These have been nagging me for a while and I havent been able to find an naswer:

1. Can the POS guns shoot from one side of the shield to the other side if someone is a target on that side? like so ---> () *.

2. Is there an optimal placement of groups/platforms to maximise your efficiency at taking down targets?

3. should you always fill the guns to their maximum ammo?

4. can an exclusive ECM POS (with hardeners) in highsec work?

5. what does the -75% cycle speed on caldari towers ECM really mean?

6. any other tips for gun and other placement is welcome

2. There are a variety of approaches to gun placement, but basically it comes down to don't put them all in the same place... at least use two groups on opposite sides, beyond that I don't know if it really matters...

3. Other than the cost and logistics of bringing in the ammo, I don't think there is any harm

4. It wont kill anything, if its a large using lots of hardeners alone will greatly discourage anyone from attacking it... but focus on the hardeners over ECM unless you expect to be able to bring in a defense fleet.

6. If you are planning your POS defenses to be more than a deterant (ie actually kills things) you really need POS gunners. Lots of medium guns, with spares to online and replace any the attackers disable so that you can slow the rate your POS looses its DPS. Artillery is popular with all types of POS, though for Amarr lasers are popular too.
