Dual Heavy Cannon Mk XII: 384 DPV, 256 DPS

6x Beam Array + Sensor Scan: 1373 DPS
4x Cannon+4x Turret: 1376 DPS
8x Beam Array : 1408 DPS
4x DHC+3x Turret: 1420 DPS

.... yeah, HUGE differences, right?
Truth is: before power levels and BOff powers come into play, weapon types are already near perfectly balanced with ship types.

Seems the issue is not about DPV then but burst damage. Something a Cruiser is not designed to do easily for a reason.
