Just making a modification to my first post

...about the Quad lasers....I don't think that the Quads were broken off the turret....I think they were modded to allow fibre optics to be added

Do we know, though, that the fiber optics weren't there in ANH? Because I'm pretty sure they'd given up on that technique* after the first film.

(*for guns that is)

I can't be certain,...but the reference pics of the 5 footer at the time of ANH,....the quads are definitely on a fork gimbal, allowing the guns to swing to pretty good angles

Afterwards....possibly when she was being modded for ESB....the fork is missing & a rod/tube connects the Quad in a fixed position

ANH:

Hm. It looks to me like the fibres in the cannon tips were present for Star Wars/ANH. But the tubes or wires or fibres visible today shoved in the back of the cannon assembly definitely weren't present then.
