This is a basic weapon mount like fixed position facing forward mounts on a star-fighter or turret mounting. The mount is internally installed with a matching automatic retracting hatch on the outside of the hull to allow firing of the cannons. Unlike the turret this mount provides very limited movement range. It is provided with a 30 degree adjustment in each direction from its standard position, allowing for very basic adjustments. Any cannon type can be mounted between rocket launchers to Ion and Laser Cannons. Although, the mounting is meant for medium to heavy cannons only as having light cannons would be almost pointless.
It is a way to explain the broadside mount just as if I were to say two forward facing fixed cannons, people would be able to see what broadside cannons would mean. I intend to have a some broadside mounts installed down the road and wanted this to link to in my explanation.
No as AT does not exist anymore, but would not be AT if it still did anyway.
