Yeah, plus, the missile turrets aren't worth crud with their weapons, even against capital ships, unless the target isn't moving. They do, however, have a nice sight range.
When I've got the enemy deadlocked at the frontlines of the battle, I use laser batteries in the front and missile sites in the rear to keep an eye out for sneak attacks, so I don't have to commit population points to watching.
