Yes, Tetryons are one of the good choices for a Torpedo boat.
Along Disruptors and Phasers.

But the Akira-R isn't a torpedo boat!

1. If you run high Weapon Power, Torpedoes are under-par.
The whole point of a Torpedo boat is to keep decent DPS while killing your Weapon power in favour of something else (usually Aux)... not a good idea on an Escort.

Tbh, the ideal number of Torpedoes on an Escort is somewhere between 0 and 0.

2. Tetryons are good... if you have high Flow Capacitors; which on an Escort char is unlikely.

Tl;dr: Torpedo boats are SVs, torpedoscorts are terrible.
