Tetryon Glider wasn't giving the DHC a bigger bonus -- it was probably the DHC's higher crit-severity translating into slightly more damage.
It was a limited sample but that's not what your results show.


Your results show DCs performing better against shields without Tet Glider, vs. DHCs and then with Tet Glider it flips and DHCs pulled ahead in take down time over DCs.


The final results might be close but comparing the damage gained is interesting:

-DHC shield breach time = 20 seconds and 24 seconds (avg. 22 sec, 465 dps)
-DC shield breach time = 22 seconds and 25 seconds (avg 23.5 seconds, avg 435 dps)

DHCs gained 124 dps (+36% improvement), and an average 8s reduction in take down time
DCs gained 70 dps (+19% improvement), and an average 4.5s reduction in take down time


That's pretty huge, and could just be the result of only a handful of tests but it's pretty interesting none the less.
