But lets not get it twisted. Sensor Analysis is a damage over time, that ruins abilities like BFW which will automatically target other enemies. So right of the bat you cannot do the damage of an escort because you cant use cannons, and you likely cant keep a target with dual beams.
2nd Sensor Analysis is basically increased chanelled damage over time. So saying 33% more damage is not really accurate since its very situational. Things like jamming sensors on the tac that is now your 2nd attacker is impossible. Escorts however are built to hit hard and run, major initial damage with stacking buffs and the most tac boffs. Which is great and cant take away from an escorts huge ability to damage fast!
3rd even if you have every sci damage attack ability equiped you still cant have attack and aux power levels both at max so one is ineffective.
But I say just a rear slot woulf be nice.
accutly it those work with dual beams and beam overload. It those not work with BFW because your CHANGING targets. Every time you change target you drop the buff and have to rebuild it.
That right you CAN not do the damage of escort. BECAUSE escort are glass cannon. They do lots of damage in short period of time, because once under attack they easy to destroy. They not have the shields of science vessel or the hull of cruiser.
Accutly you can get darn close on my one toon in science I have about 100 weapons and 80 aux.
