What kind of weapon loadout are you using?

I ask because this is another aspect of escorts I have been struggling with. The prevailing opinion is to arm an escort around a full frontal attack. Now, if you do this, but then you need to turn your weakened shield, which presumably is your front shield, away from the enemy, well then you're doing very little damage. In fact, at the point, you're probably taking more damage than you're giving.
