It's also large enough that there's angles where you can fire both aft beams and fore torpedoes, making bombardment a rather attractive option.
There is one thing, one thing in the game you can park and shoot for. It does not make it an award winning strategy.
Heck there is a spot 2.25 to 1.75k under the gate where you can get it in all firing arc, I sure wouldn't recommend that as a great way to tank a cube.
