Anti Starfighter Batteries are relatively new additions to some large starship classes.
MK. 1 Anti Starfighter Battery Edit
The Mk. 1 Anti-Starfighter Battery is a square or rectangular weapon emplacement. They are either built in with the ship, or can be easily refitted to a ship by the engineering department. The Phaser Strips are mounted on the outside edges of the battery, with a sensor pad in the center.

Mk. 2 Anti-Starfighter Battery Edit
The Mk. 2 Anti-Starfighter Battery is a more complex system than the Mk. 1. It uses a similar square platform, but the sensors are mounted at the corners.
