Default Planetary meson batteries?

Since a meson cannon can, according to most canon, fire thru atmosphere, armor and even whole planets I wonder why a lot of planets in traveller aren't defended by honking huge meson battery complexes that use sattelite data for targeting and are so huge and powerful they can blow up a tigress class dreadnought in one shot despite any meson screen she can carry. (The planetary meson battery might be bigger than the whole dreadnought, it ought to be able to overwhelm her meson screen.)

Any ideas on this, or would such defenses be so expen$ive that only sylea and a few other planets be able to afford them?
