Question Number of Ion Cannons on a Star Destroyer

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.

Question

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)
