For me, plasma's proc just doesn't hit/damage enough to be reliable for heavy targets (like those Neghvars), and I hate letting my target shoot down my torpedos!
I'd missed the buff to Transphasics. However he 80% is only to mines, Torpedo's are at 40%. None to shaby. Depends on the numbers for my Torpedo's in burn rate, but might be worth a switch, I'll hae to have a look when I get home
1x Mad idea: 3x Cannons up front 3X Transphasic mines in the rear. Straffing run with gravity well and then a cloud of Transphasic mines...
