I only got an S one with the Widow Fighter. Are the stats on the normal versions from the capital ships different? Judging from the S version the damage is really a bit on the low side. But with two of them, 3 projectile doffs should produce a respectable rate of fire.
We are only allowed to equip one per ship, for some reason.

Though like somebody pointed out, watch out, because you can splash yourself with it. The damage is trivial but that -50 power drain is not fun.
May I ask how many points you have in Flow Capacitors? I have 9 points, and everyone with whom I've tested this reported a drain of 50 on their weapons and engines when using High Yield 3; if Flow Capacitors does not actually affect it, I'm going to ditch those skillpoints.
