And the point pretty much everyone else was making is that two weapons
mounted in the same turret almost invariably DON'T fire at different
targets at the same time - they're either used against different targets
*different* times (eg. the coax MG on an MBT), or against the *same*
at the same time (eg. wet-navy battleship multi-gun turrets).
