Comparing a DHC to a BA shows a fairly large gap.

What'd I like to see is an upgrade to array damage to look something like these.
Base figures for a MkXII BA:
Base figures for a MkXII HBA:
(Would be fore mounted only and have a 200 degree arc)
I never said that difference did not exist between a single beam array and a dual heavy cannon in dammage.
The DBB is meant to be the "big" beam weapon in comparison to the DHC.
Slightly lower damage for a wider firing arc. It does fall short in comparison.
How about opening the DBB to 180 degree firing arc and instead making the proposed Heavy Beam array a DHC level damage weapon with its firing cyle and a 90 degree firing arc?
Then a new Beam BOff ability that basically CRF for beams set-up for tiers 1 to 3.
Of course would only fair to create a cannon version of beam overload as well.
