no, all energy types have the same type of weapons, single cannons, duel cannons, duel heavy cannons, beam arrays, duel beam banks.

the single cannon you are using is basically a cannon intended for cruisers to use, if they don't want to use beam arrays. its larger firing arc favors their slower maneuvering ability, wile more narrow arc duel cannons, and duel heavy cannons favor as escorts very good maneuverability.

your just using a cannon weapon that's a lot weaker then the cannons you should be using, regardless of energy type. go compare the damage output of your single cannons to some duel cannon and you will see.
