Default Weapon emplacements

I was thinking of making a bunker with a lascannon weapon emplacement that can be used by any infantry that occupy it. Is this a good idea? I think I can make it look really good but I'm wondering on your all's thoughts.

it'd be cool as an objective on a board so long as it was outside of deployment zones and people weren't allowed to infiltrate onto it (maybe a rule stating you have to be in base contact with it for one turn before the lascannon operates?)

Or perhaps make it part of the army in that you pay points for it, say 60 points for the entire piece, which may be deployed in your deployment zone and any troops within it can use the lascannon and fire out of it as normal, and also gain say an automatic cover save. I say 60 because it's to cover the lascannon and the fact that you can have a cover save up to 3+ from it (depending upon how small the gap is that the troops inside can fire from if you get my drift).

maybe multiple heavy weapons as objectives, or just emplacements you could occupy and use.

well i was thinking each army could have one emplacement and the emplacement could be anything from artillery to a med station where units could heal wounds (but then it wouldnt be a emplacement)

Something like you have to occupy the Lascannon in such and such turns to destroy the enemy tank on one side of the board.
