So if you have 145 power (for example, I'm not sure if that's attainable), and fire off a Dual Cannon for -10 power, you will go down to 135 power, but you will dish out damage equivalent to a 125 power setting. Firing off more weapons will give you the damage bonus of 125 power, until your 'actual' level starts to dip below that.

The max displayed level is 125 though.
As far as I know this is correct. At RA5 I run 90/60/25/25 normally b/c of all the bonuses I already run weapons at a hight level so I tend to just put a lil extra into shields.
