still, the problem is turning. if you turn for your beams, you pretty much lose dps from the DHCs, so in the end even if in one specific situation the beam would work better (aft), the turret overall would still dps more (unless you are talking about the tricobalt build, which is a bit different case)

I dont think I was clear. I have the aggro from beginning to end in most of the cases. my high DPS and the 2 points in threat control (I hadnt time to respec for 6 points in there) will nearly always get the aggro for me, hence I have to DPS and tank (which a CC ship should actually do)
