By the 2360s, Federation starship classes such as the Centaur-class, Ambassador-class and New Orleans-class were equipped with a number of phaser turrets of this type. When Starfleet began upgrading Deep Space 9's defenses in preparation of a Dominion assault in the early 2370s, turrets of this type were installed in the station's defense sails, along with Type-XI phaser arrays.
