Default Clarify turret mass, please

Getting back seriously into old style Traveller and under ship construction you can allocate a turret to a hardpoint (check), assign an additional ton for fire control for the turret (check) and then decide whether it's a single, double, or triple turret (check) any of which takes 1 ton.

Uhh, squeel, brakes on. Are they saying a turret with 3 weapons (triple) takes a ton, and a turret with 1 weapon (single) takes a ton, as well as a turret with 2 weapons (double) ALSO takes a ton of ship space??

Am I right in reading it that way? Even though it seems to go against common sense to say 3 times as many laser or missile etc weapons mass the same?

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. Just to put my mind at ease.
