Auxillary Dual Heavy cannons are influenced solely by your Auxillary Power level and drain it when fired.

Suaveks, try using 3 Auxillary dual heavy cannons up front and a pair of tricobalt mines in back with the following tactical abilities: 2 Tac Team, Cannon Scatter Volley 1, Cannon Scatter Volley 2, and Dispersal Pattern: Beta 1. Use a tractor beam to immobilize the raptor then punch a hole in its shields while deploying the mines. Grav Well multiple raptors and them mine the middle of them. You should have little trouble crushing the tenacious buggers, even if you aren't specced heavily into Projectile weapons.
