Or maybe make those turn rate consoles boost by a fixed amount rather than a percentage. So +2 on a base of 5 or 6 would make a good difference to a cruiser, but not so much on a 15 escort. Not that an escort is likely to use one of these anyway.
The only ship class that needs them are cruisers, and the EPS are nearly always more useful depending on set-up. So putting a couple of them for say total +4 could make a viable strat to turn quicker and put more narrow arc weapons on front with maybe turrets to rear for example. Instead of loading up EPS and being broadside beam boats with the odd torp. It's never going to out turn an escort by a long shot, but gives you more options..
