we're that true escorts on the fed side wouldn't be dominant. I'd need to see some real numbers on this as

doesn't show exactly where the buff gets added.

say your 8 beam array weapons in a broadside are doing 3000 DPS with 4 tac consoles

you're saying that another energy weapon console of a 26% damage bonus will increase your damage to 3195 DPS.

You're also saying that a fully stacked SA will be doing 4000 DPS. A net inscrease of 805DPS.

At that point everyone on here who does STFs, PvP, and Fleet Action would be in Sci vessels.

I still see more cruisers and escorts.

Now I'm not coming out and saying you're wrong, I'd just need to see the numbers on that as it doesn't appear to be the case.
