- Weapons Officer – The leaders of the Weapons Department, these officers oversee the combat operations of all of the ship’s gun systems. They take their orders directly from the ship’s CO and XO and organize defensive gun batteries. Weapons Officers take responsibility for the training and drilling of gunners and technicians in their charge, ensuring the ship is at all times ready and fit to defend itself using its own weapons. If a defect occurs, the Weapons Officer takes responsibility for its investigation and repair. Weapons Officers may also can stand duty watches as Officer of the Watch in CIC.
- Weapons Enlisted – The enlisted members of the Weapons Department are the actual shooters and loaders of the guns. While the officers issue orders, these skilled members of the crew plot firing solutions on the fly while still delivering defensive (or offensive) fire from the Kharon’s gun batteries.
