The only way to justify such a weapon is to give it the DBB 90fa at which point you've just redesigned to DBB, only slightly weaker. SO why have it it all?


I much prefer other ideas that don't try to make the lowest beam based weapon suddenly the best with out handicaps appropiate to the buffing.

The idea of a heavy Beam Array with a 90 firing arc, the DBBs being bumped to 200 firing arc with standard beam arrays remaining the same still seems best to me.
