I know at Gen Con, FFG had a demo xwing game that took place on the surface of the death star. The rebels had to take out a number of gun turents on the death star to clear a path to make the trench run. They had the table set up like the death star surface and had turrents on them.

 

Will FFG put out rules for the turrents? How about a death star surface expansion with what they had at Gen Con for a play area with the turrents?

Not sure if FFG will be doing this.  But come over to AFM.  Some people have posted cards that you can print out with the stats for the turrets.  Check them out.

 lol I was like Wtf is a turrent… so I googled it, and came upon Turrent: A larger structure serving the same purpose as a turret, compared to the stand-alone gun, turret.

Commonly used outside the US where proper English DOES exist. It should be added to an English dictionary, if it has not been already. Turret is instead used as being part of a tower or building.

It might also relate to a more automatic and continuously firing weapon.

Regardless of the differences, it is sometimes used interchangeably with turret and found in both forms in video games.
The missile turrent was a base defence while the naval boats had turrets as their means of combat.

Your Google result sent you to Urban Dictionary. "Turrent" isn't a proper word; it's a misspelling or mispronunciation.

I heard from a guy who knows a guy that wave three would have the TIE bomber, the B-Wing, the Tall Turret and the Small Turret and each has its own box.
