(Also: The PVEscort build in the THG uses a torpedo.)

Therefore the spec includes torpedoes as well as flow capacitors (which are only needed for glider and other shield or power drains that are not part of the default builds of the guide).

The spec is something that allows you to experiment on your own without requiring you to waste resources on respecs. And at the same time it is perfectly viable for high-end premade pvp.
Thank you Hilbert for responding to this. So to emphasize something to those who might be critical of the builds in the Hilbert Guide, please add economic value and versatility to your criteria when evaluating Hilbert's builds in the guide.
