I have this huge disagreement with a friend of mine about how many Ion Cannons are on a Star Destroyer. I say there are 60, while he doesn't think there are any. The question was first posted in a question to the magazine PC Gamer. I was just hoping you guys could settle this

There ARE ion cannons on an ImpStar, and I think 60 is correct.

What do you mean you depressed the button marked 'destruct'?

60 ions is what the stats say, though I don't think there are any on them in the X-wing games.

Then why don't they show up in the target component list? Do they come out of the same guns as lasers?

in the XWA and all of the X-wing series. A turret (Capital ship hard point) is a duel role cannon, it can fire both TurboLasers, and Ions. but it only fires Ions when it is mission specific

the WEG Imp scorcebook states that a ISD-I has 60 Turbo Lasers (20 front, 15 left and right, 10 back) 60 Ion cannons (20 front, 15 left and right, 10 Back)

The ISD-II has 50 Heavy Turbolasers Batteries {4 in a turret} (20 front, 15 left and right) 50 Heavy Turbolaser cannons (20 front, 10 left and right, 10 back) and 20 Ion cannons (10 front, 5 left and right)
