Turret Frigates

Homeworld 2


This is an item that was in the E3 2001 build but was subsequently removed. It is seen in concept artwork and in the 2001 E3 "Dust Wars" trailer. 

In the 2001 version of the game, the megaliths were extremely huge, so much so that the Hiigarans had a frigate-class ship that was designed to land on the megaliths and transform into a turret tower. The Vaygr also appear to have had a very similar craft.
