The ships has numerous launchers in its hull that can form discoid custom weapons pods. The weapons take about two minutes to form and usually fire some sort of transphased energy beams or scalar electromagnetic interferometric pulses, due to the abilities of such weapons to hit and destroy shielded targets. When the pods are deployed, they move fully out of and around the ship (they float) and adjust their position to obtain the maximum volume of fire. Each pod has a maximum output of 150,000 PetaWatts (two times as great as the PDV-5). Should a Star Army ship be disabled or destroyed, the pods will actually jump to another suitable Star Army ship that passes close by.
A pod is about the size of a 6-person round dinner table and about three feet thick from top to bottom.
