Turbolasers are Capital Ship weapons designed to use the immense power necessary to blast through the dense armor and shielding of other large targets. They use turbine generators to build the necessary energy, storing it in a capacitor bank until it is discharged. The barrels of Turbolasers require substantial cooling to survive the enormous energy involved, so many are designed to recoil into a cryogenic "Sleeve" immediately after firing. Because of this longer firing sequence, all but the smallest Turbolasers are incapable of Autofire even when mounted in Cannon, Double/Quad or Fire-Linked configurations.

During the Clone Wars, Separatist engineers did a wide range of experimentation with Turbolaser technology, creating a number of variations on the standard weapon. One such variant was the Rapidfire Turbolaser, which was able to fire set to Autofire.

In addition, the Rapidfire Turbolaser is considered Braced; only taking a -2 penalty to its Autofire attacks. While the expensive technology was only scaled to work with Light Turbolasers and drew an incredible amount of power, they were considered a great success.
