Well with a Fleet Somraw raptor one could make a (2) DBB (2) torp build like so,

TT1 HY2 BO3 APO3
TT1 BO2 HY3
EPTS1 A2SIF3
EPTW1
HE1 TSS2

and attempt to stagger BO with EPTW1 and the HY to deal damage. Not my cup of warnog, though.

I think the double front torp build though is just another example of a speciality build that is viable but takes experience to use properly.


Moving the cannon abilities down one tier across the board would be great but unbalanced in my opinion as escorts could run even better builds and while the Cruiser would be able to do the same they would still fall way behind the escoerts in dealing damage.
