If you tune it with missile rotation implant and stuff like that, I think it would become too op.
For a gunship special weapon I imagine something like an high-RoF explosive plasma rifle.
Missile slot implants would not affect this main weapon.
Also regardless of what ship class actually gets this I would loooove a main weapon that shot homing missiles.
(Or homing anything, really.)
I originally thought of a sort of scattergun type weapon that only shot one bolt without spread, but that is essentially just a Flux Phaser. Then I though of a mode toggle for Flux Phaser where a single click (instead of click and hold) would simply fire the projectile on its own homing mechanism. Then I thought that was too much like the aliens weapons. (Which I would love to have too!!) So I thought the next best thing would be homing missiles! ^^
Predator Flux Phaser V 2.0?
I say nope.
