Sorry, you are correct. I've got an error stuck in my head where each level of rapid is x10.

Subtracting the weight from the cargo hold is not the same as sticking the gun in the cargo hold and using it from there. I agree that it needs to be mounted in order to be useful, and the way its mounted will effect both the additional weight cost and the circumstances of its use. I wouldn't require a spaceships systems turret, especially a full sized turret for a comparatively light gun. Having the turret weigh x10 the weapon weight is a touch excessive, especially when suggested caliber for SM+5 ships is 10cm.
