the Terran Huge Turret (occasionally written THT in mods) actually does slightly less armor and shield damage per second than the standard Terran Turret, but its single hit damage is much greater. Like all so-called blob turrets the Terran Huge Turret is very slow, and therefore, very inaccurate, coupled with both the 3-second delay factor and the fact that in reality the Terran Huge Turret only really does slightly more damage-per-second than the Prometheus R, this is not an effective weapon, for anti-capital or anti-fighter work. This weapon is useful, however, for destroying bombs, which it does fairly effectively.
