Boron Ray Ion Pulse Turrets (actually I am pretty sure I have seen this on the Hydra Regal too, so maybe its just Ion Pulse Turrets in general) .. They fire their pulse from behind themselves.
In the following code box, imagine the 0 character to be the turret, and the --- to be the pulse firing
Code: Select all
1. 0 2. 0 ------------ 3. -- 0 ------------
2. Is what you would expect to see, the turret being the source of the pulse, and the pulse emitting away from it
3. Is what we see, the pulse starts behind the turret, goes through the turret and ships hull, and then goes on towards its target.

Have a look at the video and you will see what I mean.
If you wish to repro, the save game is with you in the Ray, make it close in on the gate ahead the Xenon should come through soonish, or go through the gate and cause a bit of carnage .. Then press F2 twice and position the camera to see the Ion Pulse turrets firing.
