The turrets are normally deployed around critical orbital assets to prevent landing parties and strike teams from attacking. "
Anti-Capital - "Forerunner Anti-Flood Defense Turret " -

Sheild - "Covenant Orbtial Sheild Platform" -
"With technology "borrowed" from the Forerunners, the Covenant designed this orbital defense shield satelite.
