I think it is important to throw out, that when people talk about DPS here, they almost entirely are talking about parsed DPS numbers.

While I am happy to say the beam boats of all kinds can do great things in contributing to STFs, we shouldn't write off escorts just yet.

A good deal of the FAW damage is wasted.
There is mitigation in PVE, however the combat log does not recognize it, and counts that damage as dealt.
The parser doesn't account for useless damage that is instantly regenerated (such as any damage done to cube or upper probes in Cure before lower probes are destroyed).

I think a good balance of FAW ships and CSV ships are the way to go to get maximum effectiveness in PVE, especially if everyone is spreading around APBs.
