This is always sub-optimal. Tooltips show dps as the same, but when things actually start firing this is not the case. Firing cycle and weapon drain mechanics means that DHCs will always out perform DCs.

DHC: Fire, rest, rest
DC: Fire, fire, rest

Weapon drain starts immediately so that second fire from the DC happens at a lower power level.

Tric mines for STFs. Period. The torp console has seemed pretty underwhelming, especially for PvP, but I don't own one and don't know how people had spec'd for it who were using it.

Most people don't run more than one torp tac console since energy weapons have so much more uptime.

Beyond that it's playstyle. There's also no mention here of doffs and boffs, so it's hard to comment on the equipment which has become the least important aspect of the game at this point.

I don't think the Armitage has the tac slots to field CRF, HYT, and BO, but that's just me. You could possibly make it work but it would depend on doffs.
