I currently use 2 phaser arrays fore and aft plus one torpedo launcher fore. Turrets would be another option, but I have no experience with those.!
Recon ships fly very similar to escorts. I fly with 2 dual beams, 1 torp, and 3 turrets, and can keep ships in my 90° arc almost all the time. Things that give me issues are tiny ships, which are free food for my turrets anyways.
This is obviously RA level commentary, and for 1/2 of the ship selections. I can't see java at work, so their link might show something that would nullify my opinion.
