2 turrets?

Hello. I have not yet started this game but I have a question. I have been watching vids of this on youtube, and noticed that there seems to be 2 different turrets that can be deployed...how do you choose which one to deploy? I have seen 2 different ones deployed on the same level...

If you choose the Tactical armor, you can assign up to 3 deployable items (2 slots initially - 3rd unlocks later) to the face buttons. This includes turrets, a radar (worthless?) a landmine (big bada-boom!)

During the level, if you hold down the left trigger, you can use the face buttons to deploy the selected item. When you start, you have a standard machine gun turret, a rocket turret, and a landmine. You'll obtain other turrets and stronger versions of them as your suit levels up. Hint: Deploy the turret on high ground whenever possible. I like dropping it on top of the Lander aircraft as the Ravagers always make a beeline towards the lander first, giving the turret plenty of time to chew them up. Also, do not get between your turret and the Ravagers. This game has friendly fire, and yes, I've been killed after taking a dozen slugs to the head from my own turret!

Deploying an item uses up energy, displayed on the lower right of your screen. Energy will eventually regenerate, but this also means there's a limit to how many items you can deploy at any given time.

UNLIKE 2017, turrets do not use up a weapon slot, so the tactical armor can still take 2 guns, AND a selection of turrets into combat with him!

The Battle armor also has some abilities you can assign to the face buttons. The Jet and Trooper armors have no selectable abilities. The trooper can run faster, reload faster, and revive downed soldiers faster (big whoop) whereas the Jet armor can fly...unfortunately its arsenal is pretty pathetic. At least, that's what I think.
