I wouldn't sacrifice an armor console or shield capacity console for that little gain.
A dead ship does 0 dps.
Many Tac DPS buffs are multiplicative and scale extremely well with the extra damage of a 5th console. That's why a 5 console ship in PvP has an alpha that hits like a truck.
I'd sacrifice an amor or shield console any day of the week. Staying alive isn't that hard. As you said, a dead ship does 0 DPS, and a 5 tac console ship excels at making enemy ships dead,
I'm personally hoping they add the Pach Raptor as a new fleet ship and give it a 5 tac console layout.
