Notes:
(1): This used to be the TL-13 150Mj laser, except it was oversized, and it had to be derated.

(2) The 210MJ laser can only be fired by a MFD; a workstation for local control is too large to fit the socket.

(3) The laser was derated from 207Mj because, as a rule, I don't round off to some convenient figure.

Notes:
(1): The listed range for the TL-11 150Mj Barbette is wrong. The beam pointer for that range is 2.0kl too big for the barbette, so it was derated to a 150,000km BP.
