If you are a tac they are buffed by the usual skills like APA, APB, FOMM, if you are a sci sensor scan, APB, Followed by a Scramble is nice also. For engies you only have APB to buff them. Scramble does the most damage to a person with peng secondary since it counts how many "allies" are around. This is the biggest issue with the torp it should not be modified by fake allies.

The DoT I am fine with but since the de facto rule is to use them with Scamble you have a few fleets with sci ships geared with just pengs and scrambles.
