    • Aftermath Launcher: 360 degrees; does not require the H:T transformer
    • Armageddon Scattergun: 30 degrees
    • Chimera Heavy Scattergun: 30-60 degrees
    • Decimator Cannon: 60 degrees
    • Distortion Launcher: 30-60 degrees
    • Farsight Heavy Cannon: 30 degrees
    • Hellmouth Heavy Thrower: 30 degrees
    • Mongoose Heavy Rocket: 30 degrees
    • Silver Strike UAV Turret: 30 degrees
    Telegraph reload I believe was erroneously included, so just pay attention to the Reload Time stat.

    telegraph reload refers to how often the firing arc appears to the enemy when his ship enters the firing area. 
    Playing this game is like trying to row a boat up a waterfall.

    Firing arcs are currently limited to heavy turrets. So
    Aftermath and Distortion Launchers are not heavy turrets, and have a 360° firing arc.

    It has been requested a few times for all heavy turrets to show the range in the stat block or on the blueprint, but until that happens, this is what they look like.
    Armageddon/Hellmouth/Mongoose all have an identical arc and that 60° has been confirmed.
    Chimera - 30° - it looks to be the same as the Downburst, which is known to be 30°.
    Decimator - 70° - this is an estimate, it is a tad wider than the Mongoose, but it definitely short of 90°.
    Farsight - 45° - this is an estimate, it is clearly more narrow than the Mongoose, but wider than the Downburst.
    Silver Strike - 90° - it lines up nicely with the grid lines, so if it isn't 90°, it is pretty darn close.
