First, a turret is a puny thing to waste. Barely noticeable. From what I understand, the KCB deals almost the same damage as the 180deg torp, so not bad.
In addition, there are at least 3 good reasons why I can't use a regular torp:
- I have no fore slots available for torps, and I sure ain't gonna let the enemies out of my DHC arc.
- I have no free Boff stations to fit torp abilities in anyway.
- I don't have any points in "Projectile Weapons". The cutting beam is affected by energy weapon skill, so I don't have to waste a single skillpoint in projectile weapons.
Sure, it's no magical super weapon, but it should be able to hold it's own.
