Under the DS2 rules-as-written, this isn't a problem. If you want to
more than one of those weapons in a single DS2 game turn they all need
be of the same type and size and they all have to fire at the same
The main effect of putting three big guns (eg. HKP/5s or MDC/5s) in a 
single turret is that you increase the odds for drawing a "Systems Down:

Firer" chit and knock *your own* vehicle out...

"Death of a thousand cuts" - though again the biggest effect of adding 
extra gun barrels is that you increase the odds of drawing an SD:F chit
knock *your own* vehicle out :-/

FWIW one of the "cheesiest" concepts in DS2 is to use Superior FCS while

ignoring Stealth: Superior FCS is seriously underpriced, while Stealth
just as seriously overpriced... Enhanced FCS is underpriced as well,
not quite as badly as Superior :-/
