Just one problem, I'm sure those guns in cannon were Octuple Turbolasers, not ion cannons like on the ISD-I

They could be either Turbos or Ions according to the Wookieepedia....

Indeed. The ISD-II was famed for Octuple Turrets, but they could be either Ion Cannons or Turbolasers, depending on the individual Star Destroyer. In official media I have only ever seen versions with Ion Cannons fire, such as in the Rogue Squadron series video games, so I based the weapons on that. Youtube.com

Just to balance it out though, I've given the Tector class the 8 Turbolaser turrets, as we do not have any official list of its armament but I assume it to be similar to the ISD-II.

How are you planning on implementing ion cannons Goa? They dont damage ships in star wars so a weapon doesnt seem a good fit. Shield damage and antimatter draining maybe?

Well, that depends. For now they are regular weapons because otherwise most of the Star Destroyers would just be dealing turbolaser damage. However you'll notice on the Victory-II page in the capitalship ability list thread they have an ability that makes its ion cannons work properly, that is shield damage and if the shields are down they will reduce rate of fire. The problem is getting this to work requires an ability slot and I don't have room to do that on all capitalships.

Have you considered having 5 abilities per capital ship? if the 5th one is passive it doesn't need a button for it.

It is a possibility, but the 5th ability slot is already being used on some ships for other things, so using it is a bit more complicated. Balancing a weapon that only deals shield damage would also be quite challenging so at first they'll be normal weapons.

Rigged up the final details on the ISD-IIs weapon points today. A word of advice, try to avoid its primary Ion Cannon battery. It hurts.
