      Default How Do I Deploy the Orbital Weapons Platform?

      After purchasing the Orbital Weapons Platform (OWP) from an Argon Shipyard, load it onto a TL and transport it to where you want to deploy it.

      When you have reached your destination, DO NOT eject the OWP from the cargo bay. That will not deploy it.

      Instead, select the option in the ships Custom Commands section for Place OWP. A screen will open up similar to one you would have for deploying a station that allows you to choose the location for the Weapons Platform. Select the position you want and the OWP will be deployed if they TL is close enough, or the TL will move closer and then deploy.

      To collect the OWP, select the Retrieve OWP command in the Custom Commands section. The TL will move into position and collect the OWP.

      Perhaps it should also be highlighted that the OWP doesn't come kitted out. It would be advisible to have the weapons and sheilds, along with a transporter device, ready on the TL so you can get the OWP to operational readiness

      good advice, above...

      in addition, I've found it helpful to have a dedicated superfreighter for supplying my OWPs... that way it's easy to see what I have available, and whether I'm short of anything or have enough for, say, two extras...
