Yes. And most of them will be useless against shields. You need beam weapons to wear down the target. Even with grav well. Grav well, TY, etc, only "help" finish the target off. They won't be your primary damage-dealing abilities. You WILL need to rely on energy weapons.

I tried the 1-beam-from, 1-beam-rear, rest-mixed-warheads and it was utterly pathetic even against AI NPCs. You'll end up using TR and GW 3 or 4 times each before you finish off one medium level ship. Been there, done that, moved on to better setups.
