The Turbo-Laser Destructor is a potent laser-based energy weapon typically mounted on Imperial Titans, but employed elsewhere in the Imperium on other super-heavy vehicles. Typically mounted in groups of two or three to inflict as much damage as possible, the weapon is best employed against other superheavy vehicles due to its long range and concentrated destructive power.
Turbo-lasers are known to be very destructive to the surrounding environment, capable of penetrating through the ground down to the bedrock and leaving behind long gouges of fused earth.[1a] In urban environments their scorching emissions have shivered tiles off roofs and shattered windows at their passing, and an entire block-row of buildings can be leveled in one sweep of these weapons.[1d] Against lesser foes turbo-lasers have been known to cause infantry to ignite and evaporate almost instantly,[1a] while punching right through the armour of Battle Tanks, tearing them in two and disintegrating them with a single shot.[1b] However the Void Shields of even a Warhound Scout Titan allow it to survive multiple hits from a turbo-laser.[1c]
Laser Blaster (Triple-Barrelled)
The Laser Blaster is essentially three Turbo-Laser barrels mounted together on a single hard-point. These are commonly found on arm mounts of Reavers and Warlord Battle Titans.[2c]. The Imperator class titan can also carry one or more Laser Blasters on its carapace hard-points.
