Cant tell the difference between T2 and T1 Hybrids

Ever since the new turret designs have been released on Tranquility the ability to easily tell the difference between the T2 and T1 variants of Hybrids has become in my opinion, impossible. The same can be said in some degree for Projectile turrets as the difference is noticeable but still not as obvious as before or as the current Laser turrets. Laser turrets are the only ones that seem to have retained their ability to be visually differentiated from T1 to T2 by the tell tale color on the turret itself (yellow= T1, blue= T2).

Hybrid turrets:

Neutron Blaster Cannon l

Neutron Blaster Cannon ll

425mm Railgun l

425mm Railgun ll

Projectile turrets:

800mm Reapeting Artillery l

800mm Reapeting Artillery ll

1400mm Howitzer Artillery l

1400mm Howitzer Artillery ll

Laser Turrets:

Mega Pulse Laser l

Mega Pulse Laser ll

As you can see for yourself if you haven't already taken the time to notice in game, the difference for the hybrid turrets is minimal while Projectile turrets are a little better off and Laser Turrets are the easiest to tell apart from T1 to T2. You can also notice that any difference there really is between the T1 and T2 guns will become harder to notice as you start to put them on ships (cant view turrets as closely) and as you go to the smaller sizes.

This needs to be fixed so that on grid intel of what your opponent is fitting and what he can use returns to what it was before the new turret designs were introduced.

That and I want my section of the market to get its sign back "you must be THIS awesome to use" and watch as all the noobs press their noses up against the store window drooling at all the cool toys I can use.Twisted

Edit: Links are fixed now to show the specific turret

???? I sense sarcasm as the hybrid turrets in question are more distinctive than the other two that said that werent cept the arties and railguns. The blasters actually had a different model.

Blasters are easy to pick apart in those pics bro. I like how easy it is to distinguish between say, beam and pulse, and AC's and artys, and rails/blasters now :)

my problem is that it was a much larger difference before the new turret designs. You must not of actually looked at the guns before the patch.
