A LOT is going to come down to the power of it's Tac consle and exactly how those Aux cannons work. If they work entierly off Aux power, and the big beam is decently powerful and also unaffected by Weapons power this is going to be really, really, really, nasty. Sensor Analysis plus 3 cannons is as good as 4 in practise. if your packing mines in the rear and a Kenetic Cutting Beam just for the target subsystems i don't see a major DPS loss from the low rear weapons capability.
Sure you won't have the full tactical options of an escort, but your talking only a small drop off compared to a full escort and frankly a good pet choice will make that and the rear loss up easy. O top of that your stil stacking decent sci abilities and a turn rate good enough to use all you've got. Everything else is pure icing on the cake.
