I agree with the above. This is what I use for my Tac for PVE:
Commander Tac: TT1, CSV1, HYT3, AP-Beta3
Lt.Tac: TT1, CSV1
DOFFS: 3 Attack Pattern Conn-doffs, 2 Projectile Weapon Officers (or any 2 DOFF's you find more useful for your build)
AP-Beta3 with 3 AP-Conn-Doffs lets you keep AP-Beta3 up 66% of the time (10 out of each 15 second cycle) -- this offers a HUGE damage boost at 49 resist-debuff per target. CSV1 x2 also offers more multi-target coverage, and when combined with AP-Beta3, the combo benefits the whole team while shooting at whatever you hit.
