Though the plasma turret is nice for moderat spam but the loss of tac console is a bit much of a trade off.
I don't know, the RMC has a 5 minute cooldown, affecting wpn, shld, and aux power subsystems for only 10 seconds. Additionally it only repairs the aux subsystem. The Enhanced Plasma Manifold has a 3 minute cooldown, affects shld and aux subsystems, lasts 20 seconds, and repairs both of those subsystems. And IMO, a device slot on an escort is much more valuable than a sic console slot.
