Newest planetary defensive grid built, currently phasing out the older systems.
Orbiting a planet or moon in massive rings (Smaller towards the poles, bigger towards the equator), these weapon emplacements are able to target enemies within a 6 LS radius (of the emplacements)
Consisting of Titan Mk IIs
, Heavy Gauss Cannons, Heavy Particle Batteries, Heavy Ion Batteries, Heavy Laser Batteries, Yellow Jacket Launchers, Redeemer Missile Launchers, Vortex Missile Launchers, Raptor/Aurora Defense Hangars.
These system would orbit horizontally on the outside grid and vertically on the inner grid, making the defenses much harder to get through, in between the two grids, a massive mine field lays, just in case the enemy gets through the first grid
The main power source for the grids (exception is the Titans) is from a solar source (local star), while back up power is provided by a mini fusion reactor, planetary shields are located at the poles and envelope a dual layer shield around the planet to not allow full bombardment for a time, of course these themselves are powered by Kitrium Reactors, safely located underground (Except Vartas, where they are up above ground and protected somewhere else).
Mixed in the outer grid you would find the shipyards, allowing USCC and allied ships to make quick repairs while the grids covered fire and other ships covered the repairing ships.
