Question about Turret Arcs and Special Weapons - if I have a ship with a primary weapon that only has a turret arc. The ship is also equipped with a special weapon that has fixed forward firing arc (like missile, torpedo or jamming beam). Can I still fire my special weapon although my only primary firing (turret) arc is pointing in a different direction than the forward firing arc? I would have thought, yes, since I see them as two different arcs (with the forward firing arc then being added to my ship by the special-weapon-upgrade card?), but then I played the free computer version of X-wing, FlyCasual (available for free at https://github.com/Sandrem/FlyCasual/releases/tag/1.2 , but with features still being developed and added) and in that game my RZ-2 A-Wing seemed unable to fire its missiles (on ships in the forward firing arc) while its primary guns/turret arc were facing backwards. But perhaps it was just a bug or oversight in the program, but still made me wonder if I got it wrong? The only ship I know that need to have its turrect arc in the direction it fires its missiles, is the Tie/sf Fighter that specifically specifies that it can only fire its missiles in the direction of the turret arc. But other ships should still be able to fire their missiles, torpedoes or cannons, even though the ship's only primary weapon turret arc is facing in a different direction? Right?
