Another Proc test consideration: Most optimally spec'd T5 escorts run about 9k total shields. At -37 shield drain per tetryon glider shot, a quad cannon running 25-base power, no damage consoles, and CRF or CSV should still be able to remove all shields from all facings in less than 8 seconds (this assumes no shield recharge abilities being employed) if procs activate per hit. The target ship will have to remain stationary, but the low weapon power should prevent critical hits destroying the ship before the test is completed. If the shields cannot be drained completely in the 8 second time frame, then this will confirm that procs are weapon firing-cycle based, not hit based.

This is an easier test than the one I initially proposed since no data has to be recorded.
