The largest of those gun turrets can move disturbingly fast. Watching a CIWS suddenly come to life and look in a direction just looks unreal. I imagine with an air threat this thing could be queued by the air defense radar and within a second be looking in that direction.-Dragmire- said:I don't imagine that the physical machinery can pivot and tilt at the speed that people associate with a mouse cursor. Imagine trying to aim by repeatedly panning in a particular direction because a single hand movement doesn't match the machines ability to reach where you're trying to aim. Twin sticks or a controller do fine since you hold the input down until it's aimed properly.
