Originally from the Over the Top Model Dump. No Data is provided for this ship. This model, like the Aoh is unusual because it has many primary gun mounts. In this case, the primary gun bank has 32 firing points. It is unknown what the author intended. Perhaps an ammunition dependent primary gun which used the flag which forces it to cycle through firepoints rather than fire from all at once? Effectively creating a secondary-weapon only bomber.

I believe it was an intentional action. This is probably because Over the Top was set far in the future, and many ships had far more weaponry banks. A few other ships also have a large amount of weaponry banks. The latter conclusion of a cycling ammo-based primary is impossible as Over the Top was, to my knowledge, created for retail FreeSpace 2.

The extremely high number of gunmounts were intended to be used with a special gun known as the SandQueen if I remember correctly. High rate of fire and high number of guns overcome extremely low damage per shot. Just a guess, but this weapon was probably pulled due to the limits on how many shots can be shown on screen.
