On a broadside built boat (1 fore 6 sides 1 aft mounts) how are beams going to be any better than they are now with a 270 firing arc?
Cannons would rock on such a beast but they would only be able to fire 3 weapons to a single side plus 2 beam arrays with thier overlapping firing arc. You lose 3 weapons on the broadside.
I think Single cannons need a wider firing arc of 200-220.
Dual cannons need a wider firing arc of 90.
and DHCs are fine the way they are.
