The RTLS is a rail-based Tactical Laser System.
Four RTLS were known to be deployed. These were based on a network of railroads built around Excalibur's position, which included underground sites. They were armed with a laser cannon capable of 360-degree rotation.
During Operation Eternal Liberation, Excalibur was protected by several RTLS units. These units could fire their TLS cannons in a near 180° angle within a certain radius. The units were paired in twos so as to cover each other's blind spots but in spite of that, there was still a narrow gap within their laser coverage, serving as their major weakness. This weakness was exploited by UNF pilots to their advantage so as to avoid both cannons and dispatch them safely.
